I bring rain wherever I go.
Whether it’s it or me holding on,
I do not know;
I only know I can’t let go.
I ask around, “What can I do?”
“Release, that’s all you have to do.”
But I cannot;
It’s all I’m unwilling to do.
This storm has been with me for so long,
I don’t believe I could last long
Without its drops.
It’s the only one that stays long.
Oh set me free, I do hate you,
The way that I rely on you.
But you are here
And no one wants to replace you.
