Why Does It Rain

It must be six months since when we first met
And I don’t like to admit it but it was better when I hid it
The love was great but it didn’t take too long
Before I wasn’t strong and it all went wrong

So I had a few to relax
And I went down by the tracks
To a darker place inside
But I was open wide, thinking

Why does it rain every time I touch you
Every time I think I found exactly what I need
Tell me why do I cry every night when I am without you
And loneliness is all that I can feel

But when the sun shines down and you’re still not around
The thing I miss the most I can’t explain
Baby, why does it rain

Well I drank myself to sleep every night for a week
When I didn’t hear from you, oh Lord I wanted to
And the whiskey spoke your name and it sang about the pain
Of wondering where you are and if you still care

Then I had a few to relax
And took a walk ‘cross the tracks
To a darker place inside
But I was open wide, saying

Why does it rain every time I touch you
Every time I think I found exactly what I need
Tell me why do I cry every night when I am without you
And loneliness is all that I can feel

But when the sun shines down and you’re still not around
The thing I miss the most I can’t explain
Baby, why does it rain

And it won’t stop raining
Your heart remaining
Between such self-defense and self-defeat

So you call your lover
And then you discover
A thousand little cracks in the concrete
