So it's over
He's with
Someone else
And you know her
And you just
Can get any lower
You sit
In the dark alone
And won't answer your phone
Well I'm sorry
I won't attend
Your pity party
I'd rather go
Have Calamari
And maybe a drink
And yes I think
You should
Come with me

Life isn't lost
There will be pain
But life goes on
With everyday
A brand new song
But if you'd rather
Stay at home
Let me do you a favor

I'll ask the sun
To shine away
From you today
So you can cry (If that's what you want, alright)
I'll ask the clouds
To bring the rain to you today
So you can cry (If that's what you want alright)
Ooh, if that's what you want alright

I'm a lover, and the pain of a heart from another
Can be difficult to recover
Yes this I know, but difficult isn't impossible
And you shiver (shiver)
He was your want, you cry, lips quiver (quiver)
Well honey go on and cry me a river
You wanna be down (Wanna be down)
Well fine let me help you out, how bout

I'll ask the sun
To shine away
From you today
So you can cry (If that's what you want, alright)
I'll ask the clouds
To bring the rain to you today
So you can cry (If that's what you want alright)

And your tears won't bring him back
I know you wish that it did
But it just don't work like that
Oh, I know that healin takes time, hey
Even your heart has a pace
Oh, but how much time are you gonna take, mmm
Too much would be a mistake, oh, oh, oh, oh

I'll ask the sun
To shine away
From you today
So you can cry (If that's what you want, alright)
I'll ask the clouds
To bring the rain to you today
So you can cry (If that's what you want alright)

I'll ask the sun to shine away from you today
So you can cry
If that's what you want...alright

    I love listening to this song again and again and not get tired of the tune and the words. Its about a girl that just had a break up and during which time another guy came along and is prepare to wait until her heart heal... And showing her that he loves her and will wait but will not wait forever...
