That’s What I Like About the Rain

I don’t believe in silver linings
I just believe in clouds
I never pray for a sunny day at all
If I have to be the one here weeping
Don’t want the world to smile
That’s why I hope a little rain’s about to fall
Fall upon my garden wall
And all of the children down the lane
Soaks us through, both me and you
And so kind of circulates the pain
That’s what I like about the rain
I don’t believe in happy endings
I don’t believe in love
I never dared let my soul be bared before
It’s as if you shot a dream into me
And now the dream is gone
So button up, because I think it’s gonna pour
Pour upon my garden wall
And all of the children down the lane
Soaks us through, both me and you
And so kind of circulates the pain
That’s what I like about the rain
(Let it) come again some other day
And wash the world away
That’s why I hope a little rain’s about to fall
Fall upon the things we’ve done
Till none of the memories remain
Let it fade the mess we made
And send it all swirling down the drain
That’s what I like about the rain
Till none of the memories remain
That’s what I like about the rain
