lyrics

awake again, another night
the memories of times when things were rational
I can’t forget, just wanna forget
all of the secrets kept to keep the lines drawn

but tonight, I can’t sleep
& dishonor runs deeper than I thought
when all you have left to lose is the weakness
that you’ve been running from so long

let it rain; let the water wash away every stain
I’d rather not remember, but they’ll stay
& I know that there’s a reason why I crave
an easy surrender

time has gone, taking away
all those mistakes I made when I was just a child
what remains, so many regrets
the warning never said was, “Think before you lie...”

even now, I’m miles away
& I can hear his voice saying the same phrase
“For you, a thousand times over,” & here I am
a stone thrower shattering the blame

let it rain; let the water wash away every stain
I’d rather not remember, but they’ll stay,
& I know that there’s a reason why I crave
an easy surrender

I hope that distance makes it better
& I promise one day to read your letters
but for now, I’m letting go of maybe,
so that I can be the one that saves me...finally

let it rain; let the water wash away every stain
I’d rather not remember, but they’ll stay,
& I know that there’s a reason why I crave
an easy surrender; let it rain
there’s a reason
