She never slows down
She doesn’t know why but she knows that
When she’s all alone it feels like its all coming down

She won’t turn around
The shadows grow long and she fears
If she cries that first tear, the tears will not stop raining down

So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it’s all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won’t drown
And one day what’s lost can be found
You stand in the rain

She won’t make a sound
Alone in this fight with herself
And the fears whispering if she stands she’ll fall down

She wants to be found
The only way out is through everything
She’s running from, wants to give up and lie down

So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it’s all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won’t drown
And one day what’s lost can be found
You stand in the rain

    My InterpretationThe line "Alone in this fight with herself and the fears whispering" gives the connotations of somebody who is alone but trying to carry on even with what they are scared of still being around

    General Commento man im glad someone wrote a song with the lyric "she feels if she cries that first tear, the tears will not stop raining down." because thats just how i feel sometimes. i dare not let that first one fall, or even close my eyes because id never, never stop.

    the idea is to stand in the rain so no one will be able to distinguish between your tears and the rain on your face.

    General CommentI love this song. It tells you to stay as strong as you can, promising blue skies after the rain. But how is it about god or Christianity? I don't want my views on it to be tainted because of this. I'm not exactly the number #1 believer of god...

    General Commentto be honest, I agree with dark-julie, and I think that's partly because of their other song 'courage'. I can see it could be general, and it has some useful messages for everyone, and could even be indirectly linked to the principles of religion, but there are parts of it that scream eating disorder to me. "alone in this fight with herself" - it's ultimately an internal battle between healthy and "disordered" mind. "the only way out is through everything she's running from" could refer to the only way of getting through an eating disorder is to gain weight/eat/stop behaviours - everything you're running away from in the first place. I really relate to it, and I love the last chorus with the almost scream in the background, ironically I'll often listen to it and end up crying at the point when its "and she fears if she cries that first tear, the tears will not stop raining down".
    awesome song, love it - I love it when I can identify totally with lyrics.

    General CommentFor me, this song represents my struggles with bipolar disorder and all the other obstacles that it has brought with it. I really love this song.

    General CommentCool! first comment! nyways, THis song really helps me whenever I'm feeling insecure or bad about myself. alot of times I find myslef holding in alot of emotion. I know that if I hold it in too long then one day ill just blow which could very easily be bad. so i know that i just have to cry sometimes, or yell, or whatever. the only way out is to go through!

    General CommentI've loved this song since I first heard it.
    "She never slows down
    She doesn’t know why but she knows that
    When she’s all alone it feels like its all coming down"
    Totally how i feel alot of the time. this song really helped me to become more.... how to say... better... made me feel stronger a little, if only a while. This song is definatly one of the best i've heard.
