"The Rain" as written by Mike Barker, Andrew Paul Julian Gamble, Andrew Peter Reynolds and Gregg Russell....
Ah, ah
Akon, Konvict
Ah, ah
Konvict music!

The pressure's building up
I feel like givin' up
How in the fuck am I gonna back my first album up
When everything has changed?
It'll never be the same
Nobody knew me then, now everybody knows my name

And I feel so ashamed
I've never been the kinda nigga that would complain
But it's so crazy, man
There's no different
Everyday is just the same thing

Now it's been months out on the road
On tour doing so many different shows
Head's spinning, feeling like it's gonna explode
And I just wanna know

If anybody out there's feelin' me
I'm losin' my mind, and I can't believe
I let this shit get the best of me
And now I gotta let you know

What's got me insane, oh
'Cause I can't stand the rain, hey
It's hitting my window pane
A little too much
And now I gotta let you know

What's I got my face in the frown, hey
'Cause I can't stand the sound, oh
The thunder is crashing down
Upon my house
'Cause now I gotta let you know

Now I got no more worries now
My pocket's fatter now
Look in the mirror, my reflection looks different now
Your getting bigger
Akon, you need to settle down
Why do I feel this way?

Should I be happy, or
Should I just ignore
Everything that I've been given
Please help me, Lord
It's all over, but
I can't escape the rain

Now it's been months out on the road
On tour doing so many different shows
Head's spinning, feeling like it's gonna explode
And now I gotta let you know

If anybody out there's feelin' me
I'm losin' my mind, and I can't believe
I let this shit get the best of me
And now I gotta let you know

What's got me insane, oh
'Cause I can't stand the rain, hey
It's hitting my window pain
A little too much
That's why I gotta let you know

What's I got my face in the frown, hey
'Cause I can't stand the sound, oh
The thunder is crashing now
Upon my house

Say now, oh diddy, oh diddy, oh

    My InterpretationI interpret this song as him looking back on his career and the people involved in his rise to fame, and he is remembering his past transgressions and mistakes and they are coming through as rain, rain being his metaphor for memories. Sometimes he thinks too much about what he has become, the things he dislikes about it and the rain pours a bit too much for his liking. That's my interpretation of the song.
