Etta James - Cry Like a Rainy Day





How many tears now darling
Must a girl let fall
How many years will it take
To forgive me for it all

You see when i took you for granted
I knew not just what I'd done
I was a fool not to see
That you were the perfect one

I made some wrong moves
I won't deny
Went lookin'for love when it was
Right before my eyes

So now don't go and tell me
That you found somebody new
I tell you that's gonna hurt me
More than i could ever hurt you

I'm gonna cry
It's just that I
Don't want to see
A good thing slip away

Late at night that's when I
I hope and pray
These lonely tears
Will wash the pain away
And I'm gonna cry, cry, cry
Like a rainy day

I'm gonna get it together
Gonna try to make you understand
Wrote all down in a letter
From one woman to a man

Remember these arms
How they held you then
Mark my words
It's gonna be that way again

Give me one more chance
I swear to god I'll be true
Don't walk away
Now i'll never never make it without you

I'm gonna cry
Like a rainy day
It's just that i don't want to see
A good thing slip away
Late at night that's when I, I hope and pray
These lonely tears will wash the pain away
I'm gonna cry cry cry like a rainy day
I'm gonna cry cry like a rainy day
I'm gonna cry cry
