I Can’t Stand The Rain Lyrics

I can’t stand the rain
Against my window
Bringing back sweet memories

I can’t stand the rain
Against my window
’cause he ain’t here with me

Hey window pane
Tell me do you remember
How sweet it used to be
When we were together
Everything was so grand
Now that we’ve parted
There’s just one sound that I just can’t stand

I can’t stand the rain
Against my window
Bringing back sweet memories

I can’t stand the rain
Against my window
’cause he ain’t here with me

When we were together
Everything was so grand
Now that we’ve parted
There’s just one sound that I just can’t stand
