We Can't Build A Fire In The Rain

With these few words I'll leave behind
You'll never know what I feel inside
This letter wasn't meant unkind
But I can never stand to see you cry

It's written in the stars somewhere
That we were never meant to be together
We neither one to blame
Heaven knows how hard we tried
But we can't build a fire in the rain

There was a time our love was strong
But then one day it crumbled out of sight
We tried to put the pieces back together
But we never got it right

We're drinking from an empty cup
Just going through the motions and pretending
We have something left to gain
And though we didn't drink our fill
We can't build a fire in the rain

We came together with a promise
We would never let each other be alone again
But lately we've been more alone together
Than our lonely days have ever been

That midnight whistle's blowing
And it's time that I'd be heading down the road
The pain inside is growing
The time will someday bear its heavy load

It's raining hard as I have known
And though it's hard to face alone
It's a simple price for two lives lived in vain
The sun is shining bright somewhere
But we can't build a fire in the rain
The sun is shining bright somewhere
But we can't build a fire in the rain
