Portland Rain - Everclear

I stand out breaking in the Portland rain
I see the end there in your eyes
As I watch you drive away

I walk back blind in'to my cold dreamhouse
And I think about the damage
I put the big light out

I sit down smoking on my basemen't floor
I hear footsteps up above me
They are right outside my fron't door

The only place
That I wan't to be
Is watching you move
Up on top of me

The only sound
That I wan't to hear
Is the rain against my window
As you whisper in my ear

Baby
You know I love it when you call me baby
Baby

I go upstairs and find my twelve year old
She's got tears running down her face
Sitting sad at my piano

She sings soft words from that old beatles song
And I think about my yesterday
And all the things I did wrong

The only place
That I wan't to be
Is watching you sweet dream
In bed right next to me

The only sound
That I wan't to hear
Is the rain against my window
As I pull you near

Don't give up on me
Baby can't you you see
We could make this be
The way it used to be

Don't give up on me
I wish I could make you see
That I am changing everyday
Trying to build a better me

We could make this be
The way it's supposed to be

Don't give up on me

I stand out in the rain
Where I watched you drive away
I never thought I would live to see
This f_cked up day

I stand out in the rain
In the middle of the night
I wish that it
Could wash away
The beast inside

The only thing
I wan't to do
Is kiss you
When I am coming deep inside of you

The only sound
That I wan't to hear
Is the rain against my window
As I hold you

Don't give up on me
Baby can't you see
We could make this be
The way it used to be

Don't give up on me
I wish I could make you see
That I am changing everyday
Trying to build a better me

We could make this be
The way it's supposed to be

Don't give up on me

Don't give up on me

Don't give up on me

Don't give up on me
