Verse:
E     
I knew a man who was afraid to love
E
to lay his heart on the bathroom rug
Cm                          A
he drank his coffee in the same old mug
E
and sat in silence 'til the world fell numb
E
until the day when a girl came by
E
she had eyes like the rising tide
Cm                   A
he felt a sharpness deep inside
E
the kind of ache that can't be satisfied

Chorus:
A            B            Cm           A
we hate the rain when it fills up our shoes
B            Cm           A         E
but how we love when it washes our cars
A           B            Cm           A
we love to love when it fills up the room
B             Cm             A           E
but when it leaves oh we're cursing the stars

Verse:
E
so he turned to the radio
E
and he went to a picture show
Cm                     A
tried to find someone else who knows
E
all the hurt that a heart can hold
E
she smelled like cinnamon and winter clove
E
and sparked like firewood inside a stove
Cm                         A
wanted to ask her just to sit and stay
E
instead he watched as she walked away

Chorus: 
A            B            Cm            A
we hate the rain when it fills up our shoes
B           Cm            A          E
but how we love when it washes our cars
A            B           Cm           A
we love to love when it fills up the room
B             Cm             A            E
but when it leaves oh we're cursing the stars
