Lyrics
The sky was cold, I felt so gray
You kissed me and you walked away
in the rain
It's over now, you said to me
I closed my eyes and set you free
from the pain
CHORUS
A single rose you left to me
touched with dew, it could never be
like the special love we shared,
Still you didn't care

Empty pockets, empty hands
you shot holes in all our plans
so easily
All the past times, good and bad
all the times we could have had --Why?
CHORUS
BRIDGE
Still you didn't care
'bout all the dreams and all the schemes we shared
still you didn't care
we had it all, you let it fall
in the air,
in the air,
in the air --

The sky was cold, I felt so gray,
you kissed me and you walked away
in the rain
It's over now, you said to me
I closed my eyes and set you free
from the pain

CHORUS
