Rain, Her mother gave her a name on a weary day
24 hours of pain then she gave her away
Into the arms of another family
Into a life of confusion and misery

Rain, day after day in her room where the walls are bare
No dream exist in the eyes of her empty stare
Night after night in her room with no one to care
She lays her head down to cry and whispers a prayer

Oh whoa

Oh God there must be some mistake
But no one's ever loved me
I'd like to believe in you and I try
But I'm just so lonely


Rain, she's got a smile in her heart no one's ever seen
She's got a life in her mind and a crave to dream
She walks alone on her way to a secret place
And fills her soul up with tears
Such a silent space
Oh whoa

Rain, one tennis shoe on the ledge, one in midair
She feels a whisperin' breeze rushing through her hair
She lifts her face to the sky in complete despair
And cries aloud in the night with her very last prayer

Oh God there must be some mistake
But no one's ever loved me
But if there's something more in my life you can make
Here I am won't you show me

And then the clouds began to roll
And the peace replaced her pain
And on her face and in her soul
She felt the drops of that same, same,

Pourin' Rain

I need your love to rain down on me

    General CommentI get the feeling from this song that Rain was going to jump off a ledge to end her pain. She was at the ends of her ropes, and she couldn't deal with the pain of being ignored any longer. Thankfully, in the song, she seems to have changed her mind, as "a peace replaced her pain." She realized she's never alone, as she always has God with her, to care about her. What's sad is that this is not a rare situation. People will take in children as foster "parents" only for the money, then ignore them, or worse, abuse them. I know too many people who hurt too much to go one, and they have attempted to take their lives on many occasions. If you want to read a really good book about children who are placed in one foster home after another only to be ignored and abused, read THEY CAGE THE ANIMALS AT NIGHT. Despite how sad it is, it's got a great ending!
