Raining in Kyoto
It's flooding the streets
I'm nursing a coffee from a vending machine
I saw the god of rice, a fox with a key, key
I woke up blind with a headache
Grinding my teeth
Confused and alone and taking pills to sleep
They soften your absence but they don't let me dream

Raining in Kyoto
My breath turns into steam
I'll buy you a candle, not even sure what it means
I'm cursed to the matches
I'm drowning my grief, grief
An old man stood close by, smiled at me
I rang the bell like he did
I told you I'm sorry
A makeshift funeral, I tried to set you free

You're half asleep
And I bought you a radio to drown out the machines
Hospital light, you asked about the way you wish that they'd let you outside

Raining in Kyoto
I'm starting to shake
They'll hold a service tomorrow
I'm an ocean away
Reach into my pocket, found a small paper crane
It's been over a year now
April turns into May
I barely stopped moving, I've been so fucking afraid
Too much of a coward to even visit your grave

You're half awake
And I bought you a radio to play the blues away
With my hand to hold, you asked about the way you wish that they'd let you die at home

You're half awake
And I bought you a radio to play the blues away
Hospital light, you asked about the way you wish that they'd let you outside

Goodnight
Goodnight
Goodbye
