I sat staring out the library window for ten minutes or more
Just watching the rain and the way the droplets form
I trace the tracks that they take through the condensation on the window pane
Like the paths that we make though a conversation in the pouring rain

And though I tried so hard to tell you every day
Somehow, no matter how hard, I couldn't find the right words to say
Now the water's flooding out and its running down my cheeks
Everywhere I go I thought I'd catch a glimpse

At the bus shelter I sat next to you
I didn't know what to do
So we just sat there in silence

Why do buses always come in threes?
You caught the one in front of me
And all the way home I watched its red tail lights
Dancing in the spray
Squinting through to catch a glimpse of you

Every raindrop that falls
Runs into the ocean
Washed out of the gutter and into the draught
And into the ocean and
The ocean will rise the ocean will fall
All over everything
And though I might rise and though I might fall
Until the ocean ends

And though my stop had come to soon
And the bus had stopped again
I got off and started walking up my broken garden path
Put my key in the rusty lock
Looking back over my shoulder
Push the door and then go in
As you drive away

So pick me up and bury me home, gently
You're lifting me up and bearing me home, gently
Set me down there and bury me here, gently
You let me down then so let me go now, gently
