The Raindrops' Song

On my glass windowpane
The raindrops only patter
Now it is all only noise
The symphony has been lost

The tune has long gone
The notes only chatter
Gone with the smoke

The song has vapourised
Some say it is ethereal
Some say it is most abused
Love is only a delusion
No one has ever seen

I had held it in my fingers
Had savoured it in my mouth
Had heard it whispered in my ear 
When he spoke to me in the night

In the twinkle of those eyes
In the corners of that smile
In the throbbing heartbeat
When I knotted the neck-tie

But back then I had also heard
The symphony, the music
The song of the falling raindrops
On my glass windowpane
