"Weather Channel" as written by and Sheryl Crow....
Sunny morning
You can hear it
Siren's warning
There is weather on both sides

And I know it's coming
Just like before
There's a black dog
That scratches my door

He's been growling my name saying
You better get to running
Can you make it better for me
Can you make me see the light of day

Because I got no one
Who will bring me a
Big umbrella
So I'm watching the weather channel

And waiting for the storm
It's just sugar
Just a pill to make me happy
I know it may not fix the hinges

But at least the door has stopped it¹s creaking
I got friends
They're waiting for me to comb out my hair
Come outside and join the human race

But I don't feel so human
Can you make it better for me
Can you make me see the light of day
Because I got lab coats

Who will bring me a panacea
While I'm watching the weather channel
Waiting for the storm
You won't want me

Hanging around the birthday pony
Even though it's just a game
You know we are the same
But you¹re the better faker.

    General Commentthe lyrics are not "There's a black tall man at my door
    He's been howling my name, he said
    'You Better Get Running'"

    they are :
    "there's a black dog that scratches my door, he's been growling my name, saying, 'You better get to running"

    General CommentLots of metaphors some easier to decipher than others.

    I think the song is basically about depression. If you can imagine a hurricane and Sheryl is in the eye of the hurricane "there is weather on both sides". Sheryl has suffered from depression before.

    General CommentThis song was written when she was completely helpless after an operation she underwent. It's about wanting the pain to dissipate, and the sun shine through. It's definitely written from the perspective of a person who is either depressed or lost the will to see any positive attributes in their life.

    I think this song is achingly beautiful and stark at the same time. It perfectly captures the darkness which can occur in one's mind when all is not going well
