Dirty Rain-

Last time I was here, it was rainin'
Doesn't rain here anymore
The streets were drowned, and the water's waining
All the runes washed to shore
Now I'm here lookin' through the rubble
Tryin' to find out who we were
Last time I was here, it was rainin'
Ain't rainin' anymore

Last time I was here, you were waitin'
You're not waitin' anymore
The window's broke and the smoke's escapin'
The books scattered across the floor
And the church bells are ringin' through the sirens
And your coat was full of bulletholes
Last time I was here, you were waitin'
You're not waitin' anymore

So
May the wind blow, may the moonlight know your name
So
Let the needle move the record 'round
'Til the walls cave in
And you and I are out there dancin' in the dirty rain

Last time I was here, you were waitin'
You're not waitin' anymore
And your eyes were filled with terror and tears watchin' the door
As the stars exploded with gunfire
I saw you smilin' just before
Last time I was here, you were cryin'
You ain't cryin' anymore

So
May the wind blow, may the moonlight know your name
So
Let the needle move the record 'round
'Til the walls cave in
And you and I are out there dancin' in the dirty rain

Ooooh in the dirty rain
Mmmm in the dirty rain
In the dirty rain
