    I wrote this as a poem last, but am considering converting it to song lyrics.

    IT FEELS JUST LIKE THE RAIN
    © Copyright 2006 Albert MInter

    You said you’d never hurt me
    Or take your love away,
    That you’d be mine forever,
    Not merely for a day.

    My heart I gladly gave to you
    And trusted you to stay,
    I gave you all I had to give
    But you began to stray.

    It wasn’t long before I knew
    That there would come a day,
    You’d find a love you wanted more
    And soon would go away.

    CHORUS:
    If you’d seen each silent tear that fell,
    My sorrow and my pain,
    Perhaps you would have understood,
    It feels just like the rain.

    But all those tears I cried
    Could not protect me from the pain,
    That you would carve into my heart
    It feels just like the rain.

    - - - - - - - - - - - -


    You didn’t mean to hurt me
    At least that‘s what you say,
    You didn’t plan to break my heart
    By leaving me this way.

    But hearts, like broken playthings that
    A child has cast away,
    Can never be made whole again
    No matter what you say.

    Your parting words that were so sweet
    Can’t take the pain away,
    It turns my nights to endless years,
    Then endless years into my day.

    CHORUS:
    If you could feel each tear that falls,
    The sorrow and the pain,
    You‘d know just how my heartache feels,
    It feels just like the rain.

    More tears than I’ll remember
    Will not wash away the pain,
    That you carved so deep into my heart
    It feels just like the rain.

    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    It’s really no big mystery
    It’s only part of life,
    That sorrow, pain and sadness
    Cut like the sharpest knife.

    But one day the same will come to you
    Someone will take your heart away,
    Then when he’s done, he’ll leave you, too.
    And you will have to pay.


    So go on with your life and loves
    Don’t think of me again,
    Just break yourself another heart
    And leave it in the rain.


    CHORUS:
    When you can feel each tear that falls,
    The sorrow and the pain,
    You’ll know just how my heartache feels,
    It will feel just like the rain.

    More tears than you’ll remember
    Cannot wash away the pain,
    That he will carve into your
    It will feel just like the rain.

    - - - - - - - - - - - -

    CHORUS:
    Yes, you will feel each tear that falls,
    The sorrow and the pain,
    You’ll know just how my heartache feels,
    It feels just like the rain.

    More tears than you’ll remember
    Will never wash away the pain,
    He carved so deep into your heart
    It will feel just like the rain.

    hi albert I was most impressed with the chorus on this one,
    some of are more expert memebers will tell you whether or how to make it into song lyrics I'm sure,

    I thought it was articulate and a respectable sentiment
