"Please don't stop the rain" as written by James Morrison and Ryan Tedder....
I don't know where I crossed the line
Was it something that I said
Or didn't say this time
And I don't know if it's me or you
But I can see the skies are changing
In all the shades of blue
And I don't know which way it's gonna go

If it's gonna be a rainy day
There's nothing we can do to make it change
We can pray for sunny weather
But that won't stop the rain
Feeling like you got no place to run
I can be your shelter 'til it's done
We can make this last forever
So please don't stop the rain

(Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
Please don't stop the rain
(Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
Please don't stop the rain

I thought that time was on our side
I've put in far too many years
To let this pass us by
You see life is a crazy thing
There'll be good time and there'll be bad times
And everything in between
And I don't know which way it's gonna go

If it's gonna be a rainy day
There's nothing we can do to make it change
We can pray for sunny weather
But that won't stop the rain
Feeling like you got no place to run
I can be your shelter 'til it's done
We can make this last forever
So please don't stop the rain

(Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
Please don't stop the rain
(Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
Please don't stop the rain

Oh, we're a little closer now
And finally what life's it's all about
Yeah I know you just can't stand it
When things don't grow your way
But we've got no control over what happens anyway

If it's gonna be a rainy day
There's nothing we can do to make it change
We can pray for sunny weather
But that won't stop the rain
Feeling like you got no place to run
I can be your shelter 'til it's done
We can make this last forever
So please don't stop the rain

(Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
Please don't stop the rain
(Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
Please don't stop the rain

(Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
Can't stop it, can't stop it, just can't stop the rain
(Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall)
Let it fall, please don't stop the rain

    General CommentI think the magnificent James Morrison is using rain as a metaphor for tough times and that he'll be with his girl through it,asking for the rain not to stop is like saying good comes from bad so he will indeed take the good with the bad...I don't know,it's just my point of view

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship, where things aren't quite as they should be but thats ok for them. They could pray for things to change when in reality things are ok just the way they are.

    General Commentpowerful song, i'm pretty sure the correct lyrics towards the end of the song are:

    Oh, we're a little closer now
    In finding what life's it's all about
    Yeah I know you just can't stand it
    When things don't go your way
    But we've got no control over what happens anyway
