I cry away the rivers that flood my angry heart
but when the tide is low again the tears will soon restart.
You left me out to dry, you never saw me through,
the waterworks remind me now I'm still in love with you.

We can run through the streets,
we can dare to wonder.
We'll go dancing in a rainstorm
and fill the world with thunder.

So take my steadfast hand, this time I won't let go,
I'm willing to forget the past if you'll only let me know.
I'll give you one more chance, I hope you'll make it right,
just tell me that you love me and I'm all you want tonight.

We can run through the streets,
we can dare to wonder.
We'll go dancing in a rainstorm
and fill the world with thunder.

And when the storm is raging there's nothing we should hide,
this love is sweet redemption for every tear I've cried.
But how can I be sure you're willing to be strong?
That you're seeing the same lightning and singing the same song?

We can run through the streets,
we can dare to wonder.
We'll go dancing in a rainstorm
and fill the world with thunder.

We're up to our knees in love and now you understand
you'd much rather be swept away than standing on dry land.
I told you not to fight it 'cause in your heart you know
this storm called love goes raging on no matter where we go.

I tried to relate the elements of a thunderstorm to the journey of forgiveness in love... hope you enjoy it!
