The Weatherman (No Wonder I Feel Blue)

 

Songbirds


Whatever happened to,
All those dreams that we planted?
Life can be so cruel
No doubt about it.

‘Cos everywhere I go
There are constant reminders,
I can’t escape from you
No wonder I feel blue

The weatherman says it’s going to rain
There’s nothing he can do
You took the sun away
No wonder I feel blue.

Sitting here alone inside this empty room
Waiting for the telephone to ring,
Praying hard that you'll be on the other end
Saying you’re coming home again.

Sometimes I feel afraid
I want to run and hide away.
But I can’t run to you
No wonder I feel, no wonder I feel blue

The weatherman says it’s going to rain
There’s nothing he can do
You took the sun away
No wonder I feel blue

The weatherman says it’s going to rain
There’s nothing he can do
You took the sun away
No wonder I feel blue.
No wonder I feel blue.
No wonder I feel blue.
No wonder I feel blue.
