lyrics

Liquid blue
The streaming glows in the sky
But while I watch my words catch in my throat I stand
sheltered from it all
Beneath the dripping leaves
Gazing out at the shimmer
The glimmer

Rainstorm
I can only imagine, where you’re coming from
Rainstorm
tears of gold, l’acrima del oro
Rainstorm
you lift me up,you wash me clean
Rainstorm
you lift me up, to calm the storm within
Rainstorm

Choker jal jole pure (the water from my eyes burns)
Top top kore pore (drop by drop the tears they fall)
Agun dhoraya (and alight the fire)
pran-er chhai (in the ashes of my soul)
chomkai cheel cheel (to flash gleaming)
kore booker shurjo (my heart’s sun)
shonar moton (like gold)

Taking chances but missing glances
at the window of promises
but now I’m tired of missing those chances
now I’m tired and you calm me down, while I feel the bark
beneath my fingertips
gazing out at the shimmer
the glimmer

Liquid blue
The streaming glows in the sky
But while I watch my words catch in my throat I stand
sheltered from it all
Beneath the dripping leaves.
