Rainbows without rain

Why can't there be rainbows without rain.
Why can't there be love without pain.
Why at the end of the storm
will another rain cloud start to form.

Tell me where did I go wrong, there must be somethin' I don't know.
It wasn't me who started this storm, and yet it's me who has to go.
I just felt the winds of change, and when I tried to warn you.
You made me feel I was to blame, I guess I wont try anymore.

I just want an end to this war.
I'm too tired to fight anymore.
I want love without pain.
I want rainbows without rain.

And as the bullets rain down on my head, I look to the heavens and wonder why.
It had to be me not you instead, and now it's too late to even cry
I should have seen this long ago, I guess that everyone else did.
Perhaps I just didn't want to know.

I just want an end to the storm.
There is no shelter anymore.
I want love without pain.
I want rainbows without rain.

And when all the hurt and pain is gone.
I know that love will still go on.
Just like the rainbows need the rain.
Love wouldn't be love without the pain.

It wouldn't be love without the pain.....

It wouldn't be love without the pain.....

This is a really great story and a really nice pop/rock ballad.. It's timeless!

The song "Rainbows" has a great music intro in the piano work. I think of a positive when it comes to rainbows but in this song it seems like a sad mood in your words of a search for "love without pain".
