"Come in with the Rain" as written by Liz Rose and Taylor Swift....
I could go back to every laugh
But I don't wanna go there anymore
And I know all the steps up to your door
But I don't wanna go there anymore

Talk to the wind
Talk to the sky
Talk to the man with the reasons why
And let me know what you find

I'll leave my window open
Cause I'm too tired tonight
To call your name
Just know I'm right here hoping
That you'll come in with the rain

I could stand up and sing you a song
But I don't wanna have to go that far
And I, I've got you down
I know you by heart
And you don't even know where I start

Talk to yourself
Talk to the tears
Talk to the man who put you here
And don't wait for the sky to clear

I'll leave my window open
Cause I'm too tired tonight
To call your name
Just know I'm right here hoping
That you'll come in with the rain

I've watched you so long
Screamed your name
I don't know what else I can say

But I'll leave my window open
Cause I'm too tired tonight
For all these games
Just know I'm right here hoping
That you'll come in with the rain

I could go back to every laugh
But I don't wanna go there anymore

    General CommentThis song is about a girl that always has her window open for one guy but she’s tired of the games he plays. He probably doesn’t realize that the things he does hurts her. So she’s just going to stop caring hoping that he’ll just naturally come back to her.

    General CommentI love this song so much. It's my favorite song in the universe.

    Taylor is saying that life has woven its way and that she is tired of chasing this one boy; she's tired of making effort and getting no result. She knows now that anything she does will make no difference. She doesn't know what to do, talking to God and herself, wondering how things got to how they were. She's so exhausted of following him, but if he still wants her, she'll be there. She's not in the mood to even try to be happy anymore ("I could go back to every laugh, but I don't want to go there anymore); she's been put down. At the end of the day, she's loyal, but at the moment, she's not in the mindset to be. She's telling herself to keep faith, even though it seems as if she's lost it.

    General CommentI think this song has the general meaning of letting go of hope and trying to move on from a difficult relationship, while still having that person in your heart and being willing to accept them back in to your life if they put in an effort.
    I say this because if this was about a boy, i dont see why some girl would sit around waiting for him to finally try. But friends will always be there, as will the friend in this song, even if you pushed them away after they were trying to help you

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who holds deep affections for a boy very much, but the boy doesn't feel the same way about her. She tries to do everything to try to please him, to try and get him to feel the same way. But the boy isn't innocent at all. The girl likes him so much that she finds out all the things he likes and tries to please him, hence, "steps to your door". HE knows exactly how she feels for him, and yet, he plays with her, and gives her ideas that they could truly be together. So as he leads her on, she falls more and more in love with him, but when she realises what he was doing all along, she becomes miserable. It could have gone two ways, either she says goodbye to him, or he leaves. Either way, the result becomes that she's not ready to let go, even thought she knows hes no good for her. So she keeps hoping that one day he'd be hers hence "come in with the rain".

    General CommentThis song is so pretty!!!! It's about this girl who's just tired of her guy's games and just wants to let go and she just gives up on him and doesn't want to go back to any memories of him.

    General Commentsee i don't think it's saying that she's given up. i see it as she's tired of chasing him ("i could stand up and sing you a song but i don't wanna have to go that far") but if he comes to her she's still there
