There's Going to be Rain On My Window Tonight

from Ten Things Which Aren't Love by Pale Bird

lyrics

I was quiet
To an uncomfortable degree
Staring at the water
You wondered what was wrong with me
But I was trying to see
To the bottom of the lake
And everything I saw
It just went on and on

A chasm full of stars
Far beneath the feet
Of those lazy trees - lazying around
Why will no one tell them
Don’t you know one day you’re going to get struck down?
But no one said a word

And this was just a little thing
Probably shouldn’t mean that much to me
But there’s going to be
Rain on my window tonight

And I’m such a great magician
I conjured a void of meaning
And all kinds of thoughts and feelings
Were drawn towards its centre
And I’m such a great inventor
I invented a device
To read all the thoughts and feelings
You had and never voiced
And that is how I heard
About all the things which aren’t love
But they have the same shape and taste
And they have the same sting
Because love’s a word you use
So you don’t have to choose
Love’s a word you throw around
Over everyone and over everything
Both minuscule and huge

And this was just a little thing
Probably didn’t mean that much to you
But there’s going to be
Rain on my window tonight
