Harry Chapin It Seems You Only Love Me When It Rains Lyrics

Last updated:

Just after I screamed at you--
What the hell is it all about
You spilled your coffee
Onto my sleeve
And you said
Don't expect the tears
To come from me babe
For I've already grieved

But that's when you let me
Back into your dream

And I know you're frightened
By my laughter
But you're not afraid
To hold my pain
You see I'm never sure
Just what you're after, Babe
But it seems you only love me
When it rains

You never treat me
Like you treat a gentle man
You only hit me
When you know it hurts
But then why bother reaching down
To where I'm battered
To raise me up
>From the dirt

But that's when you let me
Back into your dream

And I know you're frightened
By my laughter
But you're not afraid
To hold my pain
You see I'm never sure
Just what you're after, Babe
But it seems you only love me
When it rains

Yes I have sworn
To myself to stay protected
So I have strapped on
A sword and shield
But my armour
Yes it ends up meltin'
When you come along tumblin'
Across the field
Once again I yield, I yield

Yes you get me crazy
'Cause you never even wear my presents babe
You wear flowers tucked into your hair
But when I'm cursin' in the night
In my frustration
That's when suddenly you are there

Once again that's when you let me
Back into your dream

And I know you're frightened
By my laughter
But you're not afraid
To hold my pain
You see I'm never sure
Just what you're after, Babe
But it seems you only love me
When it rains

How come you only love me when it rains
