Handsome King Cloud, your longing so obscene
A heavy-hearted ring of colours I've seen
What's a liar got to do with me?

You stupid little thundercloud
How could I have brought you down?
I hope, I hope you wouldn't bring it on yourself?
I hope you don't

She is a beautiful bow
So reflective, so alone
She could use a clever, cunning cloud like you
To build her up a home

Oh mammoth cloud of misery,
Sever your tethers and make me believe
That she's got some incessant longing to leave
She couldn't go away, you'd rain for days

Don't let no cloud take her away
Even stars have fate
I heard she'd gone away
She was a wretched, little, scheming thing

How could you have known a thing like that?
She was never so bright, now, thinking back
Boy, you rain all day
