I look out to the sky
The raindrops make it look like the window's crying
I close my eyes
I imagine a rainbow
I open my eyes but the window still cries
I want to change the weather
I want to go out and play
I look out at the sky
It's like a gray sheet of paper covering the sky
I open the door and go outside
A raindrop lands on me
But I cannot speak
Because I seek a bright rainbow
All over me
I laugh and I smile
Cause I'm covered in colors
The colors feel nice and silky
I look up
The sky looks like a sheet of blue ice
It's clear with no cloud in sight
The color fades away
But it's still inside of me
'til this very day
