"Remember when it rains" as written by Josh Groban and Eric Mouquet....
Wash away the thoughts inside
That keep my mind away from you
No more love and no more pride
And thoughts are all I have to do

Remember when it rained
I felt the ground and look up high
And called your name
Remember when it rained
In the darkness I remain

Tears of hope run down my skin
Tears for you that will not dry
They magnify the one within
And let the outside slowly die

Remember when it rained
I felt the ground and looked up high
And called your name
Remember when it rained
In the water I remain

Running down

    General Commentonly Christians so devout can turn this song into something so spiritual. I never thought of it that way. The song is just gorgeous and it makes it even more beautiful that it can be translated to suit anyone.

    General CommentI LOVE THIS SONG! I fell in love with it the first time I heard it. I think it's talking about someone who's lost someone they love, either by death, or if in lovers relationship, by breaking up. "Wash away the thoughts inside that keep my mind away from you." They don't want to think about anybody or anything except for the one they love and lost. It's so sad and so powerful.

    General CommentI don't think they want to block all other thoughts from there mind, they just don't want to have all the barriers set up to protect themselves against the hurt anymore. They don't want their pride or anything get in the way. And the only thing they have to remember that person by are those unbarred thoughts and memories.

    General CommentThere is an element of grief in this song. He is lamenting lost love, either someone died or he is just heart broken over a relationship.

    The rain symbolizes both tears and cleansing. The feeling is that rain is welcomed to wash wash away the hurt.

    The cleansing comes when the feeling of hurt leaves you so raw, exposed and vulnerable that nothing more can happen but to surrender to the rain "coming down."

    General CommentMy friend explicated this song in an english paper and his take on it was so astonishing. I don't know if it's exactly the meaning of the song, but it is what the song means to him. His idea was that the song was completely spiritual. The idea was focusing only on God and the water and cleansing symbolizes baptism and being forgiven of sins. I wish I could post his paper word for word as it was amazing. I'd never looked at the song that way before.

    General Commentthe imagery "Remember when it rained, felt the ground and looked up high and called your name" is so powerful here because you can imagine it so well. the melody is beautiful and is obviously about losing someone, whether its through death or a lost relationship.
