  • Sunshine blue skies please go away
    The girl has found another and gone away.
    With her went my future my life is filled with gloom
    So day after day I stay locked up in my room.
    I know to you, it might sound strange but I wish it would rain,

    'Cause so badly I wanna go outside
    But everyone knows that a man ain't supposed to cry
    Listen, I gotta cry 'cause crying eases the pain,
    Oh yeah, people this hurt I feel inside.
    Words could never explain, I just wish it would rain.

    Day in day out my tear-stained face
    Pressed against the window pain,
    My eyes search the skies desperately for rain,
    Cause rain-drops will hide my tear -drops
    And no one will ever know that I'm crying,
    Crying when I go outside.
    To the world outside my tears,
    I refuse to explain, oh I wish it would rain,
    Let it rain, let it rain.
    I need rain to disguise the tears in my eyes.
    Oh, let it rain.
    I'm a man and I got my pride
    Til' it rains I'm gonna stay inside and let it rain.
