"Umbrellas And Elephants" as written by and Owens Beeler....
Dressed up from head to toe to get by
It seems once again
I forgot what keeps me safe and dry

Into the weepy windowpanes that are dripping with dew
I can hear the rain outside
Falling from the sky and you can hear it

Pitter patter on the rooftop
You can listen to the rhythm of the raindrops
I wish that the sun would come and stay
This is a song for rainy days

Let's go dance around in the rain
Don't pay any attention to the people staring from inside
We'll leave all our cares behind and you can hear it the

Pitter patter on the rooftop
You can listen to the rhythm of the raindrops
I wish that the sun would come and stay
This is a song for rainy days

And I know once the clouds shed their tears
I know that I'll be okay
I know that I'll be okay

Even if the rain always wins
And forces my eyes shut to dream of
I'll still dream of brighter days

Pitter patter on the rooftop
You can listen to the rhythm of the raindrops
I wish that the sun would come and stay
But this is a song for rainy days

    General CommentI think it's about a guy that lost his love to death, which is why he's "dressed up from head to toe" for a funeral.

    He's standing in his house looking out the window and seeing it weeping with him.

    She's gone to heaven and is listening from the outside of his home.

    "I wish that the sun would come and stay" is him wanting to stop crying and be happy that she's in a better place. "but this is a song for rainy days" is showing that he needs to cry today.

    "let's go dance around in the rain
    don't pay any attention to the people staring from inside
    we'll leave all our cares behind" is him going out into the rain and feeling her tears of missing him touch him as a comfort and recollecting memories with her (possibly in the rain).

    "and I know once the clouds shed their tears
    I know that I'll be okay
    I know that I'll be okay" is showing how he's accepting what has happened and he knows she's in a better place

    "even if the rain always wins
    and forces my eyes shut, to dream of
    I'll still dream of brighter days" - the rain will always come and put him to sleep but he's still optimistic about his future without her.

    General CommentThis song is amazing.

    The quote from Leo DiCaprio is: "You're growing up, and the rain sort of remains on the branches of a tree that will someday rule the Earth, and it's good that there is rain. It clears the month of your sorry rainbow expressions, and it clears the streets of the silent armies, so we can dance."
