RAIN ON THE ROOF
© Margaret MacDonald 2006

It’s a rainy Sunday
There’s a storm in my head
Cuz you’re leaving me already
Was it something I said?
As I stare out the window
My coffee’s gone cold
Can’t let these bitter tears take hold

I hear the rain on the roof
Pounding you out of my mind
Steady rain on the roof
Driving you out of my life
The rain on the roof
Is telling me I’m gonna be fine
Without you, without you

Think I’ll get in my car
Pick a place on the map
Sing out loud to the radio
Drive out the mad sadness
All I see in the mirror
Is a lonely dead-end
All I want is to be myself again


I hear the rain on the roof
Pounding you out of my mind
Steady rain on the roof
Driving you out of my life
The rain on the roof
Is telling me I’m gonna be fine
Without you, without you

It’s a lazy Sunday
I’m not so far gone
Getting over you already
And it’s time to move on
So why am I calling you now
When I’m trying to forget you
I must have better things to do

I hear the rain on the roof
Pounding you out of my mind
Steady rain on the roof
Driving you out of my life
Rain on the roof
Is telling me I’m gonna be fine
Without you, without you
Without you
