Average White Band — Stop The Rain lyrics

Just yesterday you slipped
Away from me
Without so much
As one word of good-bye
You packed the sunshine
In your big old suitcase
Now only the rain fills the sky

You were mine
But suddenly it's changed
Wish that I... Could find a way
To stop the rain

I thought that everything
Was going fine
But I was blind
Blind as a man could be
I took for granted
What you tried hard to give
And now the rain
Is all I can see

You were mine -
But that was yesterday
Wish that I... Could find a way
To stop the rain

Now tell me please
Do you understand
What this feeling
Is all about
Cause when you left me
You took my heart -
Squeezed the sunshine out

But in time
This heart of mine will heal
The Sun will shine
And I can find a way to stop the rain
