called U yesterday
U didn't answer ur phone
The main drag is knowing that
U probably weren't alone
So here sit N my lonely room
Lookin' 4 my sunshine
But all 've got is 2 cigarettes
& this broken heart of mine

So let the rain come down, let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down
Let the rain come down, let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down

U've been gone 17 days
17 long nights
The main drag is knowing that
U'r holding some1 else tight
wanna call U every day
& beg U 2 B near me
But know ur head is underwater
doubt that U could hear me

So let the rain come down, let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down
Let the rain come down, let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha
17 days
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha
17 days

called U yesterday
U didn't answer ur phone
If U'r the 1 who's always lonely
Then 'm the 1 who's always alone

Here sit N my lonely room
Lookin' 4 my sunshine
All 've got is 2 cigarettes
& this broken heart of mine

Oh, let the rain come down, let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down
Let the rain come down, let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down

Oh yeah (Let the rain come down...)
(Let the rain come down, down)
Y don't U answer ur phone, baby?
(Let the rain come down...)
Yeah, yeah oh
(Let the rain come down, down) (17 days)
Let the rain come down, let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down (17 days)
Ooh
Yeah (17 days)

Let the rain come down, let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down
Let the rain come down, let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down

Let the rain come down, let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down (17 days)
Let the rain come down, let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down (17 days)
Ooh, 17 days {repeat}

No more will I accept
Ur misogynist macho attitude 2ward my womanhood
Yes, I can C the fact that U R beautiful
But, my dear, so am I
When will I B able 2 cut thru the cellular surface
That surrounds ur world & make U C this?
That is when I'll let U C my vagina

Oh, let the rain come down, let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down (17 days)
Let the rain come down, let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down (17 days)
Let the rain come down, let the rain come down
Let the rain come down, down (17 days)
