Lyrics

I Hate the Rain

Written By: Jon Hall

Was it your touch or smile, that brought me to my knees
maybe the way you dress
it took the world from me,
I can't explain it to you,
Its something that i want but i don't know how to make it come true
Its only in my dreams,
Only time i see her, feelin like i need her
It's like she's on T.V,
She moves in a way but I just can't explain it, I, Wake up and i go through the everyday motions, can't wait for the night.
Pray one day you appear in this world,
but the days are flying by.

Baby I hate the rain,
Thunder takes you away
Its shakes my heart, plays my mind,
and makes me stay awake
A storm is closing in, Daylight on the horizon,
In my eyes, in my life, you no longer live.

You stole my soul
girl you are my light,
daylight has no meaning,
wake up with teary eyes.
I can't explain this to you
I wake and i forget just what we went through,
make this come true.

Its only in my dreams,
feeling like i need her,
every time I see her,
Like she's on T.V
she moves in a way but i just cant explain it.
I wake up and i Go through the everyday motions,
cant wait for the night.
pray on day you appear in this world,
but the days are flying by.

Baby I hate the rain,
Thunder takes you away
Its shakes my heart, plays my mind,
and makes me stay awake
A storm is closing in, Daylight on the horizon,
In my eyes, in my life, you no longer live.

And i wait in my dreams for your voice,
in my bed with no light and no noise.
Girl you bring a new light in my dreams.
waking up is much harder to me.
