A million stupid love songs
Drop dead in the middle of the room
Your bag’s packed and your coat’s on
Before you leave would you pass me the broom
So I can sweep ‘em all under
The greatest hits and the one shot wonders
The rain’s the only thing
The rain’s the only thing singing like thunder

I go walkin’ out nights
Just to hear that hustle and flow
Baptized in the streetlights
The night owls and the midnight crows
They ain’t afraid of lightning
They’re terrified of the radio silence
And the rain’s the only thing
The rain’s the only thing they get through the night with

Monday poured and Tuesday roared and Wednesday had rain
Thursday spat and Friday’s cats and dogs again
But Saturday the clouds may break
And Sunday morning when I wake
The sun may smile and say, “hey pal, it’s over.”
That’s why the rain’s the only thing
The rain’s the only thing keeping me sober

The rain’s the only thing getting’ me over
Tappin’ my shoulder
Wiser but colder

Don’t say it’s over
(Don’t come knockin’ on my door)
Don’t say it’s over
(Don’t say what you did before)
Don’t say it’s over
(I don’t think of you anymore)
