You never need forgiveness
Left home at seventeen
Confident and wild
So much a child
Nobody taught you how to live
What to keep and what to give
You couldn't be delivered

Raised on hate
You would not be denied
To a life that's second rate
Behind some closing door
I've seen that look before
Who bring her flowers for her hair

Now she talks to strangers
But every night you call on me
Then you smile
To get you out the door
And watch me lose control

You rain on me
I used to think I knew
Rain down on me
Rain down on me
What I was waiting for
I don't think that anymore

You didn't seem to need too much at all
I never knew what to bring you
No pearls or chains
And nobody's sad refrains
I think back to the kindness in your eyes
Every time I wonder why

Now everybody wants you
But every night you call on me
Then you smile
Bring you flowers for your hair
To peel you off the wall

And I just lose control
You rain on me
Rain down on me
I used to think I knew
Rain down on me
What I was fighting for
I don't think that anymore

    The right lyrics

    You never need forgiveness
    Left home at seventeen
    Raised up on hate
    To a life that's second rate
    I've seen that look before
    Behind some closing door
    You couldn't be delivered
    Just won't be denied
    Too much a child
    Confident and wild
    Nobody taught you how to live
    What to keep and what to give
    Now she talks to strangers
    Who bring her flowers for her hair
    But every night you count on me
    To get you out the door
    Then you smile
    And watch me lose control
    You rain on me
    Rain down on me
    Rain down on me
    I used to think i knew
    What i was waiting for
    I don't think that anymore
    I didn't know what to bring you
    You don't seem to need too much at all
    No pearls or chains
    And nobody's sad refrains
    Everytime i wonder why
    I think back to the kindness in your eyes
    Now everybody wants you
    Bring you flowers for your hair
    But every night you count on me
    To peel you off the wall
    Then you smile
    And watch me lose control
    You rain on me
    Rain down on me
    Rain down on me
    I used to think i knew
    What i was fighting for
    I don't think that anymore
