The rain is falling hard outside my window

And the lights of speeding cars just come and go

I sit around and watch the clock countdown to nothing

Please tell me, where does the time go

The faces come and the faces go

All the people just leave me alone

But now I stand up here to say

Please don't rain on my parade

I wish that I could see into the future

So I would never have to wonder why

I want to know the next time I'll be happy

Even if that happens to be the day I die

The faces come and the faces go

And no one gives me a chance to grow

And one day I'll just fall asleep

And never wake up again

But just the thought of seeing your face

Is enough to make me want to stay

So even when they ignore me

There's no rain on my parade

Feeling lonely, rejected and homely

No one loves me, no one will ever care

I'll sit all alone, and just stare at the walls

I know there is joy, but the question is where

Why do you all just walk on right by

Even though you see my face, I'm not really there

Why do you feel like there's no need to know me

Why do you pretend like I'm not even there

The faces come and the faces go

And no one gives me a chance to grow

And one day I'll just fall asleep

And never wake up again

But just the thought of seeing your face

Is enough to make me want to stay

So even when they all ignore me

There's no rain on my parade
