Oh no, it's raining again Oh will my heart ever mend. Oh no, it's raining again You're old enough some people say To read the signs and walk away It's only time that heals the pain And makes the sun come out again It's raining again Oh no, my love's at an end. Oh no, it's raining again Too bad I'm losing a friend. C'mon you little fighter No need to get uptighter C'mon you little fighter And get back up again Oh get back up again Fill your heart again...
