rain falls on everyone
the same old rain
and i'm just trying to walk with you
between the raindrops

i send my echo out
to get your love with poem
obscures reflections of
my love

rain falls on everyone
the same old rain
and i'm just trying to walk with you
between the raindrops

i'll save a prayer for you
so lost and longing too
bleach shared through dirty streaks
wrapped up in clean white sheets
and if you think they'll watch you now
you should know they won't

rain falls on everyone
the same old rain
and i'm just trying to walk with you
between the raindrops
and i'm just trying to walk with you
between the raindrops

i send my echo out
to get your love with poem
obscure reflections of
of my secret power
force down the wings of god
to get your love with poem
obscure reflections of my love

and i'm just trying to talk to you
between the raindrops
rain falls on everyone
the same old rain
and i'm just trying to walk with you
between the raindrops
rain falls on everyone
the same old rain
and i'm just trying to walk with you
between the raindrops
and i'm just trying to walk with you
between the raindrops

    General CommentMaybe about a girl who he loves and claims she loves him back but he never sees it, only echoes or reflections of his own love for her. She puts these unfair and impossible expectations on him ("walk with you between the rain drops") but he tries his best anyway because he loves her. Stretching it a bit, maybe she complains that nothing ever goes her way, that nothings ever good enough but really "rain falls on everyone". She's always looking for something better and can't see the love she has.

    General Commentthe lyrics have quite a few errors:

    "to get your love WITHOUT"
    "WE TRAMP these dirty streets"
    "of my secret LOVE"
    "force down the WORDS ABOUT"

    I'm a real stickler for this kind of thing, and if you don't believe me, check out the lyric booklet that came with the CD.

    General Commenti send my echo out
    to get your love without
    obscures reflections of
    my love

    i send my echo out
    to get your love without
    obscure reflections of
    of my secret love
    force down the wings of god
    to get your love without
    obscure reflections of my love

    that's what it should be as best as I can tell, and I think that the last little bit is sort of saying that he's trying to do the impossible to save their love.

    General Commentno one commented on this song? wow
    i really like this song
    well i really like all of their songs
    Billy said it was about a girl who wants everything like nothing is enough but he laughed so he could have been joking a little.

    General CommentI think it's about a girl (june in the machina thing) who is on his mind, and he knows she has problems (rain falls on everyone- in her case, drug addiction) and he's trying to keep up with her and be there (I'm just trying to walk with you). All the verses are about him expressing his feelings wether he tells her or not, sending out prayers and all that, he's just concerned and worried about her.

    General Commenti think this is about coping with life in general.
    i always imagined it as an ode to freinds.

    General Commentzhockey7 was close. On VH1 storry tellers, Billy said that the song was about how nothing is ever seems to be good enough for the other person when you are in a relationship. Walking "between the raindrops" is a physical impossibilty. Just like making your partner completely Happy.

    General CommentWell, whoever submitted this, put the name wrong. It should be 'Raindrops + Sunshowers'. This is my favorite SP song, and i love the meaning. If I remember right, I saw a list of all of the songs from MACHINA, and Raindrops was under.... oh, I can't remeber. BUT, check this out, you'll laugh:

    General CommentThese lyrics are all wrong.! Look in the Machina booklet, I've not got it with me now, but these should be fixed. It really is a beautiful song though. I think essentially what is being said is the meaning. It's about having problems in a relationship and just wanting it to be normal. The line "rain falls on everyone, the same old rain" is sort of Billy saying that everyone has problems so why does it get in the way of the two people's love? IDK I could be way off, but it's kind of what I think.
