"Andorra" as written by and Chris White Rod Argent....
The nearer we got to Andorra
The sun set on the left
The rounded mountains pointed
To the black clouds in the West

Hey, there's a darkness
In the sky that's not the night
Hey, there's a rain cloud there
That's shutting out the light

(Chorus:)
What do I tell you, it's always the same:
When you run for the sun, you catch the rain

As soon as we reached Barcelona
The cold wind touched the beach
The sun we left in London
Is away beyond our reach

Hey, I said darling:
It seems a waste of time
Hey, all I do is sit
And drink our Spanish wine

What do I tell you, it's always the same:
When you run for the sun, you catch the rain

Of all the tales of Granada
They tell of Islam's run
They lived beneath the Moorish lord
Beneath a Moorish sun

Oh, how we yearned to turn
Our faces to that glare
When down from the mountains
Came the rain to soak our hair

What do I tell you, it's always the same:
When you run for the sun, you catch the rain

What do I tell you, it's always the same:
When you run for the sun, you catch the rain

    General CommentAs I listened to the lyrics and read along, I think there are a few slight differences. Here's the complete lyrics as I listened to them:

    "The nearer we got to Andorra
    The sun set on the left
    The more the mountains pointed
    To the black clouds in the West

    Hey, there's a darkness
    In the sky that's not the night
    Hey, there's a rain cloud there
    That's shutting out the light

    What do I tell you, it's always the same:
    When you run for the sun, you catch the rain

    As soon as we reached Barcelona
    The cold wind touched the beach
    The sun we left in London
    Is way beyond our reach

    Hey, I said darling:
    It seems a waste of time
    Hey, all we do is sit
    And drink our Spanish wine

    What do I tell you, it's always the same:
    When you run for the sun, you catch the rain

    In all of the tales of Granada
    They tell of Islam's run
    They lived beneath the Moorish lord
    Beneath a Moorish sun

    Oh, how we yearned to turn
    Our faces to that glare
    When down from the mountains
    Came the rain to soak our hair

    What do I tell you, it's always the same:
    When you run for the sun, you catch the rain

    What do I tell you, it's always the same:
    When you run for the sun, you catch the rain"
