I stay awake through the night
I stay awake through the night
Listening to the incessant rain.
Might as well turn on the light.

Time for a trip down memory lane
All to the rain’s beat
You’ve been there, do I need to explain?

Down this path, I stroll with weary feet
I know the memories waiting to make me cry
Must I keep going down this street?

I want to bid the past good-bye
Rise to an unfathomed height
Reach for the blue sky

But that’s not happening, right?
I stay awake through the night.

Then, the happy thought's come
They battle the sadness
But more memories come,
And come,
They make me crumble in the inside

But one thing
Can change it all,
What might it be?
It's a long road,
And I'm on my own.
I'm scared of the things,
That I don't know.
