  • April is a cruel time
    Even though the sun may shine
    And world looks in the shade as it slowly comes away
    Still falls the April rain
    And the valley's filled with pain
    And you can't tell me quite why
    As I look up to the gray sky
    Where it should be blue
    Grey sky where I should see you
    Ask why, why it should be so
    I'll cry, say that I don't know

    Baby once in a while I'll forget and I'll smile
    But then the feeling comes again of an April without end
    Of an April lonely as a girl
    In the dark of my mind I can see all too fine
    But there is nothing to be done when I just can't feel the sun
    And the springtime's the season of the night

    Grey sky where it should be blue
    Grey sky where I should see you
    Ask why, why it should be so
    I'll cry, say that I don't know
