Lyrics

Corner On the Rain

Written By: L. Lozowick / E. Flaherty

I been cryin’ over you
Weepin’, in such pain
I have cried so many tears
Got a corner on the rain

You better come on back to me
Before the world dries up
You better not leave me alone
Only you can stem the tide

Tears ain’t stopped in so long
I am livin’ in a flood
Tears flow like a river, yeah
Soon I’ll start cryin’ blood

Well honey you have got to
Take responsibility
To help me stop these endless tears
You’ve got to heed this plea
