can’t stop the rain lyrics – jennifer hudson

oooooh oooh ooh [x2]

27th of january, think he died a year ago today
she’s crying on my shoulder and begging me to make the hurting go away
pretty brown eyes, tears full of guilt, a heart full of pain and fear
i wanna tell her it’s okay but we both know she’s the reason he’s not here.

i keep on crying, but it doesn’t seem to help at all {seem to help at all}
with every single tear drop, it’s like another raindrop falls
and i would {and i would}, if i could {if i could}… but the try would be in vain {the try would be in vain}
said so matter what i do… i can’t stop the rain.
so i cry
oooooooh… i can’t stop the rain {stop the rain} [x2]
if i could, you know i would… but the try would be in vain.
so i cry
oooooooh… i can’t stop the rain {stop the rain}

faded picture in a little gold locket, and she never takes it off
i know it’s small, but it’s heavy ‘cus it’s filled with guilt
i know and she why his life is lost
i feel bad for her, but i’m having mixed emotions
‘cus he was a friend of mine
somewhere in the deepest darkest part of my mind
i wish it was her that died that night

{ooooh}

i keep on crying, but it doesn’t seem to help at all {seem to help at all}
with every single tear drop, it’s like another raindrop falls {raindrop falls}
and i would {and i would}, if i could {if i could}… but the try would be in vain {the try would be in vain}
said so matter what i do… i can’t stop the rain
so i cry
oooooooh… i can’t stop the rain {stop the rain} [x2]
if i could, you know i would… but the try would be in vain.
so i cry
oooooooh… i can’t stop the rain {stop the rain}

one rainy sat*rday night, a happy anniversary
celebrating long {?}, champagne all around
they had a little too much to drink
they got in the car, and he could barely stand up
so she figured that she’d drive.
staring at him i suppose, a sudden jerk of the wheel,
and the car flipped about three times

{oooooooh}

i keep on crying, but it doesn’t seem to help at all.
with every single tear drop, it’s like another raindrop falls {raindrop falls}.
and i would {and i would}, if i could {if i could}… but the try would be in vain.
said so matter what i do {what i do}… i can’t stop the rain.
so i cry
oooooooh… i can’t stop the rain {stop the rain} [x2]
if i could, you know i would… but the try would be in vain.
oooooooh… i can’t stop the rain {stop the rain}
