Let me start at the end, after the dust had risen
When truth ripped through the sky
The troops marching, I saw lightning
And it brought out your smile
Remember that night, When you said goodbye
You thought it was the only way
How could you know, through life I’d go
Singing the blues in a permanent Rain
How many died, fighting for what they thought was right?
I thought I was the only one
Put my heart in the ground, put your guns down
And step into the sun
The fortune I’ve seen, I can’t take any of it with me
For the debts I have to pay
So long my love, I hope I’m the one your thinking of
When you feel the permanent rain
So lets begin, now that you know the end
To the path that I strayed
The dust hadn’t risen, the leaves were falling
So begins the permanent rain.
