Once upon a time there was a story so unreal is hard to tell
And no one seems to understand
Once within my mind there was a name that I can't even start to spell
Cause I don't wanna break again

All I do and all I am
Everything's because of him

My head my heart my honesty
Myself and I with all of me
I would give him more than I had
But all I had was not enough head
My voice my eyes will never see
The way they looked and spoke of me
Know where I can go to regain
Whatever I was before the rain

Every single time I close my eyes
My mind goes back to where he was
Cause she don't wanna understand (no no)
Love is not a crime
But it sure feels like doing time
My mind is shown
That she don't wanna Let me in, no

And all I do and all I am
Everything's because of him

My head my heart my honesty
Myself and I with all of me
I would give him more than I had
But all I had was not enough head
My voice my eyes will never see
The way they looked and spoke of me
Know where I can go to regain
Whatever I was before the rain

Whatever I was before the rain

Once upon a time there was a story so unreal is hard to tell
And no one seems to understand

Oohow

My head my heart my honesty
Myself and I with all of me
I would give him more than I had
But all I had was not enough head
My voice my eyes will never see
The way they looked and spoke of me
Know where I can go to regain
Whatever I was before the rain

Oh Oh Oh

Whatever I was before the rain(x 2)
