Hmm yeah
The girl has found another and gone away
So day after day I stay locked up in my room

But everyone knows that a man ain't supposed to cry
Oh yeah, people this hurt I feel inside

Day in day out my tear-stained face
My eyes search the skies desperately for rain
And no one will ever know that I'm crying
To the world outside my tears
Ooh, baby
I need rain to disguise the tears in my eyes
Oh yeah, yeah, listen
'Til it rains I'm gonna stay inside and let it rain
