she says its cold outside and hands me her raincoat 
she always worried about thing like that 
she says it's all gonna end and it might as well be my fault
         D                      C 
and she only sleeps while it's raining 
and she screams and her voice is straining 

           G      D, C
she says baby 
       D             G            D, C, D

when she says baby 
             D                         C
well i cant help but be scared of it all sometimes 
says the rain's gonna wash away i believe it 

(2nd Verse) 

she's got a little bit of something, god its better than nothing 
and in her color portrait world she belives she's got it all 
she swears the moon don't hang quite as high as it used to 
and she only sleeps when it's raining 
and she screams and her voice is straining 


(3rd Verse) 
she believes that life is made up of all that you're used to 
and the clock on the wall has been stuck at three for days 
she thinks that happiness as mat that sits on her doorway 
but outside it starts raining
