scent of rain
unknown

the wind tears tears from the sky
 1
passing shadows all drip by
 2
you drop a step from the damp train
 3
and spend a wry smile on me
 4
oh how i love that scent after the rain
 5
i've never loved you like that
 6
 
 
i don't know if i can wait
 7
for the rain that would wake
 8
a new scent in us as we ruin our soles
 9
in the puddles of different worlds
 10
you only got time for the mirrors below
 11
and i fail to recall the colour of your eyes
 12
 
 
the grey still climbs from the rafters
 13
and the sky reflects just the lanterns
 14
you draw a gaze back to from where we came
 15
like we'd left a visible trace
 16
admiring the glow of the rear lights
 17
stumble and graze your knee equally red
 18
 
 
as i hold out my hand a smile again
 19
escapes in full bloom from your lips
 20
invading my eyes like pepperspray
 21
and i think that before
 22
i've never loved you like that
 23
you have the scent of our rain
