  • The nearer we got to Andorra
    The sun set on the left
    The rounded mountains pointed
    To the black clouds in the West

    Hey, there's a darkness
    In the sky that's not the night
    Hey, there's a rain cloud there
    That's shutting out the light

    (Chorus:)
    What do I tell you, it's always the same:
    When you run for the sun, you catch the rain

    As soon as we reached Barcelona
    The cold wind touched the beach
    The sun we left in London
    Is away beyond our reach

    Hey, I said darling:
    It seems a waste of time
    Hey, all I do is sit
    And drink our Spanish wine

    What do I tell you, it's always the same:
    When you run for the sun, you catch the rain

    Of all the tales of Granada
    They tell of Islam's run
    They lived beneath the Moorish lord
    Beneath a Moorish sun

    Oh, how we yearned to turn
    Our faces to that glare
    When down from the mountains
    Came the rain to soak our hair

    What do I tell you, it's always the same:
    When you run for the sun, you catch the rain

    What do I tell you, it's always the same:
    When you run for the sun, you catch the rain Writer/s: CHRIS WHITE, ROD ARGENT
