Lyrics

I don't need the rain to know how to cry.
I'd do it the same even if I were dry.
But to add to it all I've got rivers in my shoes.
And I don't need the birds to teach me to fly.
You just kick up some dirt and you look to the sky.
Well, that's easy to say, but it's hard to do.

Love, if you look, is a function of time
Like a page in a book that's a day in your life.
And that's all well and good if that's the page he's on too.
And leavin is way more than turnin a bend:
It's chancin you may never find love again.
Well, that's easy to say, but it's hard to do.

It's sayin you don't want his eyes upon you.
And who can say that they don't like bein known?
It's sayin you don't want his arms around you.
And I can't say I'm better off alone. No no,

The matter is not if it matters enough
How flattered I got when you spoke of your love.
Or whether I think your intentions are true.
The issue is can I just cast you aside
With that tissue in hand and those stars in your eyes
Man, that's easy to say but it's hard to do.

It's sayin you don't need a good companion.
And I don't need to tell ya, you know that I do.
I'm choosin between leapin from a canyon
Or sayin I'm content here with this view.

And I don't need the rain to know how to cry.
I'd do it the same even if I were dry.
But to add to it all I've got rivers in my shoes.
And I don't need the birds to teach me to fly.
I know all the words including goodbye.
Well, that's easy to say, but it's hard to do.
I don't need the birds to teach me to fly.
You just kick up some dirt and you tell him goodbye.
Well, that's easy to say, but it's hard to do.
