"Rain" as written by James Andrew Mankey, Johnette Lin Napolitano and Michael Murphy....
Thought I heard a footstep
Thought I heard the phone
Standing on the doorstep
Listening alone
And all I hear is rain

Thought I saw your headlight
Thought I heard your car
Shadows on the streetlights
Fog and nothing more
And all I hear is rain

And things I tried to say
Tried as many times
This rain is falling from my eyes
These kinds of days (I really miss you now)
Seasons are changed again (I really miss you now)
I search in vain
I wonder where you are
Watching the rain
And it makes me remember
Things I tried to say

Laughing at the window
Thought I saw your face
Only cloudy images
On my window pane
And all I hear is rain

And things I tried to say

    General CommentI think its pretty obvious what this song means..

    For me personally I think it was written specifically for me. A recent break up with a girlfriend, a cold november rain, standing on the porch, reflecting back on where I screwed up, and all that jazz.

    not sure when this song came out, I didn't hear it until recently, but it reminds me of October/november 1994 and a girl named Becky.

    General CommentThis was a song Johnette did with an early version of Concrete Blonde called Dream 6, the album(yes it was that long ago)was never released in the US. However the song appeared in the soundtrack of a terrible movie called "The Party Animal" the only saving grace of the movie was the soundtrack that included this song, along with the Buzzcocks, REM, the fleshtones, and Dream 6.
