It's holding me against my will
And doesn't leave me still
Amazons are riding out
To find a meaning for
The name, my name
In the rain
My spinning on my Name
In the rain, in the rain

When did it begin?
When did it begin?
Why am I not facing the wind?

My mother and my brother
Are facing the wind.
Why are they facing the wind?
Why are they facing the wind?

There's nothing more to sing about
Not now or when they carry me away
In the rain
My spinning on my name in the rain
My spinning on my name in the rain
In the rain.

When did it begin?
When did it begin?
Why are they facing the wind?

    My InterpretationWell I suppose if you are facing the wind, you are fighting against it and resisting. Nico sees herself in this song has being carried by it, unlike those around her. She doesn't fit in, she is different and also she isn't in control of her own life perhaps. This would make sense because up until The Marble Index, Nico's career was defined by her doing as she was told by the likes of Andy Warhol, Lou Reed, her modelling agents and all that. This song is her questioning this.
