May blue skies, now June black
And my shirt clings to my back
Sweat sitting here with window wide
Behind insect screen, trapped inside
There's just too much rain

I know the fields need rain
But what's that to me in my 2DK
The kids get restless, this oppressive wet air
Can't ride their bikes or go exploring somewhere
And they're too young to understand why you're not here


The scream of cicadas and rice field frogs
Three weeks it's been cats and dogs
But the deluge can't match my lonely tears
So I sit here remembering this time every year
Too much, too much, too much, too much rain
