The Postmarks – Looks Like Rain lyrics

Lightning flashes
when you glance
i'm thunderstruck
walk in slow motion
ran a hand on a
rainy railing
cats and dogs falling
but kept on walking

head afloat
like a paper boat
gliding through puddles
of rippling rainbows
the gray sky can't
dampen my spirit

lightning flashes
fluttering eyelashes
the pitter-patter
of the rain
echoes in my chest
heart is racing
shoes are squishing
as feet hasten

swim against the flood
of the people in the street
tried to keep up with your pace
but you just slipped away
with the tear down my cheek

drops come through
small holes in the sky
sound of a thousand fingers tapping
as i wave good-bye

drops come through
small holes in my eyes
sound of a thousand heartbeats stopping
as i wave good-bye
