"Have You Ever Seen The Rain?" as written by and J. C. Fogerty....
Someone told me long ago there's a calm before the storm
I know, and it's been coming for sometime
When it's over so they say, it'll rain a sunny day
I know, shining down like water

I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
Coming down on a sunny day, yeah, oh yeah

Yesterday and days before, sun is cold and rain is hot
I know, been that way for all my time
Till forever on it goes, through the circle fast and slow
I know, and I can't stop I wonder

Know yes I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
Coming down on a sunny day, yeah

Yeah, I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
Now I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain
Coming down on a sunny day

Have you ever seen the rain
Have you ever seen the rain
Have you ever seen the rain

    General CommentIt just about how everybody will tell you "it'll get better" "it'll be okay" but he knows it won't, becuase its been like this all his life, and he can't see any change in the "weather"

    General CommentSo, in English, Silencer commented:

    I think something shitty has happened to the singer and he's asking if you feel how he feels by saying
    "I wanna know, have you ever seen the rain? Coming down on a sunny day"
    Meaning that even though the day is perfect, it's still shit to him and people keep telling him "it's going to be okay."
    (The last sentence, which he finished with a comma instead of a period is just the same thing he stated in the first sentence.)

    General CommentHahaha sweet triple post. Thats not my fault though I just hit back and then forward. Most sites know when the post was already sent. I also love the option where you can't delete the message to.
