"April Rain" as written by and David M Martijn/wessels Westerholt....
How does it feel when all you're counting on is scatterbrained
Every wind that you have sailed upon, a hurricane
Every summer you have seen was filled with April rain
It doesn't get easy, don't you know

Fortune smiles on you
You're not watching, dig that hole deeper
Fortune smiles on you
You're not watching, create your own fate

Count your blessings and prepare to change your point of view
All those days that you spend waiting won't come back to you
Take off the glasses that have treated your world black and grey
It doesn't get easy, don't you know

Fortune smiles on you
You're not watching, dig that hole deeper
Fortune smiles on you
You're not watching, create your own fate

It keeps raining, keeps raining, keeps raining

It keeps raining, 'Cause we are blind, keeps raining,
'Cause we are tired, keeps raining,
'Cause we are blind to fortune's guidance now
It keeps raining, 'cause we are blind, it will keep raining, 'cause we are tired
It keeps raining, 'cause we are blind oh, it will keep raining 'cause we are tired

Fortune smiles on you
You're not watching, dig that hole deeper
Fortune smiles on you
You're not watching, create your own fate

    General CommentGreat song. I agree with the previous comments that this song is about looking at the negative things in life in a positive light, and in doing so, we can create our own destiny ("Take off the glasses that have treated your world black and grey ... Count your blessings and prepare to change your point of view ... Create your own fate"). A very meaningful and inspirational song for people who have gone through some very difficult times. This young talented band will go a long way (and can even become the next Nightwish) if they continue to write songs like this.

    General CommentIt's about someone who can't see the beauty in front of his eyes, and just see the bad side of the things.

    "Fortune
    Smiles on you
    You're not watching
    Dig that hole deeper"

    Clear concept in my opinion :) , and great song

    General CommentAgreed with jureleitor on the intepretation.

    It is about telling someone to dwelling on negativity / seeing through a veil (because it will happen no matter your perception) and just cherish what you really have.
