Birds sing for everyone but me, for me it rains
And I can't hear the music for the pain
I see such happiness for some, but not for me

With love, I always try so hard to get it right
I find it gone just when I think I might
Regretfully I see it last for some, but not for me

Out of reach of all the things I want to have and hold
I've come to just accept that's how it goes
I've come so close
Not for me, it's not for me to question, I suppose
But I keep wonderin' what the future holds
Why must it be?
That life's so sweet for some, but not for me

Birds sing for everyone but me, for me it rains
And I can't see the sunshine for the pain
But I see such happiness for some, but not for me

For me it rains, there's only pain
It's not for me
