Lyrics 

Hello

Can you hear me?

Am I getting through to you?

Hello

Is it late there?

Is there laughter on the line?

Are you sure you’re there alone?

‘Cause I’m

Trying to explain

Something’s wrong

You just don’t sound the same

Why don’t you

Why don’t you

Go outside

Go outside

Kiss the rain

Whenever you need me

Kiss the rain

Whenever I’m gone too long

If your lips feel lonely and thirsty

Kiss the rain

And wait for the dawn

Keep in mind

We’re under the same sky

And the night’s

As empty for me as for you

If you feel

You can’t wait ’til morning

Kiss the rain

Kiss the rain

Kiss the rain

Hello

Do you miss me?

I hear you say you do

But not the way I’m missing you

What’s new?

How’s the weather?

Is it stormy where you are?

You sound so close but it feels like you’re so far

Oh, would it mean anything

If you knew

What I’m left imagining

In my mind

In my mind

Would you go

Would you go

Kiss the rain

As you fall

Over me

Think of me

Think of me

Think of me

Only me

Kiss the rain

Whenever you need me

Kiss the rain

Whenever I’m gone too long

If your lips

Feel hungry and tempted

Kiss the rain

And wait for the dawn

Keep in mind

We’re under the same sky

And the night’s

As empty for me as for you

If you feel you can’t wait ’til morning

Kiss the rain

Kiss the rain

Kiss the rain

Kiss the rain

Hello

Can you hear me?

Can you hear me?

Can you hear me?
