  • It's no secret that lately there ain't no escape
    And that I've been waking up alone
    Just me and the TV and a sinking feeling
    That you ain't ever coming home

    But today,
    The tears ain't gonna hit the floor
    'Cause the boat's in the bay
    And it's calling my name
    So I'm heading on out the door

    'Cause the sun's too bright,
    The sky's too blue
    Beer's too cold to be thinking about you
    Gonna take this heartbreak and tuck it away
    Save it for a rainy day

    When I turned the ignition
    I knew I'd be missing
    The feel of the wind on my face
    I was stuck in a habit
    Of wondering what happened
    Too busy taking all the blame

    Got a drink, or two,
    It's a fool proof remedy
    It's a beautiful world with a beautiful girl
    Kind of making eyes at me

    'Cause the sun's too bright,
    The sky's too blue
    Beer's too cold to be thinking about you
    Gonna take this heartbreak and tuck it away
    Save it for a rainy day

    Yeah, the music's too good,
    My friends are all out
    And they're all too high to be bringing 'em down
    If they ask about you
    I've got nothing to say
    I'll save it for a rainy day

    They'll be plenty of time for what if's and why's
    And how'd I let you get away
    But the lying in bed all stuck in my head
    Is just gonna have to wait

    'Cause the sun's too bright,
    The sky's too blue
    Beer's too cold to be thinking about you
    Gonna take this heartbreak and tuck it away
    Save it for a rainy day

    Yeah, the music's too good,
    My friends are all out
    And they're all too high to be bringing 'em down
    If they ask about you
    I've got nothing to say
    I'll save it for a rainy day

    Gonna take this heartbreak and tuck it away
    Save it for a rainy day
