Can't Stop the Rain
by Jennifer Hudson



27th of January, think he died a year ago today
She's crying on my shoulder and begging me to make the hurting go away
Pretty brown eyes, tears full of guilt, a heart full of pain and fear
I wanna tell her it's okay but we both know she's the reason he's not here.

I keep on crying, but it doesn't seem to help at all (seem to help at all)
With every single tear drop, it's like another raindrop falls
And I would (and I would)
If I could (if I could, but the try would be in vain
(The try would be in vain)
Said so matter what I do, I can't stop the rain.
So I cry

[Chorus]
Oh, I can't stop the rain (stop the rain) [Repeat: x2]
If I could, you know I would, but the try would be in vain.
So I cry
Oh, I can't stop the rain (stop the rain)

Faded picture in a little gold locket, and she never takes it off
I know it's small, but it's heavy 'cus it's filled with guilt
I know and she why his life is lost
I feel bad for her, but I'm having mixed emotions
Cause he was a friend of mine
Somewhere in the deepest darkest part of my mind
I wish it was her that died that night

I keep on crying, but it doesn't seem to help at all (seem to help at all)
With every single tear drop, it's like another raindrop falls (raindrop falls)
And I would [and I would], if I could (if I could)
But the try would be in vain (the try would be in vain)
Said so matter what I do, I can't stop the rain
So I cry

[Chorus]

One rainy Saturday night, a happy anniversary
Celebrating long, champagne all around
They had a little too much to drink
They got in the car, and he could barely stand up
So she figured that she'd drive.
Staring at him I suppose, a sudden jerk of the wheel,
And the car flipped about three times

I keep on crying, but it doesn't seem to help at all.
With every single tear drop, it's like another raindrop falls [raindrop falls].
And I would [and I would], if I could (if I could) but the try would be in vain.
Said so matter what I do (what I do) I can't stop the rain.
So I cry

[Chorus]
