On the poor side of town, lives a girl no one knows
With her worn out shoes and her ragged clothes
Her mother tries to provide since her father has died
But no one even cares if she's alive

And when the rain comes down
She's never getting wet
And though the skies are gray
She'll still be smiling yet

Cause in her eyes there's no teardrops
In her heart there's no pain
She's got her love as an umbrella from the rain
Oh, what love is an umbrella from the rain

On the rich side of town, lives a boy no one knows
With his shiny shoes and his fancy clothes
He's got everything he needs if he wants to succeed
But no one even cares if he's alive

And when the rain comes down
He's never getting wet
And though the skies are gray
He'll still be smiling yet

Cause in his eyes there's no teardrops
In his heart there's no pain
He's got his love as an umbrella from the rain
Oh, his love is an umbrella from the rain

Isn't life feeling strange and money can't buy
All you need to get by
All around the world, there are folks no one knows
If they're worn out shoes, their fancy clothes
Will they find more there to give for and open the door
To know that someone cares if they're alive

And when the rain comes down
We're never getting wet
And though the skies are gray
We'll still be smiling yet

Cause in our eyes there's no teardrops
In our hearts there's no pain
We've got a love as an umbrella from the rain
Oh, our love is an umbrella from the rain

And when the rain comes down
We're never getting wet
And though the skies are gray
We'll still be smiling yet
(repeat 4x to fade)
