"California Rain" as written by Jessica Newham and Peter Thomas Walsh....
We won't build a home,
You won't buy flowers every Monday
Or call on my birthday
I'm not the first,
And I won't be the last to love you
And I do

I love it when you're lonely
That's when we feel the same
You come around, you let me down
Like California rain

How many times will midnight come and go without so much
As a single touch?
How many times will I find solace in the worst of you
'Cause I do

I love it when you're lonely
That's when we feel the same
I come around, and I let you down
Like California rain

I love it when you're lonely
That's when we feel the same
You come around, you let you down
My California rain

    My InterpretationUgh, it's haunting how much I'm currently connecting to this song right now. To me, this transcends a "breakup" song. For me, there's sort of an admission that there's no future in the pairing for the long term at the beginning of the song, but there's a comfort in having that common ground of heartbreak.

    I've often observed in a breakup, that one of the partners no longer feels the same for the other, even though that partner's view remains the same. There's a disconnect.

    With this relationship, putting it bluntly, I feel that there's a satisfaction gained from the karma the other partner ends up experiencing with a similar heartbreak. Not from a vengeful perspective, but because there's mutual understanding how one another is feeling, and ideally, there's a possibility that each can be there for the other to heal. In part, it's why it's so hard, if not impossible to end it. And neither side wants to. May not make sense to everyone... but that's how I see it.
