Under the highway overpass
They ran for cover from heaven above
His cycle quit a quarter mile back
Dripping wet as the cars flew past
Pigeons nested overhead
Painted words & broken glass
They knew then that their love wouldn't last

[Chorus]
And when it rains
My lover cries
And it's a rain that'll wash away the sins of the world
A rain that shows beauty never dies
Cause when it rains
My lover cries
When it rains
My lover cries

Rain all day
Rain all night
"How the hell long has it been raining?"
I dunno, a couple days
But 40 nights over at my place
Why do I make you cry and cry?
Cause then it pours and pours outside
Please, please, honey, let's not fight

[Chorus]
And when it rains
My lover cries
It's a rain that'll wash away the sins of the world
A rain that shows beauty never dies
Cause when it rains
My lover cries
When it rains
My lover cries

And when it rains
My lover cries
It's a rain that'll wash away the sins of the world
A rain that shows beauty never dies
Cause when it rains
My lover cries
When it rains
My lover cries
Say, when it rains
My lover cries

Under the highway
Chopper quit
Dripping wet
It wouldn't last
Wouldn't last
