Oh if only the rains came when I cried


Oh if only the rains came when I cried
Then I wouldn’t have to disguise
These tangled-up knots inside me
When; I uncontrollably, cry.

Oh if only the rains came when I cried
Then I wouldn’t have to lie
Each time I’m a choking…
Uncontrollably deep; down in my heart.

Oh if only the rains came when I cried
Then I wouldn’t have to pretend
I’ve got a blockage lump in my throat that isn’t for you.
Oh if only the rains came when I cried…

Oh if only the rains came when I cried
Each time I’m in this sunny dark clime
In my heart oh if only the lingering tide
Reaching out to touch the shore by your side

Would leave me alone
And find somewhere else to reside
Oh if only I could behave like a cave man
Going hungry and lonely and take
Whatever would please me?

But I guess all I can do
Is howl upwards from the ground for you!
When I get up out of bed
Oh if only the rains came when I cried.
