Your Rain by Akira Yamaoka
Dancing alone again, again
The rain falling.
Only the scent of you remains to dance with me.
Nobody showed me how to return the love you give to me.
Mom never hugged me.
Dad loves a stranger more than me.
I never wanted to ever bring you down.
All that I need are some simple loving words.
You touched my body once, it burns me still softly.
Never forget never again we'll be. I cried.
Out of my head and I don't know what I found.
Over and over I feel it break me down.
On the sidewalk of the city.
Are my screams just a whisper?
Busy people going nowhere.
See me soak in the rain.
No compassion, nothing matters.
My resistence is waning
Like a flower in the basement waiting for a lonely death.
