  • So it's over
    He's with someone else and you know her
    And you just can get any lower
    You sit in the dark alone
    And won't answer your phone
    Well I'm sorry. I want to attend your pity party
    I rather go have calamari
    And maybe a drink
    And yes I think
    You should come with me

    Life is long
    There will be pain but life goes on
    With everyday a brand new song
    But if you rather stay at home
    Let me do you a favor

    I'll ask the sun to shine away from you today so you can cry
    (If that's what you want)
    I'll ask the clouds to bring the rain for you today so you can cry
    (If that's what you want alright)
    Oh If that's what you want alright

    I'ma Lover
    And the pain of a heart from another
    Can be difficult to recover
    Yes this I know
    But difficult isn't impossible
    And you shiver (Shiver)
    He was your warmth
    You Cry Lips Quiver
    Well honey go on cry me a river
    You wanna be down (you wanna be down)
    Fine let me help you out
    How bout

    I'll ask the sun to shine away from you today so you can cry
    (If that's what you want)
    I'll ask the clouds to bring the rain for you today so you can cry
    (If that's what you want alright)
    Oh If that's what you want alright

    And your tears won't bring him back
    I know you wish that it did
    But it just don't work like that
    Oh I know that healings takes time
    Hey even your heart has a pace
    Oh but how much time are you gonna take
    Hmm too much will be a mistake

    I'll ask the sun to shine away from you today so you can cry
    (If that's what you want)
    I'll ask the clouds to bring the rain for you today so you can cry
    (If that's what you want alright)
    Oh If that's what you want alright Writer/s: REGINALD PERRY, SHAFFER SMITH
