Song lyrics

  • I know you loved him, a long time ago.
    Even now in my arms, you still want him I know.
    But darling this time, let your memories die.
    When you hold me tonight, don't close your eyes.

    Don't close your eyes, let it be me.
    Don't pretend it's him, in some fantasy.
    Darling just once, let yesterday go,
    And you'll find more love than you'll ever know.
    Just hold me tight, when you love me tonight.
    And don't close your eyes.

  • I'm no stranger to the rain.
    I'm a friend of thunder,
    Friend, is it any wonder lightning strikes me?
    I've fought with the devil,
    Got down on his level,
    But I never gave in, so he gave up on me.
  • I'm no stranger to the rain.
    But there'll always be tomorrow,
    And I'll beg, steal, or borrow a little sunshine.
    And I'll put this cloud behind me,
    That's how the man designed me
    To ride the wind and dance in a hurricane.
    I'm no stranger to the rain.
    • "I'm No Stranger to the Rain"
  • The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
    There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
    A touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
    Yeah, you say it best
    When you say nothing at all
    • "When You Say Nothing at All"
