    I feel as if I am singing in the rain
    Seeing the radiant sunshine
    And then attracting the enemy


    All I can do is open up my heart
    Tired of evasive minds
    Trying to persuade me to stay

    With them

    In secret

    To drown in their stinging passion

    I'm tired of feeling left out
    I'm tired of silent cries
    I shout at the top of my lungs

    I'm tired
    I'm tired

    Of being bothered
    By people
    Who only want to bring me down

    I need you

    You-

    Wherever you are

    I need you to come
    And erase these tears

    I hide in the darkness

    I drown out my sorrow
    By my laughter

    Isn't it obvious
    The reason I am standing here

    Sweet melodies
    Only to keep a good face

    I'll try pleasantly
    To have joy

    I'll try deeply
    Not to look so pitiful

    And please
    Please

    Don't look down on me

    All I need is a friend

    To listen

    To care

    Just to know I'm here

    Sincerely yours

    Singing in the rain

    Desert Storm...

    Sits quietly

    Very poignant piece.

    It made me think of the Dramatics....

    "I wanna go outside in the rain. It may sound crazy but I wanna go outside in the rain..."


    My favorite part was this:

    This flow has so much going on.
    It is powerful.
    Many lines I relate to
    One does get tired.
