Lyrics:
CAN YOU SMELL THE RAIN

He was standing by the road
had a good car and a tidy coat
he's left himself long time ago
won it all - got nowhere to go

on top of the world his lonely soul
can't cry like a wolf
he is what he has sold
tells what he's been told

will you jump with me
over this rail
run to our secret place
You and I can end this masquerade

breathe to a flame, to a naked blade
sharp with life when it’s not been drained
There is nothing I can grasp or claim
I have emptied that old well of blame

She was standing by the road
polished shoes and a broken soul
she'd left herself long time ago
sold her youth - as love to go

ate crumbs of tenderness for show
can't cry like a wolf
she is not what she has sold
fears what she's been told

…over this rail
run to our secret place
you and I can end this masquerade

breathe to a flame, to a naked blade
sharp with life when it’s not been tamed
There is nothing I can grasp or claim
I have emptied that old well of blame

They were standing by the road
his engine hot and eyes just cold
it wasn't late but she felt old
said much more than she could afford

„we’re homeless in our cage of gold“
here we hunt our tails
I search my claws but just find nails
whitewash these chains

the snake in me is tame
will you come with me and smell the rain

They were standing by the road
her eyes were hot, hands ice cold
it wasn't late but he felt old
felt much more than he could afford

hungry prisoner playing kings role
running but cannot catch my soul
I cannot yield
I try to shout
cause real men don't doubt

hungry prisoner playing kings role
captive lion
in a cage of gold

breathe to a flame, to a naked blade
sharp with life when it’s not been tamed
There is nothing I can grasp or claim
I have emptied that old well of blame

the shark in me is tame
will you come with me and smell the rain
