let's trade

November 11, 2010

one drop
for one drop
let's trade
a rain drop
for a tear drop
let's trade

cause standing in this storm
cold and alone
i've lost my warmth
it chills my heart
causing pain
and my tears
mix with rain

i'd trade the rain drops
for my tear drops
if i could trade
i'd make the sky clear
i'd make my eyes clear
if i could trade

cause standing in this storm
cold and alone
i've lost my warmth
it chills my heart
causing pain
and my tears
mix with rain

but the rain slides off my skin
while my tears hide underneath
can't tell them apart
no one else can see

cause standing in this storm
cold and alone
i've lost my warmth
it chills my heart
causing pain

and i'd trade the rain drops
for my tear drops
if i could trade
yea one drop
for one drop
let's trade

cause standing in this storm
cold and alone
i've lost my warmth
it chills my heart
causing pain
and my tears
mix with rain
