"Rain" as written by and Patricia J. Griffin....
It's hard to listen to a hard hard heart
Beating close to mine
Pounding up against the stone and steel
Walls that I won't climb
Sometimes a hurt is so deep deep deep
You think that you're gonna drown
Sometimes all I can do is weep weep weep
With all this rain falling down

Strange how hard it rains now
Rows and rows of big dark clouds
When I'm holding on underneath this shroud
Rain

Its hard to know when to give up the fight
Two things you want will just never be right
Its never rained like it has to night before
Now I don't want to beg you baby
For something maybe you could never give
I'm not looking for the rest of your life
I just want another chance to live

Strange how hard it rains now
Rows and rows of big dark clouds
When I'm holding on underneath this shroud
Rain, oh rain

Strange how hard it rains now
Rows and rows of big dark clouds
When I'm holding on underneath this shroud
Rain

Strange how hard it rains now
Rows and rows of big dark clouds
When I'm still alive underneath this shroud
Rain Rain Rain

    General CommentThis song is about a relationship that is comming to an end.

    "It's hard to know when to give up the fight
    Two things you want will just never be right
    It's never rained like it has tonight before"

    In this verse of the song (witch really appeals to me) she explains that sometimes you just have to let it go, as much as you love that person, and admit to your self that it has come to an end.
    Even if its hard to admit it to your self its better than living in a dream. It will hurt your hard knowing that everything won't be the same for a long period of time and maybe never again.

    The title "Rain" could also be metaphorically reffering to the tears she's shed for her lover when they had to eventually part ways, maybe because love wasn't enough, that is what I get from this verse

    "Now I don't want to beg you baby
    For something maybe you could never give"

    Truly a very honest and simple way that she tells him that the love she gives him overcomes the love she gets from him..


    In this part of the song
    "I'm not looking for the rest of your life
    I just want another chance to live"

    She states that she knew it would end at sometime but since she loves him so mutch she is trying so hard to move on in her life and let this in the past, so she seeks another chance to live, maybe another chance to feel like she did with him. But its really hard for her to let go of him even though she knows she has to.



    I love this song and just like others that posted above me, I can listen to this song on loop for hours and hours without getting bored of it.

    General CommentI absolutely adore this song!
    To me, its about two people who love each other, but just can't be with each other, there's a 'stone and steel wall' they just cannot overcome. I don't find it a depressing song though, if given the oppertunity to love, i'm sure most people would choose to. The rain, though, has an almost cleansing quality. When she sings 'rows and rows of big dark clouds' I see a row of clouds, but sun breaking through. It gives hope of moving on, but not forgetting the past.

    General CommentI love this song. It's one I can listen to on loop for hours and hours and I have no idea why. Her voice is perfect for it, and the lyrics are great; they pain such an image in your head, and it puts you in a... mood. Can't describe.

    General CommentI agree, this song makes me cry. Her voice is beautiful, my favourite part being ''Now I don't want to beg you baby
    For something maybe you could never give''. I think it's just heart-breaking and so honest the way she sings that.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs. I heard it on a television show and went and got it immediately. I, too, can listen to this song for hours. You can feel the emotion so well. My favorite line is "Sometimes a hurt is so deep deep deep, You think that you're gonna drown". Beautiful song!
