Christina: No Time for the Rain

NO TIME FOR THE RAIN

I haven't gotten time for the pain
I haven't got time for the rain;
Carly Simon sang it
but I disagree with her refrain:
You haven't got time for the living
if you don't have a drenching of rain
if you haven't been scarred by the words
that make for the heart-wrenching pain.
The thing that you need to remember
is that after the rain and the pain;
If you're lucky you get an "I'm sorry"
or sunshine that dries puddles of rain.
