  • I'm no stranger to the rain
    I'm a friend of thunder
    Friend, is it any wonder lightning strikes me?
    I've fought with the devil
    Got down on his level
    But I never gave in, so he gave up on me

    I'm no stranger to the rain
    I can spot bad weather
    And I'm good at finding shelter in a downpour
    I've been sacrificed by brothers
    Crucified by lovers
    But through it all, I withstood the pain
    I'm no stranger to the rain

    When I get that foggy feeling
    The one I'm feeling now
    If I don't keep my head up, I may drown
    But it's hard to keep believing
    I'll even come out even
    While the rain beats a hole in the ground
    And tonight, it's really coming down

    I'm no stranger to the rain
    But there'll always be tomorrow
    And I'll beg, steal, or borrow a little sunshine
    And I'll put this cloud behind me
    That's how the man designed me
    To ride the wind and dance in a hurricane
    I'm no stranger to the rain

    Oh, no, I'm no stranger to the rain

    I'm no stranger to the rain
    I'm a friend of thunder
    Friend, is it any wonder lightning strikes me?
    But I'll put this cloud behind me
    That's how the man designed me
    To ride the wind and dance in a hurricane
    I'm no stranger to the rain

    Oh, no, I'm no stranger to the rain Writer/s: Ron Hellard, Sonny Curtis
