Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.2

Untouchable through the rain

Some deep tragic emotion

All the sadness you have ever known

All the unrequited love, from sweethearts to your mother

At the dawn of time

When your heart was originally broken

When your heart was broken for the first time

When the sadness was first let in to mar the sunshine
