I remember drawing pictures with chalk out in the street
A work of childhood dreams would blossom at my feet
But then the rain would wash away everything I drew
It was a way of asking me to create something new


You can always go back to the things you did before
The trick is building that into something more
You can keep your past with you every day
But you can’t hold on to what the rain will wash away

We would vacation at the beach and I brought my favorite boat
I made a castle out of sand around which it would float
But then a storm came in and washed it out to sea
Now the ship will float forever as far as the eye can see



Remember when we were lovers, I thought you were my friend
I tried to call you many times but I didn’t hear from you again
I thought I saw your face today staring through the window pane
But I wasn’t really sure, it was covered by the rain
