"Rain on Me" as written by Irving Lorenzo, Andre Parker, Burt Bacharach, Hal David and Ashanti Douglas....
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm

I'm lookin' in the mirror
At this woman down and out
She's internally dyin'
I know this was not what love's about

I don't wanna be this woman
The second time around
'Cause I'm wakin' up screamin', no longer believin'
That I'm gonna be around

And over and over I tried
Yet over and over you lied
Gettin' over and over my pride, yeah
I don't know why

And over and over I tried
Yet over and over you lied
Gettin' over and over my pride, yeah
I don't know why

Rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe
Baby, just rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe, no

See, I don't want to hold my pillow late at night no more
I'm tossin' and turnin' and thinkin' 'bout burnin' down these walls
I-I don't wanna fuel this fire no more, no more, no more
See, I made up my mind 'cause I've wasted my time
Ain't nothin' here to keep me warm

And over and over I tried
Yet over and over you lied
Gettin' over and over my pride, yeah
I don't know why

And over and over I tried
Yet over and over you lied
Gettin' over and over my pride, yeah
I cried, I cried, I cried, I cried, I cried

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe
Baby, just rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe, no

I'm so tired of the rain
In my life
And I'm so tired of the strain
And now you're gonna lie

Sometimes I can't sleep at night and
This here it just don't seem right and
Sometimes I just wonder why I
Almost let my life go by

Sometimes I can't sleep at night and
This here it just don't seem right and
Sometimes I just wonder why I
Almost let my life go by

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe
Baby, just rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe, no

Rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe
Baby, just rain on me
Lord, won't you take this pain from me
I don't wanna live, I don't wanna breathe, no

Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
Ooh, ooh, ooh

    General Commentbeautiful song.
    its about everything getting on top of her and depressing her, she doesn't reconise who she is anymore, shes fed up of it and just wants all the pain to go away.
    great beat, great voice, great lyrics.

    General CommentBad relationship. You want things to work so bad but you know it's not going to. You gotta end it but don't know if your strong enough. You just want the pain to go away, washed away with the rain to start clean.
