  • Well don't you cry now,
    Don't go drowning in your tears
    Haven't you learnt anything
    After all these years?
    All God's little children
    Are beautiful and pure
    And you're as good
    As all of them
    Of this you can be sure

    And we are just the same
    Underneath the shadows
    Of the sun
    And we are just the same
    No more no less than anyone
    All the people
    Of this lonely world
    Have got some pain inside
    Don't go thinking
    You're the only one
    Who ever broke right down
    And cried

    That's when the rain comes down
    That's when the rain comes down

    And this is for the broken dreamers
    This is for vacant souls
    This is for the hopeless losers
    This is for the hopeless fools
    And the burnt out
    And the useless
    And the lonely & the weak
    And the lost & the degraded
    And the too dumb to speak

    And the day goes down
    That's when the day
    Goes down
