Last time I was here, it was rainin'
It ain't raining anymore
The streets were drowned, and the water's waning
All the runes washed to shore
Now I'm here lookin' through the rubble
Tryin' to find out who we were
Last time I was here, it was rainin'
Ain't rainin' anymore

Last time I was here, you were waitin'
You're not waitin' anymore
The window's broke and the smoke's escapin'
The books scattered across the floor
And the church bells are ringin' through the sirens
And your coat was full of bullet holes
Last time I was here, you were waitin'
You're not waitin' anymore

So, may the wind blow, may the moonlight know your name
So, let the needle move the record 'round
'Til the walls cave in 
And you and I are out there dancin' in the dirty rain

Last time I was here, it was rainin'
Like you've never seen it rain
And your eyes were filled with 
Terror and smoke from the gasoline
As the stars exploded with gunfire
I saw you smilin' just before
Last night I was here, you were cryin'
You ain't cryin' anymore

So, may the wind blow, may the moonlight know your name
So, let the needle move the record 'round
'Til the walls cave in and you and I are out there 
Dancin' in the dirty rain

Ooh in the dirty rain
Mmm in the dirty rain
In the dirty rain
