I feel transparent to your eyes
you know me well so I can't hide
the pain I bottle up within
from chances lost for love again...
I feel it every time I see
what may have been for her and me.
So time time after time I hide the pain
and do my crying in the rain
where no one can see the tears you cry
for they mix with rain as it blows by,
and the only way to tell tears from rain
is only one betrays your pain.
So I dry my face and smile again
and push the tears down deep within
and hear the thunder say aloud
the sound of heartache in the clouds.
And feel the harsh, cold rain embrace
the tears that flow upon my face
and mix again just like before
as I think back of old times and more...
When she and I were closest friends
I thought the laughs would never end
But life it has a cold hard laugh
as if feels your heart is ripped in half
and trampled on in such a way
it feels love will never come your way.
I sigh and pull back on the mask
I've worn so long as others ask
how I am and how she's been.
I smile and tell them we're just good friends.
So I wear my mask and tell my heart
to be content and not fall apart...
To dry the tears and hide the pain
and keep on Crying In The Rain.
