"Raining Next Door" as written by and Scott Thomas....
She said, she didn't get the job again
How am I supposed to make rent
And where the hell is my boyfriend, when I need him
I just shook my head, I've never seen him

She says, goodnight
But I heard her through the walls crying
There's nothing I can do for the girl
'Cause it's always raining nextdoor

9 a.m., she comes 'round my house
Saying last night did you have to play so loud
I mean I like your songs well at least a few
But to be quite honest I'm tired of listening to you

You got no good reason to ever be down
You got sunshine in your windows
And your friends around
And me, I've just got the rain

She says, goodnight
But I heard her through the walls crying
There's nothing I can do for the girl
'Cause it's always raining nextdoor

Then she says, I'm expecting a call
It's gonna be my man
So, I don't wanna miss this one
I think he's coming home soon

And then she says, goodbye
But I heard her through the walls crying
There's nothing I could've done for the girl
'Cause it's always raining
Raining
Raining
Raining

Come on now
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on
Come on
Raining

    General CommentI think it's about a very depressed next door neighbor who is out of work and was left by her boyfriend. She cries every night and always hopes that the next day will be better. She convinces herself that her boyfriend will call one night and when he doesn't, she kills herself. (i figured this because "goodnight" changes to "goodbye" and "can" changes to "could have")

    General CommentTo me, this song is about this guys neighbor who seems to have a rough life with relationships and what not and she calls em out on why they sing about being sad when they have no reason to be like she does. I don't know if any of you guys have been in a situation like that, but usually you don't want to be that guy that makes it better cause you're just not interested in makin her wildest dreams come true but feel bad for her anyways.

    General CommentI think it is more about someone who always sees the negative things in life. He is saying that there is nothing he can do, because all she can see is the rain.
