There was darkness and there was rain.
The rain swallowed everything that mattered,
You, me and the city;
and the darkness made everything blind
except the thunder.
The thunder that roared,
blazing through the city
and our hearts. Our hearts that were
drowning in the rain, and us.
The city that was painted red and white
the city that was filled with faces colored,
Drums that hammered through the rowdy roads
and hearts that danced evermore,
The parades of dolls, the chanting songs,
the lovers that kissed, the smiles that were once lost,
All were calm now,
except the rain and everything that mattered;
The tale of you, me and the city.
