Rain in Chicago (Song Fu 6 Round 1)

Work in progress lyrics.

Rain in Chicago
——————

you got us tickets to a show on the Loop
you dyed your hair pink, I wore a new leather jacket
wasn’t weather-proofed

you’d think I know better…

showed up an hour early to try to catch a glimpse of the band
some guy tried to pick you up, I kissed your cheek
I took your hand

it was a pretty good scam…

and the band played indie rock to the strains
of an infant thunder storm
for a couple of sets, we could both forget
how the city was ragged and worn
when lightning fell from the skies
it made your eyes the brightest blue
do you remember the rain in Chicago like I do?
do you remember the rain in Chicago like I do?

around 1:30 the last of us got pushed out the door
Downed the last of my drink, ventured out
into the torrential downpour

you couldn’t see to hail a cab…

you said “I think you’re asleep on your feet
and my apartment’s not far away.
on the condition that you’t keep me awake
I guess that you could stay”

and the planes got grounded at O’Hare
Some people could not fly home
it was dark and quiet on your couch
but I didn’t feel alone
My ruined jacket was my only blanket
I left the rest for you
do you remember the rain in Chicago like I do?
do you remember the rain in Chicago like I do?
