Always A Storm

A little past eleven
And you haven't come home yet
It's raining
I lay there in our bed
Hearing the clock
Take out the batteries so it stops
Wished I could repeat it with you near
Try to stop my brain from the tracks it's on
Moving faster than our months
Slower than our mouths
It doesn't relent outside
Lending fear to my ears
That you won't be back
That when you said it would be
The last time the rain
Made sure you meant it
