want to walk in your rain just damp at first wet spots on my shirt soak it all in soaked to my skin clothes heavy with water downpour how'd i get so far away from where you are and never noticed 'til now if i thought that you'd hear me if i thought that i could speak this is what i'd ask for a downpour i want to know your name i want to hold your hands and soak it all in i want to feel the rain on my face again and soak it all in i want you to come be me share my eyes and splash with me and the puddles won't matter at all downpour it doesn't matter where you're at now you can always come home

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song. The first time I heard it was today, and I keept playing it. I'm already hooked. I had heard Brandtson before, and liked them, but I just rediscovered them I guess! It's an ephiphany!

    General CommentI like the christian meanings I can relate to in Brandtson lyrics. To me this song is just so relateable. "How'd I get so far from where You are?" I like that line, because I know that when you're backsliding, you don't even realize it until you've gone so far you can't even remember what it feels like to be in love with God. "If I thought that You'd hear me, if I thought that I could speak... this is what I'd ask for". sometiimes it seems like you're so far away from God that He can't even hear you anymore. and the part "If I thought that I could speak..." I like that part. "I want to know Your name, I want to hold Your hands and soak it all in. I want to feel the rain on my face again and soak it all in". To me that part is like he's saying he wants to be close to God again, wants to know His name. And the downpour is like the presence of God or the Spirit of God. He wants to feel the rain on his face again and soak it all in. i don't know. I just think it's beautiful.
