she says its cold outside and hands me her raincoat
she always worried about thing like that
she says it’s all gonna end and it might as well be my fault
and she only sleeps while it’s raining
and she screams and her voice is straining

G D, C

D G D, C, D
i’ts 3am i must be lonely
G D, C
when she says baby
well i cant help but be scared of it all sometimes
says the rain’s gonna wash away i believe it

and in her color portrait world she belives she’s got it all
she swears the moon don’t hang quite as high as it used to
and she only sleeps when it’s raining
and she screams and her voice is straining


(3rd Verse)

and the clock on the wall has been stuck at three for days
she thinks that happiness as mat that sits on her doorway
but outside it starts raining
