"It's Coming Down" as written by and John Mccrea....
It's coming down
It's coming down
It's raining outside
You've nowhere to hide

She's asking you why you think it's funny
It's coming down
It's coming down
She's leaving your house

She had to get out
She's mad and she'll take her mattress with her
It's coming down
It's coming down

It's coming down
It's coming down
It's coming down
It's coming down

It's coming down
It's coming down
It's coming down
You lie on the floor

She's slamming your door
She's gone and she's wearing your red sweater
It's coming down
It's coming down

It's coming down
It's coming down
It's coming down
It's coming down

Aw no
It's coming down
It's coming down
It's coming down

    General Commentperhaps perhaps perhaps this song is about the end of a relationship [aren't they all? no. sarcasm. yes.] the guy in the relationship has some sort of personality trait that annoys the woman to the point of leaving him.

    maybe i just think this because it fits me, but it seems like that trait could be an overuse of sarcasm or something. "she's asking you why you think it's funny." he can't be serious about anything, and so she is leaving him. it's finally come down to that.

    General CommentThe relationship is ending & what concerns him the most is that she's taking her mattress? And she's wearing his red sweater? It sounds like he was already emotionally gone from the relationship & is laughing because he's relieved & just wants to get the details sorted.

    General CommentThis makes me think of one of those "break ups" where you really don't break up, just prentend like you're going to and then you stop being so pissed and change your mind.

    General CommentI'm thinking the mattress and the red sweater are just like nails in the coffin, things to make it hurt even more. Like in the movies when the person's had a bad day, and then some car goes through a puddle and gets them all wet. Just more little things to make it even worse. Like,
    "She broke up with you, she hates you, nothing will ever be the same, and by the way, she's not giving you your sweater back."

    And I agree, the "it's coming down" parts are about the relationship, not the rain (i never got that before, though! =D)

    General Comment"It's coming down" refers not only to the relationship, but to the rain outside:
    "it's coming down.
    it's raining outside.
    ... you think it's funny."
    The double meaning is funny.

    General CommentThe taking of her mattress could mean she's found somewhere else to sleep. Just the first thing that comes to mind.
