Why does the rain fall from the sky?
How can a sugar pill take this pain away?
I should have known that you would break my heart
You've ended something that didn't have a chance to start

Put out the stars
Rub out the sky
Look to the future
Wipe the teardrop from my eye
Shut out the sun
Put out the light
Want you to tell me how you're gonna make it right

(Chorus)
Why I am crying over you?
Why?
'Cos there's nothing else that I can do
Why do I always look a fool?
Why?

Wish I'd read the signs and left you well alone
God, I wanna call you but I can't pick up the phone

Put out the stars
Rub out the sky
Look to the future
Wipe the teardrop from my eye
Shut out the sun
Bring on the night
Want you to show me how you're gonna make it right

(Chorus)
Why I am crying over you?
Why?
'Cos there's nothing else that I can do
Why do I always look a fool?
Why?

Why I am crying over you?
(Tell me why. Why does the rain fall from the sky?)
Why?
'Cos there's nothing else that I can do
(Why do the tears fall from my eyes?)
Why do I always look a fool?
(Why does the rain fall from the sky?)
Why?
(Oh tell me why)
(Tell me why)
