Eurythmics – The Day It Rained Forever lyrics

Once upon a time there was a funny girl
Who fell for a funny boy
They built a funny house and made some funny kids
And christened it the house of holy joy

If forever meant forever that was the place
Or so she told her friends
But the city took her lovers to another world
Left her waiting for the flowers to bloom again

And she laughed
And she cried
She damn near died
On the day it rained forever

She walked around the garden with an empty mind
Feeling tired and worn
Not exactly sure what she was meant to find
Heaven knows maybe a rose without a thorn

She laughed
She cried
She damn near died
On the day it rained forever
