I stand out breaking in the Portland rain
I see the end there in your eyes as I watch you drive away

I walk back blind into my cold dreamhouse
And I think about the damage
I put the big light out

I sit down smoking on my basement floor
I hear footsteps up above me
They are right outside my front door

The only place that I want to be
Is watching you move up on top of me
The only sound that I want to hear
Is the rain against my window as you whisper in my ear

Baby, you know I love it when you call me baby

I go upstairs and find my twelve-year-old
She's got tears running down her face
Sitting sad at my piano

She sings soft words from that old Beatles song
And I think about my yesterday and all the things I did wrong

The only place that I want to be
Is watching you sweet dream in bed right next to me

The only sound that I want to hear
Is the rain against my window as I pull you near

Don't give up on me
Baby, can't you you see?
We could make this be the way it used to be

Don't give up on me
I wish I could make you see
That I am changing everyday, trying to build a better me

We could make this be the way it's supposed to be
Don't give up on me

I stand out in the rain where I watched you drive away
I never thought I would live to see
This fucked-up day

I stand out in the rain in the middle of the night
I wish that it could wash away the beast inside

The only thing I want to do is kiss you when I am coming deep inside of you

The only sound that I want to hear
Is the rain against my window as I hold you

Don't give up on me
Oh baby, can't you see?
We could make this be the way it used to be

Don't give up on me
I wish I could make you see that I am changing everyday
Trying to build a better me

We could make this be the way it's supposed to be
Don't give up on me
