Rainy day, did you come in here to stay?
I can feel your overflow flooding my patio.
Spraying gray, adding needles to the hay,
casting shadows on my heart,
dragging me to the start.

Oh my, weather, what have you done?
Plucked my feathers out one by one.
Lost my place under the sun.

So you left, just as fast as you came by,
no graffiti in the sky, the tears are all vaporized.
Oh, don't you know? Happiness is not for me,
happiness won't set me free.
Only the melancholy.

Well known lump sits in my sore throat.
Endless ocean with no life boat.
Thunder knocking on my door.

They won't go away, not till you tell them to.
It's time to embrace them as a part of you.
