"Rain" as written by and Madonna Shep Pettibone....
A raindrop on the rooftops, a little girl
Dancing in her crystal gown, 'til she must go
A floating palace in the sky is where she'll be
And there she'll stay until she falls so peacefully
I roamed the hills so desperately to find where she can be
But every hill I searched today was empty
Gather all your roses while you may
A chamber in the valley is where she lays

    General CommentA parent is in search of his/her daughter. She's gone missing. It turns out she was kidnapped, but when they find her, it's already too late. The first part is a description of the little girl (maybe from when the parent went to the police). And the lines, "A floating palace in the sky is where she'll be, and there she stays until she falls so peacefully." is the parent telling himself/herself that the daughter is okay. And the last part is obviously, the search, and to their horror, they find her body... I can't tell if the chamber is literal or figurative, though. It could be literally a chamber, and therefore be someone's basement, or it could be a grave dug by the girl's killer.
