Prayers For Rain

The Cure


You shatter me
Your grip on me
A hold on me
So dull it kills

You stifle me
Infectious sense
Of hopelessness
And prayers for rain

I suffocate
I breathe in dirt
And nowhere shines
But desolate

And drab the hours all spent
On killing time again
All waiting for the rain

You fracture me
Your hands on me
A touch so plain
So stale it kills

You strangle me
Entangle me
In hopelessness
And prayers for rain

I deteriorate
I live in dirt
And nowhere glows
But drearily and tired

The hours all spent
On killing time again
All waiting for the rain

You fracture me
Your hands on me
A touch so plain
So stale it kills

You strangle me
Entangle me
In hopelessness
And prayers for rain

Prayers for rain
Prayers for rain
Prayers for rain
