Lyrics

Wise men say 'it looks like rain today'
It crackled on the speakers
And trickled down the sleepy subway trains
For heavy eyes could hardly hold us
Aching legs that often told us it's all worth it
We all fall in love sometimes

The full moon's bright
And starlight filled the evening
We wrote it and I played it
Something happened - it's so strange this feeling
Naive notions that were childish
Simple tunes that tried to hide it, but when it comes
We all fall in love sometimes

Did we, didn't we, should we, couldn't we
I'm not sure 'cause sometimes we're so blind
Struggling to the day when even your best friend says, "Don't you find
We all fall in love sometimes?"
And only passing time
Could kill the boredom we acquire
Running with the losers for a while
But our Empty Sky was filled with laughter
Just before the flood - painting worried faces with a Wise men say 'it looks like rain today'
It crackled on the speakers
And trickled down the sleepy subway trains
For heavy eyes could hardly hold us
Aching legs that often told us it's all worth it
We all fall in love sometimes
We all fall in love sometimes

I used to know this old scarecrow
He was my song, my joy and sorrow
Cast alone between the furrows
Of a field no longer sown by anyone
I held a dandelion that said the time had come
To leave upon the wind
not to return
When summer burned the earth again
Oh...
Cultivate the freshest flower this garden ever grew
Beneath these branches I once wrote such childish words for you
But that's okay - there's treasure children always seek to find
And just like us you must have had
a once upon a time
Oh...
Oh...
Oh...
Oh...
Oh...
Oh...
(Oh...) Lonely, lovely lady...
