I called U yesterday, U didn't answer your phone
The main drag is knowing that U probably weren't alone
So here I sit in my lonely room lookin' 4 my sunshine
But all I've got is 2 cigarettes and this broken heart of mine

CHORUS:
So let the rain come down, the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down
Let the rain come down, the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down

U've been gone 17 days and 17 long nights
The main drag is knowing that U're holding someone else tight
I wanna call U every day and beg U 2 be near me
But I know your head is under water, I doubt that U could hear me

CHORUS

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
17 days
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
17 days

I called U yesterday
U didn't answer your phone
Yet, U're the one who's always lonely
But I'm the one who's always alone

Here I sit in my lonely room lookin' 4 my sunshine
All I've got is 2 cigarettes and this broken heart of mine

CHORUS {repeat}

Why don't U answer your phone, babe? {fade out}

(17 days) {x2}
