Cry Like A Rainy Day Lyrics

How many tears now darling
must a girl let fall
how many years will it take
to forgive me for it all

You see when i took you for granted
I knew not just what I'd done
I was a fool not to see
that you were the perfect one

I made some wrong moves
I won't deny
went lookin'for love when it was
right before my eyes

So now don't go and tell me
that you found somebody new
I tell you that's gonna hurt me
more than i could ever hurt you

I'm gonna cry
it's just that I
don't want to see
a good thing slip away

Late at night that's when I
I hope and pray
these lonely tears
will wash the pain away
and I'm gonna cry, cry, cry
like a rainy day

I'm gonna get it together
gonna try to make you understand
wrote all down in a letter
from one woman to a man

Remember these arms
how they held you then
mark my words
it's gonna be that way again

Give me one more chance
I swear to god I'll be true
don't walk away
now i'll never never make it without you

I'm gonna cry
like a rainy day
it's just that i don't want to see
a good thing slip away
late at night that's when I, I hope and pray
these lonely tears will wash the pain away
I'm gonna cry cry cry like a rainy day
I'm gonna cry cry like a rainy day
I'm gonna cry cry
