Soho Rain

Soho Rain

She stands on the corner of the alleyway
The last place to preserve the dream
Memories of the people that she once ripped off
The wallets pulled apart at the seams
Memories of danger in a clouded haze
But a home her heart would always remain in
The last strains of neon that once lit her pain
Reflected in the Soho rain now
Reflected in the Soho rain

The afternoons on Brewer Street, the coffee and pills
The punters given useless keys
The money mounted up to be dissolved on the fix
From the dealers on Archer Street
Cooled off in the casino then the exchange store
Soaking up the pop culture this dream world spawned
A squalid peace stilled her hazy mind as her heels crossed the drains
Bathing in the Soho rain now
Bathing in the Soho rain

The humid air
Encapsulates the magic and the dream
The rain in her hair
She’ll never lose her strength after all she’s seen

She casts her eye around the corner onto Walkers Court
Where the lights of the Revue Bar had shone
Memories of the gangs who protected her life
The strip bars that have come and gone
The neon lights still linger in her eyes
Friendly ghosts of addictions long overcome
Serene celebration of the strength she’s gained
Her tears mixed with the Soho rain now
Her tears mixed with the Soho rain

The humid air
Encapsulates the magic and the dream
The rain in her hair
She’ll never lose her strength after all she’s…
The humid air
Encapsulates the magic and the dream
The rain in her hair
She’ll never lose her strength after all she’s seen

Dreaming of the Soho rain now
Dreaming of the Soho rain
Bathing in the Soho rain now
Bathing in the Soho rain
