She said I want you to understand
I"m not off to someone new
I don't even have one waitin' in the wings
So I mean it's not like we're through

It's just I'm young, not innocent
Ooh perhaps the space to grow
I've learned from you and I thank you a lot
But it's time one of us go

If you were alone
If you were alone

If you need me, call me
I'll be there when you want me girl
I'll be waitin'
Hopin'
With my arms wide open girl

To tell you the truth
I started to cry
When I heard those words last night
Ooh that's when I realized she had to live
She's be back if it was right

If you were alone
If you were alone

(call me)
Yeah
(call me)

If you were alone
If you were alone

If you need me, call me
I'll be there when you want me girl
I'll be waitin'
Hopin'
With my arms wide open girl
If you need me, call me
I'll be there when you want me girl
I'll be waitin'
Hopin'
Ah.....

(Whenever it rains)
(Ah...)
(Whenever it rains)
(Whenever it rains)
(Whenever it rains....whenever it rains)
