  • Yeah, like the threat of the darkest clouds rollin' in on a sunny day
    Yeah, like a field that has no rain
    Yeah, like a dog that wanders aimless, with no mane
    Yeah, like a cut without the pain

    You couldn't feel this?
    You couldn't take the pain?
    You couldn't live this?

    And I'm just trying to get through to you,
