Lyrics

CRYING IN THE SUN
by Brad Burg

[ INTRO ]

It?s a land of perfect weather
Where the sun shines down forever ?
Can it be . . .?
Can it be a land of perfect weather --
If the sun beats down forever
Can you see?
You can?t see . . .

[ Note: The famous "Singing In the Rain" riff begins here, musically, and continues to be used throughout, at times.]

[ VERSE ]

Lying'by the pool
(Flyin', as a rule)
Hasn?t it been fun?
Why are you . . .

[ CHORUS ]

Crying, CRYING, CRYING IN THE SUN
Crying, CRYING IN THE SUN.

[ VERSE ]

Lyin? on the sand,
You try to understand--
What was it that you've done
That left you . . .

[ CHORUS ]

Crying, CRYING CRYING IN THE SUN
Crying, CRYING IN THE SUN . . .
In the sun . . .

[ BRIDGE ]

And if she were still here
You know exactly what you?d tell her:
Put yourself in my place
And tell me, honey, what would you do?

Try to run in my race
And tell me, honey, how would you do
Better than I?ve done?
What have I done?

[ INTRO MELODY REPEATS: ]

Above us, heaven?s endless smooth complexion
Sets the standard of perfection
High . . . . Way too high.
On this earth we shake and shiver
We are worth -- what we deliver
So we try;
Oh, we try

[ VERSE ]

Lying in the night,
Crying for some light
But when the morning?s come
You?ll still be

[ CHORUS ]

Crying,CRYING, CRYING IN THE SUN
Crying, CRYING IN THE SUN
Yes, you'll still be Crying, CRYING IN THE SUN . . .
