"Who's Gonna Stop The Rain" as written by Evan A. Rogers and Carl Allen Sturken....
(Oh, oh, oh)
There is no rose without a thorn
No rain without a storm
(Oh, oh, oh)
There is no laughter without tears
No wisdom without years
(Oh, oh, oh)
In a world gone crazy
Torn between the roads
That we must choose
Win or lose
If every soul should lose it's way
If every face should lose it's name
Tell me who's gonna stop the rain?

(Oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh)

Each day another boy and girl
Sets foot into this world
(Oh, oh, oh)
One reaches out to touch the sky
One never learns to fly
(Oh, oh, oh)
Where is it written in the stone
That any child should walk alone
Out on their own?
If no one tries to end this game
Or find a way to ease the pain
Tell me who's gonna stop the rain?
(Oh, oh, oh)
Who's gonna stop
(oh,oh,oh)
The rain?
I said who's gonna stop the rain?
Hey, hey, yeah

How many rivers must we cross before we learn
That the flood is rising high
And the bridge is all have burned
Each time another dream is washed into the sea
It's another piece of you
It's another piece of
Me
Oh yeah
(Oh, oh, oh)

Sure as the blood runs through your veins
Sure as the falling rain, oh yeah
(Oh, oh, oh)
We'll taste the tears of each defeat
The bitter and the sweet, yeah, oh yeah
(Oh, oh, oh)
As the days grow colder
Wonder if we'll ever see the sun
When winter comes, yeah
If no one stands to take the weight
If no one answers to the blame
Tell me who's gonna stop the rain?

(Oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh)

Who's gonna stop the rain?
If every soul should lose it's way
If every face should lose it's name
If no one tries to end this game
Or find a way to ease the pain
Who's gonna stop the rain?
(Oh, oh, oh)
If no one stands to take the weight
If no one answers to the blame
Tell me who's gonna stop
The rain?
(Oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh)
Who's gonna stop the rain?

    General CommentThe lyrics to this are so pretty...i love the imagery. It's probably about how messed up the world is and whether or not it will get any better and if there's any hope left. It's a good song. Anastacia has a powerful voice.

    General CommentI like this song a lot...it says the world is getting colder, people are heartless, nobody really cares about one another anymore and it's getting us nowhere good. We are losing bits and pieces of ourselves. Anastacia is asking how long it will take before we will face the truth - it is all our fault. We are creating the bad circumstances we live in and it will go on and on if everyone will keep blaming someone else for doing it. We have to step up and make it stop, only then will it get better for us.

    General CommentGood song for something like Live 8. We can't blame nature or anything else for these poeple's misfortunes. It's the people that have done this so it's up to the people to try and fix it.
