Last time I was here, it was rainin'
It ain't rainin' anymore
The streets were drowned, and the water's waning
All the ruins washed ashore

Now I'm just lookin' through the rubble
Tryin' to find out who we were
Last time I was here, it was rainin'
It ain't rainin' anymore

Last time I was here, you were waitin'
You're not waitin' anymore
The window's broke and the smoke's escapin'
All the books scattered 'cross the floor

And the church bells are ringin' through the sirens
And your coat was full of bullet holes
Last time I was here, you were waitin'
You ain't waitin' anymore

So, may the wind blow
May the moonlight know your name
So, let the needle move the record 'round
Till the walls cave in
And you and I are out there dancin' in the dirty rain

Last time I was here, it was rainin'
Like you ain't never ever seen it rain
And your eyes were filled with terror
And the smoke from the gasoline

As the stars exploded with gunfire
I saw you smilin' just before
Last time I was here, you were cryin'
You're not cryin' anymore

So, may the wind blow
May the moonlight know your name
So, let the needle move the record 'round
Till the walls cave in
And you and I are out there dancin' in the dirty rain

Mmm, the dirty rain
In the dirty rain
