"Let It Rain" as written by Al Jarreau and Barry James Eastmond....
Babe
Why are you still inside
Why don't you come outside
Relieve your pain

Time
We've been killing time
But I don't mind
The city's got me down

And our glory days are over
Yeah our glory days are gone

Let it rain, let it rain
I know coming down can hurt
And tonight is the night
Where we leave it all behind
'cause I don't believe that they can wait
The sky's going black, lets celebrate
Let it rain, let it rain
I know coming down can hurt

Lies
We've been telling lies
One more's around
In this sleepless town

And our glory days are over
Yeah our glory days are gone

Let it rain, let it rain
I know coming down can hurt
And tonight is the night
Where we leave it all behind
'cause I don't believe that they can wait
The sky's going black, let's celebrate
Let it rain, let it rain
I know coming down can hurt

And our glory days are over
Yeah our glory days are gone

Let it rain, let it rain
I know coming down can hurt
And tonight is the night
Where we leave it all behind
'cause I don't believe that they can wait
The sky's going black, let's celebrate
Let it rain, let it rain
I know coming down can hurt

    General CommentThis song talks of coming down but conversely, it brings me up. I love how it starts off slow and just hits you with intensity.

    My InterpretationMy first guess is that it has something to do with drugs, but...I think it's more like he's just saying "Yeah, I know--something bad happened*, you feel like shit right now, and you don't wanna do anything but sit around. I know how that feels. But you're not going to feel better if you do that, so, come on, let's go do something fun instead."

    *I'm inclined to guess it's a breakup, but it could be anything, really.
