Hazel takes the long way 'round
avoiding any crowd
Today she wears the plastic crown
for things she never says aloud

"And it looks like rain again
It looks like rain again"

But it's nothing like you wanted it to be
Everybody's had their chances to be free
"Don't hold out for me"

The mother left so long ago
before the child had grown
Now she looks through ancient school yearbooks
for faces that recall her own

"And it looks like rain again
It looks like rain again"

But it's nothing like you wanted it to be
Everybody's had their chances to be free
"Don't hold out for me"

All the fears unspoken
All the years she's broken
In a painful sky
she flies

We all take the long way 'round
'Til we become the crowd
We mistake the homes we found
for places where we're not allowed

"And it looks like rain again
It looks like rain again"

But it's nothing like you wanted it to be
Everbody's had their chances to be free
"Don't hold out for me"

"Out for me"
"Out for me"
"Out for me"
