with my own hands              when I make
            love to your    memory
its not the same               I miss the
          thunder   I miss the rain

and the fact that you don't understand
casts a shadow over this land
* but the sun still shines from behind it


[third line of intro x 3, then 4th line of intro]


3.
thanks all the same          but I cant
              bring myself to answer your letters
its not your  fault            but your
             honesty touches me like a fire


the polaroids that hold us together
 must surely fade away
like the love that we spoke of forever on saint swithins day


[outro]:
[intro lines, then end on a C]
