Lyrics

Just before the rain came down
The sun came out at last
And as for all assumptions made
Questions never asked

I know we’re not where I promised you we’d be by now
But maybe it’s a question of who’d want it anyhow

Even now the rainbows end seems closer to your hand
And is it knowing when to stop the measure of the man
Ok we’re not what I promised you we would become
But maybe it’s a question of how much you’d really want

Have you had enough?
Had enough?
There’s plenty more where that came from now

Are you feeling bought?
Swallowed up?
We got hours on you now

Just before the rain came down
The sun came out at last
And as for all assumptions made
Questions never asked

Ok I’m not what I promised you I would become
I know we’re not what I promised you we’d be by now

Have you had enough?
Had enough?
There’s plenty more where that came from now

You feeling bought?
Swallowed up?
We got hours on you now

You still on top?
Still crawling up?
We got hours on you now
