"Rain Song" as written by and Ronald Ward....
When it rains I don't mind
Let me stand here all night
Did she take her whole life
Let me know she's alright

And every time it rains
I feel her holding me
And everytime it rains
Are the angels crying

I'll stay strong, I'll be fine
Carry on with my life
I still stare at the sky
Pray for rain, all the time
Why'd you run? Did you hide
Why'd you leave, no good bye
When the clouds, take the sky
Does a soul, give you life?

And every time it rains
I feel her holding me
And everytime it rains
Are the angels crying
And every time it rains
I feel her holding me
And everytime it rains
All the angels cry for you

I'll never be the same
I'll never be the same
be the same
be the same
be the same

And every time it rains
I feel her holding me
And everytime it rains
Are the angels crying
And every time it rains
I feel her holding me
And everytime it rains
Are the angels crying

    General CommentSuch an awesome song... to me it sounds like it's about someone really close to him dying relatively young, like his friends, through something like suicide...

    disturbed child is right, I'm sure, but it strikes me more as though he's singing to a passed lover.

    General CommentIt seems that Scooter really deals with a lot of change in his life. In many of his songs he talks about how he'll never be the same.

    Sometimes I hate it when lovers go in my life. Because when I get out of a relationship I change so much. Though I grow stronger and things are for the better, I just wish I could come back into their lives because I know I can really take care of people. But once somebody walks out of my life, they really walk back in. Mostly because of disconnecting feelings and not wanting to be a part of past hurts.

    But Scooter is right, when you change, you'll never be the same. And you grow stronger. It's what we all live for.

    General CommentAccording to an interview with Scooter from shoutweb.com, the song IS about two friends of his burnt alive. However, the two friends shared a house down the street from where he lived and when the fire broke out, he could see it from his window and basically watched the house burn from down the street. It was pouring down rain when it happened so when it rains, he thinks of the fire he saw during the downpour and his two friends dying.

    General Commenti was guessing a person close to him maybe commited suicide so when the rain falls he thinks of them almost being with him.

    General CommentLemonButt is correct. In an interview with Scooter Ward (whom I would argue is one of the best songwriters of the modern era), he describes how from his apartment one night he noticed a fire. It was raining that night and he later found out that it was his 2 best friends that had died in the fire.
