"I Made It Though The Rain" as written by and Barry/feldman Manilow....
We dreamers have our ways
Of facing rainy days
And somehow we survive

We keep the feelings warm
Protect them from the storm
Until our time arrives

Then one day the sun appears
And we come shining through those lonely years

I made it through the rain
I kept my world protected
I made it thought the rain
I kept my point of view
I made it through the rain
And found myself respected
By the others who
Got rained on too
And made it through

When friends are hard to find
And life seems so unkind
Sometimes you feel afraid

Just aim beyond the clouds
And rise above the crowds
And start your own parade

'Cause when I chase my fears away
That's when I knew that I could finally say

I made it through the rain
I kept my world protected
I made it thought the rain
I kept my point of view
I made it through the rain
And found myself respected
By the others who
Got rained on too
And made it through

I made it through the rain
I kept my world protected
I made it thought the rain
I kept my point of view
I made it through the rain
And found myself respected
By the others who
Got rained on too
And made it through
And made it through
And made it through

    General CommentThis is a great song about hardship and empathy. No one can understand what it is like to lose someone to cancer, unless they have lost someone to that dreaded disease. No one knows what it is like to lose a child, unless they have lost one. No one knows what it is like to fight in a war unless they have fought in one.

    When people who have had similar things happen to them, they share a bond that others are excluded from. People who never knew each other before can become instant friends because they know exactly what hardships the other has suffered.

    I made it through the rain
    And found myself respected
    By the others who
    Got rained on too
    And made it through

    Great lyrics!

    General CommentVery beautiful song. It's about keeping sane through a tough period until it passes, and afterward, you can enjoy life even more now that you've made it.

    General CommentI think this song has a very simple message. Barry is taking on the role of a person who's life entered a seriously heavy gloom (rain). He's saying to not give up and stay as positive as you can (make your own parade). Eventually things will get much better (the sun comes out). He acknowledges that others fall into the same gloom (others who got rained on too). He never gives up (kept my world protected). And finally, he maintains his values and beliefs (kept my point of view).

    General CommentI believe this song may be about being gay and coming out of the closet. The rain or being rained on could mean persecution.
    we dreamers - gay people?

    [Just aim beyond the clouds
    And rise above the crowds
    And start your own parade] (gay rights parade?)

    making it through the rain (coming out?)
