A rainy day is a day for sleep
A lonely heart has cause to weep
The love you have is all you may keep
A rainy day is a day for reflection
Empty arms long for affection
Will the love in your heart still offer direction?
On a rainy day such as this
Is it wrong to still remember his kiss?
It’s something I feel I would always miss
On a rainy day with a drowsy dream
That tastes of honey and peaches and cream
But we’ve grown apart in each other’s esteem
It isn’t the way either one of us said
He’s taken another into his bed
Into his arms and into his head
One more step and she’ll have his heart
And we’ll be divided, even more apart
Perhaps she’s sweet, the little tart
Who am I kidding? It was bound to be
One of many, to him – that is me
And not the prettiest for him to see
His love is gone and I’m flat alone
So sleep is best thing I condone
Sleep next to the dear old telephone
To get out of this world and away from the pain
Until I wake up all alone again
And I have to keep trying forever and then-
Then try some more not to be sad
And not think about what the two of us had
Try to look for cause to be glad
Until a rainy day brings cause to sleep
And I go to my dreams – my dreams are deep.
For my lonely heart has cause to weep.
