Whitesnake

Crying in the rain

(Coverdale)

From the album Saints and sinners, 1982, (LBG 30354)


A black cat moans
when he's burning with the fever
a stray dog howls
when he's lonely in the night
a woman goes crazy
with the thought of retribution
but a man starts weeping
when he's sick and tired of life

I keep on dreaming
dreams of tomorrow
feel I'm wasting my time
lightning candles in the wind
always taken my chances
on the promise of the future
but a heart full of sorrow
paints a lonely tapestry

The sun is shining
but it's raining in my heart

No one understands the heartache
no one feels the pain
'cos no one ever sees the tears
when you're crying in the rain
when you're crying in the rain
crying in the rain

I can never deny
all the sweet things I have tasted
though I've been mistreated
I keep coming back for more
I know where I'm going
there's no hope for absolution
I can't seem to separate the good things from the bad

The sun is shining
but it's raining in my heart

No one understands the heartache
no one feels the pain
'cos no one ever sees the tears
when you're crying in the rain

when you're crying in the rain
