*Why*

Why does the rain
Fall from the sky
How can a sugar pill
Take this pain away

I should have known
That you would break my heart
You've ended something
That didn't have a chance to start

Put out the stars
Rub out the sky
Look to the future
Wipe the teardrop from my eye
Shut out the sun
Put out the light
Want you to tell me how you're gonna make it right

Why
Am I crying over you
Why
'Cos there's nothing else that I can do
Why
Do I always look a fool
Why

Wish I'd read the signs
And left you well alone
God, I wanna call you
But I can't pick up the phone

Put out the stars
Rub out the sky
Look to the future
Wipe the teardrop from my eye
Shut out the sun
Bring on the night
Want you to show me how you're gonna make it right

Why
Am I cryin' over you
Why
'Cos there's nothing else that I can do
Why
Do I always look a fool
Why

(Tell me why) why
Am I crying over you
(Why does the rain fall from the sky)
Why
'Cos there's nothing else that I can do
(Why do the tears fall from my eyes)
Why
Do I always look a fool
(Why does the rain fall from the sky)
Why (Oh tell me why)

Tell me why
