Brother, always reaching far too high
But I can see the tragic side, and it ain't easy
And brother you won't let anybody help
Why do you sacrifice yourself?
You can't go on this way

Tell me why, oh why?
Why don't you open up your heart?
Let the light from inside
Show us who you are

And when it looks like rain
And when the dark clouds fill your sky
There ain't no good reason why
You've got to feel the pain
Even when it looks like rain
Just hold your head up high
I know the sun's gonna shine
Even when it looks like rain

Hey sister, another story must be told
Just count the blessings you still hold
What's done is done
Hey sister, you can find the one you need
Don't have to live the life you lead
Don't be the lonely one

Tell me why, oh why?
Why don't you open up your heart?
Let the light from inside
Show us who you are

And when it looks like rain
And when the dark clouds fill your sky
There ain't no good reason why
You've got to feel the pain
Even when it looks like rain
Just hold your head up high
I know the sun's gonna shine, oooh

Don't get down and don't get washed away, oooh
Just remind yourself every day
That into each life
A little rain must fall
So let it rain
Rain, oooh
Even when it looks like rain
Just hold your head up high
I know the sun's gonna shine
Even when it looks like rain
Rain, rain, rain
When it looks like rain . . .
