Listen to each drop of rain (listen listen)
Aaah
Whispering secrets in rain (listen listen)
Aaah
Frantically searching for someone to hear
That story be more than it hides
Please don't let go
Can't we stay for a while?
It's just to hard to say goodbye
Listen to the rain

Aa...ah
Listen listen listen listen listen listen to the rain
Weeping
Oo...ooh oooh ooh oo...ooh
Oo...ooh oooh oh oh

Listen (listen) listen (listen)
Listen (listen) listen

I stand alone in the storm (listen listen)
Suddenly sweet words take hold
(Listen listen)
Hurry they stay for you haven't much time
Open your eyes to the love around you
You may feel you're alone
But I'm here still with you
You can do what you dream
Just remember to listen to the rain

oo...ooh oh oh oh oh
ooh ooh oh oh oooh
Listen

    General CommentIn my opinion, couldn't this just be about the rain? I mean, just rain... the plain rain. I know not everyone likes the rain, and that is how not everyone will pay attention to it but to complain. Whenever it rains, listen. When your heart is calm, listen. Sit by the window and watch the rain glide smoothly down the crystal glass, every drop of it. As if each drop is telling you something, a story. Better yet, listen to this song when it rains. Put yourself into the song... in the rain. You'll hear what the rain tells you... Believe me, it's beautiful.

    General CommentI think that this song is speaking of Jesus' cry for people to hear his story.

    General Commentalso the second part meaning that there isn't much time in ur life to listen to all of God's cries to you and that you shoudl just open up to the love all arond. and to not do what the world does, because the world tells you you'll be alone, but you wont.

    Hurry they stay for you haven't much time
    Open your eyes to the love around you
    You may feel you're alone
    But I'm here still with you
    You can do what you dream
    Just remember to listen to the rain

    General Commentthis song was performed by Pulaski Academy mixed choir, back when we were good anyway, we are awful now. the choir never fully recovered after amy left...she wrote and directed this song for graduation, class of 2000. it was incredible. im a choir music freak and it is still one of my favorite songs. ha...we never thought when it was performed then that it would be hunted down by some random obsessed evanescene fan and talked about by people outside of little rock, AR.
    performance notes:
    if you havent heard the song, everyone says listen at different times, it does kind of sound like rain, very cool
    on "goodbye" the girls are divided into 3 parts and kind of spiral off of eachother. hard to explain, but very cool
