Lyrics

(I'm just trying to get out of the rain)
(I'm just trying to get out of the rain)
(I'm just trying to get out of the rain)

In the garden I forget who I am
There are daffodils and the motorway's jammed
And my love for you is so new
But the weather's wrong
I'm doing nothing, really not much at all
Just predictable things
Watching leaves as they fall
In the springtime in my flat
Satellites send pictures through the night
The moon is hot, I can't do anything

And I watch Voyager flying blind
Through unimaginable space and time
Endlessly on TV

I'm alone again and the Watchman is on
In a feature film I hear a beautiful song
These days I cry a lot, perhaps I try
I don't know why
I've got a newspaper, I've read it all through
The world is strange today, all the news is so good
And my hair has got so blond
As I stare at my reflections in the pond
And the trees have died
And I go inside

And I watch Voyager flying blind
Through unimaginable space and time
Endlessly

(I'm just trying to get out of the rain)

Hold me love I cannot catch my breath
This fear of love is choking me to death
I can't live without you I can't live with you
I wriggle and I turn
Tell me when will I ever learn?

When the wind blows
On the stems of the flowers
I feel sorry for them
And I fetch them indoors
And my love for you is so new
And there's so much left to do
But there are thunderstorms
And the weather's wrong

(I'm just trying to get out of the rain)
(I'm just trying to get out of the rain)

Can't live without you, I can't live with you
I wriggle and I turn
(I'm just trying to get out of the rain)
I can't live without you, I can't live with you
When will I ever learn?

I can't live without you I can't live with you
I wriggle and I turn
Tell me when will I ever learn?
