Rain, running down my face
You've been there for days now
And I can feel the weight

But just as things should get back to normal,
They're not quite for me!

Rain, wash away my fear
And pour me a fortune
So I could just stay here

Just as you are coming back to get me,
Well I scream, "I know!"

Know that things will never be that simple
Not for me, they just stay the same

Do you know I've never been so
Wrong to think you'd just come running
Running back to me, running back to me
Running back to me, running back to me
All along.

Rain, I'm filled with lust and pain
So take me back to three years
When we all looked the same

Oh, rain! Wash away my fears!
I'll pour you an ocean
Through my guts and tears!

Just as things should get back to normal,
They're not quite for me!

Knowing things could never be that simple,
Not for me, they just stay the same

Do you know I've never been so
Wrong to think you'd just come running
Running back to me, running back to me
Running back to me, running back to me
All along

We won't come back from this
We won't come back from this
So wash my hands of this
Wash my hands of...

Do you know I've never been so
Wrong to think you'd just come running
Running back to me, running back to me
Running back to me, running back to me
All along

Do you know I've never been so
Do you know I've never been so wrong, wrong...

    General CommentThis is one of my top favorites on the ep. I love how he goes from mellow to yelling and then back again.

    General CommentWell, it seems as if "rain" means "tears" and it's a breakup song and maybe they want to get back together but it doesn't feel like it did before.
    Could be way off, though.

    My Interpretationsounds as if the speaker's having issues -- perhaps all made up inside his head -- in a relationship.
    he feels burdened, it seems.
    he knows this. he can feel it.
    his girl is probably getting sick of his indecision.
    hence the "I've never been so wrong to think you'd just come running back to me."
    perhaps she came back many times before.
    but, enough's enough.
    he just can't get his head to be with his heart, which is wanting to be with the girl.

    maybe? :)
