Life isn't easy
Love never lasts
You just carry on
And keep moving fast

I turned off the highway
Pulled into town
I'm fancy free darlin'
And I've travelled round

Sometimes I'm up
Sometimes I'm down
Tell me where can I run to
Tell me how have I sinned
When you cry like a rainstorm
And howl like the wind

So who shall I start with
Tell me how to begin
When you cry like a rainstorm
And howl like the wind

My thoughts are lost in memories
That keep me free
Know if all the stars were shining
They would not help me see

Don't you know that
Sometimes I'm up
Most times down
Where can I run to
Tell me how have I sinned
You cry like a rainstorm
And you howl like the wind

Well my life isn't easy
And my love never seems to last
So I'll keep on carrying on darlin'
I'll just keep moving fast

I turned off the highway
Pulled into town
And I'm still fancy free
And I keep travellin' round

Sometimes I'm up
Most times I'm down
Where can I run to
Tell me how have I sinned
When you cry like a rainstorm
And you howl like the wind

So who shall I start with
Tell me how to begin
When you cry like a rainstorm
And you howl like the wind

Cry like a rainstorm
And you howl like the wind
