lyrics

Tell me why you can't feel the sunshine
Tell me why you only feel the rain
Your blue sky is always clouding over
Your alibi is always the same

Fly away my love
Play the mourning dove
Cry for everything
and never learn to sing like an angel through the dark

Don't talk to me of tragedy and sorrow
like you're the only one who's ever felt the pain

That's just the way that I used to play
I was three times my back to the wall before I turned around
I was set up to take a fall like a second-rate clown

Take me out and throw me in the water
Turn me around and pull me back again
You could shine like all the stars of heaven
Tell me why you only feel the rain

Fly away my love
Play the mourning dove
Cry for everything
and never learn to sing like an angel through the dark

Got to finish with all these things that been keeping me down
