"Just because it's raining doesn't mean you can't go swimming."

I lie in my bed
The curtains blow so gently
In the raging storm

A boy and girl come
Somewhere, an alarm clock rings
The boy and girl leave

My hand reaches out
I pull it back, and lie down
Onto the pillow

I remember when
He destroyed all my flowers
And broke her baton

His anger comes near
I reach out once more, but then
Take my hand away
