"Rain" as written by and Ian Hunter....
Take a photograph, it'll be the last
Not a dollar or a crowd could ever keep me here
I don't have a past, I just have a chance
Not a family or honest plea remains to say

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
All the world is waiting for the sun

Is it you I want, or just the notion of
A heart to wrap around so I can find my way around
Safe to say from here, you're getting closer now
We are never sad, cause we are not allowed to be

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
All the world is waiting for the sun

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
All the world is waiting for the sun

To lie here under you is all that I could ever do
To lie here under you is all

To lie here under you is all that I could ever do
To lie here under you is all

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
All the world is waiting for the sun

Rain, rain, go away
Come again another day
All the world is waiting for the sun

All the world is waiting for the sun
All the world is waiting for the sun

    General CommentThis song means a lot to me. It's all about wishing the bad days, bad times, would just go away. Wishing that the good times would come. Its also about feeling helpless about the situation you find yourself in.

    General Commenti think it's a song about being on the road as a rock star... and what a mixed blessing it is. "We are never sad because we are not allowed to be". It can be very depressing and melancholy to be on the road, away from loved ones for months at a time.

    This is a breathtakingly beautiful song.

    My InterpretationI like to beleive every song has a meaning...this song i beleive is from the standpoint of a person who is in a situation that is less than enjoyable to say the least and is looking for a way out. This song has great power in its lyrics lake so many Breaking Ben songs do. the chorus is simply put: in these hard times were all in pain but you wont find anyone who would admit it, hense the lyrics "we are never sad because we are not allowed to be" i say this as you can imagine in a very personal sense and im sure now thinking of a time where you felt the same. we have all had these moments and we are all looking for the sun to come out and save us. "All the world is waiting for the sun"

    General CommentI think the song is about being stuck in a situation that you don't like... it can be a relationship, or just being stranded somewhere... you're waiting for a nicer day or thing so you can get out of there, and move on to better things...
