Lyrics

The echo stains the runaway-(words and music-B.Kirk)
There’s a rain on a rose parade a sad boy
Wipes his smile away
And feels betrayed
That boy’s no older now
Yet somehow
There’s a deeper voice that speaks a little afraid

The rain alone won’t wash it away
And staying here won’t keep you out of harm’s way
Every lost child has a place
The echo stains the runaway

He begins alone erased from this place
The echo stays the runaway
When it begins to rain he prays to have joy
It’s just a smile away
He feels betrayed
Chorus
There’s a rain on a rose parade a sad boy
Wipes his smile away
And feels betrayed
To begin to know yourself without help
From a weaker place
Are the unremoveable stains on a beautiful face

And the rain alone won’t wash them away
And staying here won’t keep you out of harm’s way
Every lost child has a place
The echo stays the runaway
