"Let It Rain" as written by Kianna Alarid, Neely Jenkins, Jamie L Williams, Derek Pressnall and Nicholas White....
"Get into the groove boy you've got to prove your love to me"
Played on the radio as we drove down south to see our families
You were lying there in the passenger chair sound asleep
I could recall a time when evenings were bright and thick with love
And all the city streets and their lights they were so mysterious
Oh life it was so wonderful it would shine just like fire
How we sat on the backs of our cars and laughed into the morning
I thought you'd come and go
I never thought you would stay
And I'm sorry if I tried to push you away
But the edges they fold and you suddenly find you are buried beneath
A blanket of snow you had no idea was even falling
Now you're sitting on a ouch inside your home feeling cold
Mothing is clear, all your thoughts they have become so hard to find
With a question mark always slumped at the end of these awkward lines
All the simple words we loved to speak are no longer audible
And I never thought with you and I this would be possible
I can feel the world coming apart
And I need you by my side with your delicate heart
So please don't leave me no don't you run
Don't be frightened by the storm so bold and brave
Just let it rain

    General Commenti think this song is about growing older and things changing rapidly. and finding comfort in someone you didn't expect to.

    "nothing is clear all your thoughts they have become so hard to find. with a question mark always slumped at the end of these awkward lines. "
    i can defintely relate to that.

    General CommentThis is my favorite Tilly song. It's gorgeous, the music matches the feelings of the words so very perfectly. I think it's about being in love with someone and then not realizing it until it's just too late.

    General CommentI am in complete love with this song. All of the lyrics are beautiful.

    "how we sat on the backs of our cars and laughed until the morning..."
    My favorite lyric out of the whole cd, heh. This song makes me kind of sad. Reminds me of my ex...

    General Commentin my opinion, this song is about the relationship between nick (keyboardist of tilly) and derek (male singer of tilly). i mean. i think something is going on between them. they both are from georgia and moved to omaha together. and this song talks about driving down south to meet their families. i don't know. maybe i'm just fantasizing.

    -xo, t.

    General Commentand perhaps the storm metaphor is for the realization of homosexuality?

    General CommentWell, I don't think this song is about Nick and Derek, mainly because not too long ago Derek proposed to Jamie. But, who knows?

    In a radio session they did, Nick introduced this song and one of the girls gives a little "aww." Which makes me think that maybe this song is like Nick's baby. If so it probably means a lot to him, which I think is really sweet.

    Every time I hear this song I picture it in my head and it's so beautiful. I love it.
