Flood Warning: Rain in Paris. (3 of 6)

A beautiful fog rested on the City yesterday and I found myself listening to some rainy day tunes. More basically put, I listened to some songs that had the word rain in them. Quite simple(ton-ish) of me.

Soko is supposedly “dead” but my appreciation for her music lives on. This song is from her short but sweet 2007 EP Not Sokute. In January of 2009 she announced her departure from music. “Despite having recorded a double album in Seattle, she is not willing to release it.” I’m glad to hear that she has since then returned to music.

It’s raining outside
I’m crying inside
It’s raining outside
I’m crying inside

5 a.m in the dark
You’re like a cold fish with me
You’re sleeping I’m thinking
You’re turning your back to me
Here in my bed you’re miles away from me
Here in my head you’re never close to me

It’s raining outside
I’m crying out loud
It’s raining outside
I’m crying out loud
I run away by foot

Lost in the empty street
You were supposed to follow me
But you are too proud too do it
Here in my bed you’re miles away from me
Here in my head you’re never close to me
Come on… don’t be mad I told you I need you
Come on… don’t be sad I’m still in love with you

It’s raining outside
may I come inside?
It’s raining outside
may I come inside?

It’s my fault, I’m sorry
that we have this fight
I apologize, would you hug me tonight?
Here in my bed you’re miles away from me
Here in my head you’re never close to me
Come on, don’t be mad, I told you I need you
Come on, don’t be sad, I’m still in love with you
