Maybe I should have saved those leftover dreams Funny but here's that rainy day Here's that rainy day they told me about And I laughed at the thought that it might turn out this way
Where is that worn out wish that I threw aside After it brought my love so near Funny how love becomes a cold rainy day Funny that rainy day is here
It's funny how love becomes a cold rainy day Funny that rainy day is here
It's funny how love becomes a cold rainy day... Funny that rainy day is here
