"It Can't Rain All The Time" as written by and Graeme Charles/siberry Revell....
We walked the narrow path,
Beneath the smoking skies.
Sometimes you can barely tell the difference
Between darkness and light.
Do you have faith
In what we believe?
The truest test is when we cannot,
When we cannot see.

I hear pounding feet in the,
In the streets below, and the,
And the women crying and the,
And the children know that there,
That there's something wrong,
And it's hard to believe that love will prevail.

Oh it can't rain all the time.
The sky won't fall forever.
And though the night seems long,
Your tears won't fall forever.

Oh, when I'm lonely,
I lie awake at night
And I wish you were here.
I miss you.
Can you tell me
Is there something more to believe in?
Or is this all there is?

In the pounding feet, in the,
In the streets below, and the,
And the window breaks and,
And a woman falls, there's,
There's something wrong, it's,
It's so hard to believe that love will prevail.

Oh it can't rain all the time.
The sky won't fall forever.
And though the night seems long,
Your tears won't fall, your tears won't fall,
Your tears won't fall forever.

Last night I had a dream.
You came into my room,
You took me into your arms.
Whispering and kissing me,
And telling me to still believe.
But then the emptiness of a burning sea
Against which we see our darkest of sadness.

Until I felt safe and warm.
I fell asleep in your arms.
When I awoke I cried again for you were gone.
Oh, can you hear me?

It can't rain all the time.
The sky won't fall forever.
And though the night seems long,
Your tears won't fall forever.
It can't rain all the time
The sky won't fall forever.
And though the night seems long,
Your tears won't fall, your tears won't fall,
Your tears won't fall
Forever.

    General CommentThis song isnt about living in a sad world, its much more specific than that. Look at the movie its from, for heavens sake! This song is about loosing the one you love. For the movie's sake I would say to death, but it can mean the loss of someone period, I think. Really look at the lyrics:

    "We walk the narrow path
    Beneath the smoking skies."
    The narrow path is life, and the smoking skies
    are the crap going on around us.

    "Sometimes, we can barely tell the difference
    Between darkness and light."
    Sometimes good and evil look the same; or
    sometimes the lines are blurred so that to
    do good one must do evil.
    "Do we have faith
    In what we believe?
    The truest test is when we cannot,
    When we cannot see."
    self explanitory

    "I hear pounding feet in the,
    in the streets below, and the,
    and the women crying and the,
    and the children know that there,
    that there's something wrong,
    and it's hard to belive that love will prevail."
    The world sucks. Evil goes on all around us,
    and its hard to imagine something as small
    as love can survive all that pain.

    "Oh it won't rain all the time.
    The sky won't fall forever.
    And though the night seems long,
    your tears won't fall forever."
    This is some hope for the world, and for the
    love she feels is lost to her.

    "Oh, when I'm lonely,
    I lie awake at night
    and I wish you were here.
    I miss you."
    self explanitory

    "Can you tell me
    is there something more to belive in?
    Or is this all there is?"
    Can I believe in more than the pain around
    me, in love, or is this failing life all there
    is?

    "Last night I had a dream.
    You came into my room,
    you took me into your arms
    Whispering and kissing me,
    and telling me to still belive."
    She dreamed he returned to reassure her
    that love is worth believing in, that he is
    worth believing in.
    "But then the emptiness of a burning sea
    against which we see
    our darkest of sadness."
    Even after his reassurance, she feels the
    pain of his loss, remembers that he is still
    lost to her. This is literally he thoughts at
    that second, interrupting the peace she
    feels with him there.
    "Until I felt safe and warm.
    I fell asleep in your arms."
    But he stayed until she was at peace, like he
    was never gone to begin with.
    "When I awoke I cried again for you were gone.
    Oh, can you hear me?"
    She cries not just because she sees it was a
    dream, but because its like loosing him
    again. Maybe she could take the first loss,
    but to have him for one night and lose him
    again? She cries out to him. Cant he feel how
    much she loves him, and misses him?

    Its a direct correlation to the movie The Crow. His loss, his pain, facing his memories...

    General CommentI don't think this song is just about the movie itself. Brandon Lee was going to be married a few weeks after filming. At the end, it's dedicated to "Brandon and Eliza." I can't hear the lyrics:

    Last night I had a dream.
    You came into my room,
    you took me into your arms.
    Whispering and kissing me,
    and telling me to still belive.
    But then the emptiness of a burning sea against which we see
    our darkest of sadness.

    Until I felt safe and warm.
    I fell asleep in your arms.
    When I awoke I cried again for you were gone.
    Oh, can you hear me?

    ...without picturing her having a dream about Brandon, feeling safe and OK for just a few minutes, then waking back up. This might be the saddest song I've ever heard, because of the story behind the movie.

    General CommentI can't *believe* nobody has left any comments on any of her songs! This is the only one i've actually heard, i think it's awsome. I heard it at the end of The Crow. So i had to get The Crow soundtrack. Normally i wouldn't listen to stuff like this but as its on the crow its an exception.
    The first spoken bit kind of reminds me of death. I'm not religious. But i guess it could be about the 'walk' to heaven "We walk the narrow path"

    "it won't rain all the time, the sky wont fall forever" Seems to be there could be something bad happening, but it will pass.
    "though the night seems long" Perhaps they are refering the awful thing to night time. So it may seem very long like it will go on forever but it won't.
    "Your tears won't fall forever" You will get over it. Just give it time.
    (I think the bad thing that is happening is that a loved one has gone away for a while, and she is worried that the love will eventually wear away.)

    "Last night I had a dream.
    You came into my room,
    you took me into your arms." She really loves this person and is dreaming that they will some back and hold her.
    "Whispering and kissing me,
    and telling me to still belive." Perhaps telling her to still believe in their love.
    "Until I felt safe and warm.
    I fell asleep in your arms." She trusts this person and feels comfortable with them.
    "When I awoke I cried again for you were gone" She wakes up and realises it was just a dream and her loved one wasnt there at all.
    "Oh, can you hear me?"
    Can her loved one hear her crying out for her.

    General CommentHell yeah honey! This is a truly worthy song!!! I love the lyrics and the music just sends a chill down your spine....

    And, of course, it's involvement with the Crow gives it a little more credibility... Although there were a lot of great tunes on that ST ans this wasn't the only reason to buy it.

    Like you, I was shocked no-one else had commented.

    General CommentThere is so much *truth* in this song. Just thinking about the line "It's hard to believe that love will prevail" brings a lump to my throat, without even listening to it.
