Just after I screamed at you, "What the hell is it all about"
You spilled your coffee onto my sleeve, and you said
"Don't expect the tears to come from me babe
For I've already grieved"

But that's when you let me
Back into your dream

And I know you're frightened by my laughter
But you're not afraid to hold my pain
You see I'm never sure what you're after, babe
But it seems you only love me when it rains

You never treat me like you treat a gentle man
You only hit me when you know it hurts
But then why bother reaching down to where I'm battered
You got to raise me up from the dirt

Still that's when you let me
Back into your dream

I know you're frightened by my laughter
But you're not afraid to hold my pain
You see I'm never sure of what you're after, babe
But it seems you only love me when it rains

I have sworn to myself to stay protected
So I have strapped on a sword and a shield
But my Armour yes it ends up meltin'
When you come along tumblin' across the field
Once again I yield, I yield

Yes you get me crazy
'Cause you never even wear my presents babe
You wear flowers tucked into your hair
But when I'm cursin' in the night in my frustration
That's when suddenly you are there

Once again that's when you let me
Back into your dream

And I know you're frightened by my laughter
But you're not afraid to hold my pain
You see I'm never sure just what you're after, babe
But it seems you only love me when it rains

How come you only love me when it rains
How come you only love me when it rains
How come you only love me when it rains
How come you only love me when it rains
How come you only love me when it rains
