Go away, you rainy day
repeat x4

Verse 1:
why won't you go away? I threw out everything I wrote today
and I can't find my love, how long is it supposed to take?
I know it's late but I hoped she'd stay
though she won't be with me when we're old and grey
it's not even another man, she just has other plans
I know she sees what we could be, but I understand
she'd want to include me, wish she was sure, but she's not absolutely
still can't keep my eyes off of her beauty
because it's life that's in the eyes of the beholder
she squeezes tight, her thighs are like a boa and her bite is like a cobra
every night we're getting closer, but she'll be crying on my shoulder
the day that she's dying from pneumonia
realize that if we're older and we're still apart
I'll feel like an organ donor, after I give her my heart
feeling dark I had hope, though the rain might drown it
I'd rather have one taste of her lips than life without it

it's the rain...

Go away, you rainy day
repeat x4

Verse 2:
I need some inspiration but my well is dry
the rain doesn't help I tried to write down what I felt inside
no matter how well I hide it I can't tell a lie
I keep hearing a lullaby like la la la la la
she's in my head and I keep thinking about her
from staring at the ceiling in my bed to the warmth of the shower
as water drips downward let me consult with a flower
how many petals can be torn and fall to the floor in an hour?
enough to fall asleep, on a bed of roses
'cause if death is close as she thinks it is, then it's hopeless
but would she ever notice what life could be
even I'm unsure how much I have left to breathe
I'll let her catch her breath since she's dealing with asthma
and she's still enjoying her freedom from past love
if she could read my thoughts, she'd have a different frame of mind
'cause I'd be by her side no matter rain or shine

Go away, you rainy day
repeat x4

Verse 3:
one time I just want the sunshine
to allow me to clear my mind and unwind
focus my thoughts
so when I know that I'm lost
I'll notice the blues
and I won't be confused
if you knew her like I knew her
maybe you could grasp why I don't want to lose her and our possible future
people telling me I have my whole life to look forward to
but I ignore them and picture growing old with you
I feel like we have a second chance
because the best romance is like watching a piece in Chess advance
taking your time to make up your mind
so if you end up checkmating me, fine
I'm waiting to find someone I wouldn't want to live without
but it's you that I think about
I can't mask the truth
this was supposed to be about lost inspiration but it kept leading back to you

so you're my rainy day

Go away, you rainy day
repeat x4

maybe we forgot
it's the way the rain drops

maybe my judgment is clouded
since these clouds have me surrounded

I said
la la la la la la la la la na na na na na na na na na na...
