Well, I love the rain the most when it stops
We can see the big white (houses?) yeah in docks
And we can jump in the river, don’t know if the water or sky is clearer
But I know that I love the rain the most when it stops
Yeah when it stops

No more grey today; we gonna celebrate
You know miss sunshine,
she starts to paint a perfect picture of this river parade
And I know that I love the rain the most when it stops
Yeah when it stops

Well, the dark waves, they start singing together
I can’t believe this change in the weather
I start to hum a child’s rhyme
and all these boats, they start rocking in time
And I love the rain the most when it stops
Yes, you love the rain the most when it stops
Yeah when it stops

The summer is coming to an end
We ain’t gonna let that slow us down one bit
‘Til that sunset starts to fade
They’re gonna drag us screaming from these old riverbanks

We love the rain the most when it stops
We love the rain the most when it stops
Yeah, when it stops
Yeah, when it stops
Yeah, when it stops
When it stops (x7) yeah
Yeah when it stops

Spoken:
I think you’ve had a little too much too drink
Let me help with that
Don’t forget to tie the boat up
Not that way, no it’s a figure eight, yeah
Yeah when it stops
The rain when it stops

    General Commenti think the rain is like a struggle in their life, but when it stops, they can see clearer, cause you learn from your struggles, and everything just looks so much more beautiful

    General CommentThe rain washes away all things, and when it stops, the sun comes out and the world is new again. Beautiful.

    That's why he loves the rain the most when it stops... Meaning he only loves the rain because of the afterglow, of what it has created, not the rain itself.

    He loves a beautiful sunny day.

    My Interpretationi dig TehGreatMutato and bladz opinions. i completely agree with both of you. not only is this song indeed really prettty. but i can relate. i love the feeling of going outside in the summer after it has just finished raining. completely and utterly serene in my opinion escpecially on a lake, or like down the shore on the beach after a storm. just compared to what it just was is a breath of fresh air. i imagine like a hot sunny pavement after a summer rain shower and how it steams. thats the best.

    General Commenti think the first couplet is:

    I love the rain the most when it stops
    And we can see the big white house here in the docks

    He wrote and recorded this whole album on a houseboat over the duration of a week. You can hear the waves in the background on a lot of these songs.
