    it's poetry.

    [video=youtube;jdbeNuvb9Wg]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdbeNuvb9Wg[/video]

    I hear the drizzle of the rain
    Like a memory it falls
    Soft and warm continuing
    Tapping on my roof and walls.

    And from the shelter of my mind
    Through the window of my eyes
    I gaze beyond the rain-drenched streets
    To England where my heart lies.

    My mind's distracted and diffused
    My thoughts are many miles away
    They lie with you when you're asleep
    And kiss you when you start your day.

    And a song I was writing is left undone
    I don't know why I spend my time
    Writing songs I can't believe
    With words that tear and strain to rhyme.

    And so you see I have come to doubt
    All that I once held as true
    I stand alone without beliefs
    The only truth I know is you.

    And as I watch the drops of rain
    Weave their weary paths and die
    I know that I am like the rain
    There but for the grace of you go I.

    The Boxer is my personal anthem. It's like they're singing about me. Do you know what I'm saying?
