"Don't Always Look At The Rain" as written by and Howard Jones....
Some people I know have given up on their lives
Drowning their sorrows, and mumblin', and forgot the fight
We can tip the balance we can break those barriers down
Little things count as much as the big and turn it all around

And it's oh, don't always look at the rain
No, don't look at the rain

Some people I know have lost their feel for mystery
They say everything has got to be proved, this isn't a nursery
And joseph who's five years old, stops fights in his playground yard
No more fights and bigotry, oh is it so hard

And it's oh, don't always look at the rain
No, don't always look at the rain
Ha, don't always look at the rain

And tell me, is it a crime to have an ideal or two
Evolving takes it's time, we can't do it all in one go
Doesn't have to drive us all mad, we can only do our best
Let the mind shut up, and the heart do the rest

    Song MeaningThe meaning here is more obvious when you realize the Howard Jones is a Buddhist. Life may be pain, but there are bright spots, little things that can make all the difference.

    Sometimes it may be attractive to stop and focus on all the bad things in this life, but Howard suggests that we don't stop for long, that we continue to work toward improving ourselves and our outlook on life.
