Lyrics[]

There was rain, there was wind
There was spring coming in
There was a feeling of approaching doom
And I was happy to see you
It was cold in your room and you were warm and that's all I remember
And your arms were warm and that's all I remember

Later on near morning
We were talking about nothing
A little rain, a little wind
Quiet cold, cold air coming in
And you were warm and that's all I remember
And your arms were warm and that's all I remember
And your eyes were pretty and that's all I remember
And your hands were soft and that's all I remember
And the hall was well-lit as I walked down it and that's all I remember
And the rain was light and it felt soft on my face and that's all I remember
And the car was quiet inside and that's all I remember
And it was dark but the sunlight was coming and that's all I remember
