What good is that happy lie
All you wanted from the start was to cry

It looks like another fall
Your good friends they don't seem to help at all
When you're feeling kind of cold and small
Just look up your rainy day man

It does you no good to pretend child
You've made a hole much too big to mend
And it looks like you lose again, my friend
Call on your rainy day man

Now rainy day man he don't like sunshine
He don't chase rainbows
