Linton Kwesi Johnson - Loraine


-- αφιερωμένο --



Whenever it rains I think of you
And I always remember that day in May
When I saw you walking in the rain
I know not what it was nor why
For ususally I'm quite shy
I ax'd your name, you smile and said Lorraine
I ax'd if I could share your umbrella
You smiled and said what a cheeky little fella

Now I'm standin' in the rain in vain, Loraine
Hoping to see you again
Tears fall from me eyes like rain, Loraine
A terrible pain in me brain, Loraine
You're drivin' me insane

Whenever it rains I think of you
And I always remember that day in May
When I saw you walking in the rain
I know not what it was nor why
For ususally I'm quite shy
but from the moment I saw you
I knew, that I needed you in my life
from that moment on I knew
that I wanted you for my wife

Now I'm standin' in the rain in vain, Loraine
Hoping to see you again
Tears fall from me eyes like rain, Loraine
A terrible pain in me brain, Loraine
You're drivin' me insane

Whenever it rains I think of you
And I always remember that day in May
When I saw you walking in the rain
I know not what it was nor why
For ususally I'm quite shy
I said let's go back to my place for some coffee
You frown and said well, kiss me batty
I fell so ashamed, I did not even notice
When your bus came, and went again

Now I'm standin' in the rain in vain, Loraine
Hoping to see you again
Tears fall from me eyes like rain, Loraine
A terrible pain in me brain, Loraine
You're drivin' me insane, Loraine, Loraine, Loraine
