October Rain

It was in the fall / when we ran away / leaving everyone behind
Calling no one / writing no one / leaving no trace / what did they know?
What did they care? /  go start the car /  deep in our love / deep in our fears / there's no going back
Standing alone in the October rain / cold and determined / angry and hurting
I feel the sorrow / I feel the rain / but I can't deny the blood in my veins
Baby on the way / you worked odd jobs / I worked at night / the years went on by
The miles rolled on / and the distance it grew / what would they think? / what would they say?
If they could see you now / pick up the phone / hang up the phone / so many years
Stood at the door / scared and confused / I was sixteen again
Rang the bell once / rang the bell twice / no one was home
Death ain't what's bad / instead it's the rot that comes from inside
Nothing but pain / nothing but hurt / unreconciled
