It’s finally raining

I was always attracted to failures and cracks
to the odd, to the wild, to mystery
It’s your many quirks that at first seduced me
And now I’ve finally surrendered to your attacks

After 10 years, I’ve had enough of these games,
I’m finally yours, it’s over, you got me
But since I’ve arrived, you’ve behaved differently
I was looking at you today at the corner of St. James’

Then, all of the sudden, it struck me
I had a feeling something wasn’t quite right
But now I knew what: you had been too sunny

Indeed you do not need, my dearest city
To shine blandly from midday to midnight
Your charm resides partly in your impredictability
