it's raining outside
better put your hat on
you're gonna need a coat
not a metaphor

this evening is cold
it's still early but it's dark
you feel the damp in your bones
Is that a chill in your heart

what have I got to hide
is this just wordplay that I use
have i got something to confide
or am I just trying to confuse

you hear the sound of footsteps
is there a mystery ahead
your collar is damp
is it time that you fled

what have I got to hide
is this wordplay that I use
have I got something to confide
or am I just trying to confuse

it's raining outside
better put your hat on
you're gonna need a coat
not a metaphor
