From the recording The Life That We Once Knew
Without a sound she grabbed the children,
and slipped outside in the pouring rain.
She knows that this must be the last time,
her family feels this kind of pain.
She’s tried so many times before tonight,
but he won’t change.
Every crash of thunder’s like the breaking of her heart,
As the love she used to feel is washed away.
The vows they took were swept away like
dead leaves in the wind, she can’t stay.
He reaches out and tries to hold her,
and sees she hasn’t been to bed.
He thinks he sees her in the next room,
but everything’s so foggy in his head.
He reads the letter lying on the floor,
through eyes of red.
But up ahead the sun is shining,
on the kind of life she’s really never known.
But in her mind the storm just goes on raging, the rain keeps pouring.
