When she turned away
You know it was just in time
'Cause I'd used up all my strength
And you can't let a woman see you cryin'

And you know it's real
She's not gonna change her mind
You chose not to change your ways
Though she begged you a thousand times

And you don't understand
And you want to be a man about it
In time you'll learn to live without it
And you know that you'll survive but still sometimes you doubt it

If you can stand a little rain
You're gonna grow again
'Cause you know that when love dies
The heart survives

You stare at the empty walls
Inside of this vacant home
You walk through these hollow halls
And at night you sleep alone

And you don't understand
And you want to be a man about it
In time you'll learn to live without it
And you know that you'll survive but still sometimes you doubt it

If you can stand a little rain
You're gonna grow again
'Cause you know that when love dies
The heart survives, yes it does

You've been over it so many times in your head
Looking for a hidden message of hope in something she said
Still you find nothing to make this bad dream end
Tell me, how many sleepless nights will you spend?

If you can stand a little rain
You're gonna grow again, oh yeah
'Cause you know that when love dies
The heart survives, yes it does

If you can stand a little rain
You're gonna grow again, yeah you're gonna grow again
'Cause you know that when love dies
The heart survives

If you can stand a little rain
You're gonna grow again, oh yes you will
'Cause you know that when love dies
