Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

So baby talk to me
Like lovers do
Walk with me
Like lovers do
Talk to me
Like lovers do

Here comes the rain again
Raining in my head like a tragedy
Tearing me apart like a new emotion
Oh
I want to breathe in the open wind
I want to kiss like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

So baby talk to me
Like lovers do

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
(Here is comes again, here it comes again)
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you

    General Comment:This song is very artistic and sad.
    It's beautiful how each beat and sound in the background is like raindrops. Each tap on the keyboard or pluck of a violin has a rhythm matching rainfall and never gets repetitive.
    This song is really deep and can connect with life really easily.
    I love the phrase, "here comes the rain again" because it gives you that sense of repetition that she feels, yet you know no matter how many times the rain comes, the pain never eases away.
    Just beautiful.

    General Comment:Another favorite of mine.

    The meaning? To me, it's talking about unrequited love. The big key there is, "Is it raining with you?" When she sees this person, she has this big flood of emotion come over her. She longs to express it, to walk, talk, and kiss like lovers, and she's asking the object of her affection, "Do you feel the same way about me?"

    At least, that's what I get from it.

    General Comment:The song is about depression. ("Here comes the rain again...") Alas, Ms Lennox knew all about this subject and used her experience to give us this wonderful song, intertwining it with a picture of romance - the romance she wished for ...

    General Comment:The chord progressions are really clever in this song. I love how the guitar and synths sound together. It's really 80's.

    General Comment:Actually, the two in the group had been romantically involved, and decided to break it off, but still produce music together...and this was written in a hotel in new york after an argument.

    General Comment:This is probably about how lonely she's feeling, she wants to love and be loved back. It's amazing how she 's able to express sadness and disappointment precisely, with such a bittersweet melody. Of course the lyrics help.

    General Comment:The rain is clearly a metaphor for dark times, depression...I think it's definitely about unrequited love: 'talk to me/ LIKE lovers do.' They are not lovers, but she wants desperately for them to be.
