There is a song ringing in my ear
That I cannot make out
Someone’s been singing to me for ages dear
Some song I remember, but I never can hear

There is a beat that my heart is keeping
Like a drum in the distance
It sounds like a dream
That I want to remember
Or a pain that I know well
From a wound that will not heal

And my ears keep straining to hear
Just one tear, when it’s raining on me.

Can you feel the air in the distance
From across the cold ocean
Comes the scent of a flower
There is a beauty, unlike another
And it’s far and it’s near now
Both gone and inside you still

And your ears keep straining to hear
Just one tear, when it’s raining on you


from The Hard Rains, released December 29, 2011
