Just Like That

It's like the rain on the window
Like the wax of the candle
Just like the fading photograph
Beneath those blue fingernails

It's like the tears of a child
Like the crumbs of that cookie
Just like those puppy-dog eyes
Fall to the floor, out of my life

It's like the snow on the ground
Like the petals of a rose
Just like sitting in muddy water
Can't get farther, can't get worse

It's like the glass of a window
Like the falling of the rain
Just like that shattered mirror
Clear and harsh, my life goes
