I WISH IT WOULD RAIN (I) (Barrett Strong, Roger Penzabene & Norman Whitfield)
Sunshine, blue skies please go away,
Mmy girl has found another and gone away
With her went my future, my life is filled 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.
(Oh how I wish it would rain.) Oh yeah yeah yeah.
Oh so badly I want to go outside
But everyone knows that a man ain't supposed to cry,
Listen I've gotta cry cause crying sends the pain oh yeah.
Given this hurt I feel inside, words could never explain,
I just wish it would rain!
Let it rain! Rain rain rain! Let it rain! Oh yeah, let it rain!
Day in day out my tear-stained face
Pressed against the window pane,
My eyes search the skies desperately for rain
Cause raindrops will hide my teardrops
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 (oh how I wish that it would rain).
Let it rain! Let it rain! Just disguise the tears in my eyes.
Let it rain! Let it rain!
