Perhaps...

I'm only happy when it rains
I'm only happy when it's complicated
And though I know you can't appreciate it
I'm only happy when it rains

You know I love it when the news is bad
Why it feels so good to feel so sad
I'm only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me
Pour your misery down
Pour your misery down on me

I'm only happy when it rains
I feel good when things are going wrong
I only listen to the sad, sad songs
I'm only happy when it rains

I only smile in the dark
My only comfort is the night gone black
I didn't accidentally tell you that
I'm only happy when it rains

You'll get the message by the time I'm through
When I complain about me and you
I'm only happy when it rains

Pour your misery down
(Pour your misery down)
Pour your misery down on me
(Pour your misery down)

You can keep it over me
As long as you don't care
I'm only happy when it rains

You wanna hear about my new obsession?
I'm riding high upon a deep depression
I'm only happy when it rains

Pour some misery down on me
I'm only happy when it rains

Oh, wow, I really like that. I'll have to check out more by them.

Also, Ikuni says the video reminds her of Niji (I agree).

I've often wondered if you and Ikuni knew and/or liked Garbage. It's one of my husband's favorite bands. The lead singer, Shirley Manson, has that great voice and her lyrics are always thought provoking. "Only Happy When it Rains" came out 95/96 and "Niji" came out 96/97, so there's kind of a reason.
