I saw Yesterday with another lover,
And Today said she was jealous.
I saw Tomorrow giving away her roses on the corner,
And Next Year was sleeping on a bench.
The rain was falling and
My heart was sinking so
I took a quick dive down to the flooded streets,
To join the bums and the dirty people.
Silence was waiting for me at home, and
Stillness spent the night.
Hearts are heavy when in pain, and
Heavier still when left alone in the dark.
And it is only because I walk alone at night in the rain,
That I can speak of these things.
