"Rain" as written by Mark Tremonti and Scott Stapp....
Can you help me out
Can you lend me a hand
It's safe to say
That I'm stuck again

Trapped between this life
And the light
I just cant figure out
How to make it right

A thousand times before
I've wondered if there's something more
Something more

I feel it's gonna rain like this for days
So let it rain down and wash everything away
I hope that tomorrow the sun will shine
With every tomorrow comes another life

I feel it's gonna rain
For days and days

I feel it's gonna rain

I've tried to figure out
I can't understand
What it means
To be whole again
Trapped between the truth
And the consequence
Nothing's real
Nothing's making sense

A thousand times before
I've wondered if there's something more
Something more

I feel it's gonna rain like this for days
So let it rain down and wash everything away
I hope that tomorrow the sun will shine
I feel it's gonna rain like this, rain like this, rain like this

Fall down
Wash away my yesterdays
Fall down
So let the rain fall down on me

I feel it's gonna rain like this for days
Let it rain down and wash everything away
I hope that tomorrow the sun will shine

I feel it's gonna rain like this, rain like this (so let the rain fall down)
I feel it's gonna rain like this, rain like this (so let the rain fall down)
I feel it's gonna rain like this

I feel it's gonna rain

    General CommentThis song is definitely about life's struggles and a hope for something greater ("Trapped between this life and the light"). The writer seems to see "the rain" as necessary to improving his life and has negative and positive qualities.

    On the one hand he says "I feel it's gonna rain like this for days" which has some negative connotations. But sees the value in "rain" when he says "So Let it rain down and wash everything away". The writer has hope in this process and says "I hope that tomorrow the sun will shine". The process completes itself when he says "With every tomorrow comes another life".

    Knowing Scott's religious background and he normally is the writer of the lyrics for Creed, one can only assume this song has a spiritual meaning to it. The "rain" may be a reference to God's correction, forgiveness, and ultimately is restoration.

    Great album and great song by Creed.

    General CommentDanget. I was just about to put these up. I put the lyrics for Overcome up, and I wanted to see how many I could get off of Full Circle.

    Anyways, great song. I've seen people say it a lot, but it does have many similarities to Don't Stop Dancing. Out of the two on this album I've heard so far, I prefer Overcome, but this is by no means bad. Definitely can't wait until the album comes out. Just a little more than a month left.

    General Commentthis is definitely about scott asking God for help. it seems that Scott wants the presence of God to fall down on him like rain and just wash away his past. it clearly says: "fall down, wash away my yesterdays". Scott also tries to tell that once the presence of God falls down on him, the he will be able to start a new day and everything will be so clear. "I hope that tomorrow the sun will shine".

    General CommentIs it just me, or does it seem like he's saying "Can you lend me a hand" in line 2, instead of "Can you let me in?" I'm no expert at this; I'm just going with what I hear.

    General Commentyah, just some quick corrections, no big deal...
    "can you let me in" is really "can you lend me a hand"
    "what it means to live on again" is really "what it means to be whole again"
    Then in the second verse it's "trapped between the truth and the consequence"

    Great song by Creed, best on the album. I think the meanings already been explained good enough.
    Ultimate summer song for me!

    General CommentTo me he is saying, he wants to put the past behind when he says "let it wash it all away" And he wonders if theres something more out there, but is afraid of moving forward and is "stuck" somewhere in between, the rain (the past) and the sunshine (the future).

    General CommentThis song is really into me. It's like he have a lot of problems, so dark and gloomy, but just let it rain down, because there is hope with every tomorrow.
