How can I see what I'm needing for How can I give what I gave before How can you tell me that you want me to stay How can I stay when I'm trying to say That I can't live without the rain Yes I can't live without the rain How can I feel what I'm trying to feel How can I move when I'm heel to heel You're always shouting about the doubt in my eyes But I can't answer ''cause my eyes are so dry Now I can't live without the rain Yes I can't live without the rain Now I can't live without the rain That's falling on my head Rain that's falling on my head Rain that's falling Rain that's falling Rain that's falling on my head I started thinking back to you know when I'd like to send a line but then again How can I write you when there ain't no light? I'm feeling tired tonight but that is all right Now I can't live without the rain Yes I can't live without the rain
