I'm lookin' in the mirror
At this woman down and out
She's internally dyin'
I know this was not what love's about

I don't wanna be this woman
The second time around
'Cause I'm wakin' up screamin', no longer believin'
That I'm gonna be around

And over and over I tried
Yet over and over you lied
Gettin' over and over my pride, yeah
I don't know why

And over and over I tried
Yet over and over you lied
Gettin' over and over my pride, yeah
I don't know why

Rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe
Till ya, just rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe, baby

See, I don't want to hold my pillow late at night no
More
I'm tossin' and turnin' and thinkin' 'bout burnin'
Down these walls
I-I don't wanna fill this fire no more, no more, no
More
See, I made up my mind 'cause I've wasted my time
Ain't nothin' here to keep me warm

And over and over I tried
Yet over and over you lied
Gettin' over and over my pride, yeah
I don't know why

And over and over I tried
Yet over and over you lied
Gettin' over and over my pride, yeah
I cried, I cried, I cried, I cried, I cried

Oh... oh... oh... oh...

Rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe
Till ya, just rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe, no

I'm so tired of the rain
In my life
And I'm so tired of the strain
And now you're gonna lie

'Cause sometimes I can't sleep at night and
This here it just don't seem right and
Sometimes I just wonder why I
All most, let my life go by

'Cause sometimes I can't sleep at night and
This here it just don't seem right and
Sometimes I just wonder why I
All most, let my life go by

Oh...

Rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe
Till ya, just rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe, no

Rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe
Till ya, just rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe,

Baby!
