THE RAIN BEHIND HER EYES

You wake forgiven, every morning her heart's a clean blank page
The actress steps in front of the curtain that's closing on the stage.
The freedom and the longing of a beauty that doesn't know her age.
Certain of tomorrow but not sure of her given name.
And so there falls a rain behind her eyes.
Oooo, the rain behind her eyes
She keeps the rain behind her eyes.


But while she's laughing a shadow passes across the blue skies
And drops a diamond on her cheek before she can hide
The secret entrance to her long lost abandoned mine
The only sign that there falls a rain behind her eyes
The rain behind her eyes
A hidden vortex turning counterclockwise
She keeps the rain behind her eyes.
She'll close her lids and lay down and die
When she can't keep the rain behind her eyes.
She'll kiss your hand and whisper goodbye
The day that she can't keep the rain behind her eyes.
