"Crying in the Rain" is a song written by Howard Greenfield and Carole King and was originally recorded by The Everly Brothers. The single peaked at #6 on the U.S. pop charts
In 1990, the Norwegian pop band a-ha covered the song. Following its success, a-ha became closer to the Everly Brothers, who had originally recorded the song. The band members were presented a set of guitars by the Everly Brothers that a-ha continues to use.
This is one of the few commercially available songs which a-ha have covered. The only others being "Velvet", first released by Savoy, and "Dragonfly", first released by Magne Furuholmen.
Though often given the misnomer of "one-hit wonder" in the U.S., a-ha has actually had a number of singles appear on various charts there, though none anywhere near as big a hit as their debut, "Take on Me". "Crying in the Rain" was a-ha's last single to go top 40 on a Billboard chart in the U.S. to date, peaking at #26 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart during the week ending April 6, 1991. It was more popular internationally, topping the charts in the band's native Norway, and peaking at #13 in the UK Singles Chart, where the band had found previous success as well.
A-ha (normally spelled entirely in lower-case and some of their logos have the letter "a" italicised - a-ha) is a synthpop/rock band from Norway founded in 1982 by members of previous bands Spider Empire (19771979) and Bridges (19791982). The group initially rose to fame during the 1980s and has had continued global success in the 1990s and 2000s. The band is the best-selling Norwegian music artist in history.
a-ha achieved its biggest success with their debut album, Hunting High and Low, in 1985, which peaked at number 15 on the Billboard charts and yielded two international number-one singles, "Take on Me" and The Sun Always Shines on T.V., earning the band a Grammy Award nomination as Best New Artist. Hunting High and Low was one of the best-selling albums of 1986. In 1994, the band went on a hiatus, the same year a-ha reached a sales number of 26 million albums sold worldwide.

I'll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurting me
I've got my pride and I know how to hide
All the sorrow and pain
I'll do my crying in the rain

If I wait for cloudy skies
You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
You'll never know that I still love you
So though the heartaches remain
I'll do my crying in the rain

Raindrops falling from heaven
Will never wash away my misery
But since we're not together
I'll wait for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you'll never see

Someday when my crying's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool
But till then, darling, you'll never see me complain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain
