I used to have a lot of faith in rain
I thought it could wash away bad history just as soon as it came
And mud would cover up the things I’d buried in the dirt
But couldn’t quite get out of sight because I was addicted to the hurt

And no matter how many steps I take you follow me just like a cape
Shouting out all of my big red mistakes
That I’ve made over the years and it’s the reason why I’m swimming in a sea of compromise

But at least I’ve got this little rowboat to help keep me afloat
While I navigate the waters of your frothing castle moat
And soon a salty darkness will come fill my shoes
And I’ll be forced to admit that I was just born to lose

And I left that half opened envelope on my desk
And walked away thinking it was probably for the best
To never know just the words you wanted to say to me
Cause I’ve always been in love with a good mystery
