G               C/G            G
    I hear the drizzle of the rain,
Am       Cmaj7/G  C  C/B  D
    Like a memo - ry  it falls,

[Verse 2]
G                 C/G           G
    And from the shelter of my mind,
Am              Cmaj7/G  C   C/B  D
    Through the window   of  my  eyes,
   G            Bm/F#     G    C/A  G/B    C
I  ...gaze be - yond the rain dren -ched streets,

G                     C/G               G
    My mind's dis - tracted, and dif - fused,
Am                 Cmaj7/G  C   C/B  D
    My thoughts are many   miles a - way,
      G      Bm/F#         G   C/A G/B  C
They lie with you,  when you're a  - sleep,
     Am       Em        D
And kiss you when you------...

[Verse 4]
       G         C/G                   G
And a song I was writing is left un - done,
Am             Cmaj7/G      C   C/B  D
    I don't know why I  ...spent my time,
G           Bm/F#    G   C/A  G/B    C
    Writing songs I   ...can't be - lieve,
      Am        Em

[Verse 5]
G              C/G                    G
    And so you see I have ...come to doubt,
Am         Cmaj7/G   C   C/B  D
    All that I once held as true,
   G           Bm/F#   G    C/A  G/B   C
I  ...stand a - lone, with - out be - liefs,

    The only truth I know is ...you-------------!

[Verse 6]
G              C/G                     G
     And as I   ...watch the drops of rain,
Am             Cmaj7/G  C    C/B  D
    Weave their weary paths, and die,
   G          Bm/F#   G  C/A  G/B  C
I ....know that I am like  ...the rain,
Am             Em                D
    There, but for the grace of you,
   G  C/G   G C/G
Go I-------------!
