"Crying In The Rain" as written by Carole King and Howard Greenfield....
I'll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurting me
I've got my pride and I know how to hide
All the sorrow and pain
I'll do my crying in the rain

If I wait for cloudy skies
You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
You'll never know that I still love you
So though the heartaches remain
I'll do my crying in the rain

Raindrops falling from heaven
Will never wash away my misery
But since we're not together
I'll wait for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you'll never see

Someday when my crying's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool
But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain

    General CommentI'm sorry but I have never heard the original version, I loved this song through a-ha.

    It is a very beautiful song. Sad but also hopeful. I especially love this part:

    "Someday when my crying's done
    I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun"

    I watched them play it live in Thessaloniki, Greece. They were amazing! In fact they sound much better live! :) Can you imagine?

    General Commenterm, crying the rain wasnt even by the everlys. it was sung by them. i think it was written by carole king and another. so even the everlys dont deserve the credit by Shadows logic.

    In any event, who cares. lets just interpret the song :)

    it's basically about pride in love and relationships. the guy has been hurt but he wants to act as the guy and not cry. and he says he will only cry in the rain, so she doesn't get to see that she has hurt him so. maybe, crying in the rain will help him too as ever venting he might get to smile.

    General CommentI love this verse
    "If I wait for stormy skies
    You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
    You'll never know that I still love you so
    Though the heartaches remain
    I'll do my crying in the rain "

    This song is great, no matter who covers it :) It's about hurting after a heartbreak. Lots of people can relate

    General CommentI'm a great believer in giving credit to the original artists.
    So A-ha, even though you are, in my eyes, the best band there is, I refuse to interpret this song under you name.
    This Song was original Written and sung by:

    THE EVERLY BROTHERS

    So anyone who wishes to interpret it, please go there :D

    Sorry lads :p
