Let us ride the waves of misery
but away, away from the blight,
allow us to shine with the knowledge of
as we approach each other in the dead of night.
And let us have that embrace
which has been awaiting us for oh so many years,
let me feel that heartbeat of yours
and detract from all my old fears.
Please let me wash away the hurt
that I feel within my soul,
let it rain, let it rain,
and rinse away the suffering,
let the pain fade away,
it shall dissipate,
let it go.
