"You Wait For Rain" as written by and Brent Anderson Kyler England....
it's more than a crack in the wall
it's a whole lot bigger than we thought, yeah
a hammer and nail won't fix it this time
so bring on the wrecking ball

it's like we've been drifting along
pretending like nothing's wrong, yeah
we play the game, keep up the charade
but when the river runs dry we're on different sides

you wait for rain and i chase the storm
we just don't see it the same way
you say you want change but you're never sure
we can't go on like this anymore
cause at the end of the day
you wait for rain and i chase the storm

i was never good at standing still
always got a hunger to fill, yeah
don't think you ever understood that's who i am
what we gotta face is we're in different places

you wait for rain and i chase the storm
we just don't see it the same way
you say you want change but you're never sure
we can't go on like this anymore
cause at the end of the day
you wait for rain and i chase the storm

how'd we ever get so far from where we started from?
the hardest thing about this is i still care
you know there's something better for both of us out there

you wait for rain and i chase the storm
we just don't see it the same way
you say you want change but you're never sure
we can't go on like this anymore
cause at the end of the day
you wait for rain and i chase the storm

so bring on the wrecking ball

    General CommentThis song is obviously about two people that simply aren't compatible. They pretend that everything is working just fine, but deep down each knows that it will never work. They each still care about each other, but that's just not enough.

    "How'd we ever get tbis far from where we started from?" This line is very deep. Personally, I have somehow gotten extremely involved with people that I knew, deep down, wouldn't last.

    I think the deepest lyric is in the very beginning, where she says, "When the river runs dry, we're on different sides." This perfectly describes the whole idea of the song.

    Brilliantly done, without being sappy. Just gorgeous harmony.
