"Raining Again" as written by and Richard Melville Hall....
Never know but nothing less
Couldn't see that I have guessed
Couldn't see, couldn't stay away

I never even stopped to dream and
That Id see anything and
The world is coming out so cold

Oh, and it's raining again
Light on your car light, bullets on tin
Oh, and its raining again
Open the door and pulling me in

Nothing here but nothing less
Cold heart is stuck in this
Couldn't say the kindest words we knew

Everything I tried to say but
no one listens anyway
I had to give up all that I knew

Oh, and it's raining again
Light on your car light, bullets on tin
Oh, and its raining again
Open the door and pulling me in

Oh, and it's raining
Raining again
Oh, and it's raining
Raining again

Nothing here but nothing less
Everything we both regret
Couldn't say the kindest words we knew
Cause it was winter time and
We wanted some more time and
We watched the girls try something knew

We didn't even stopped to see that
That It was breaking me and
the world is coming out so cold
What you want you couldn't get, you
Couldn't wait for something less, you
had to give up everything you knew

[Repeat: x2]
Oh, and it's raining again
Light on your car light, bullets on tin
Oh, and its raining again
Open the door and pulling me in

[Repeat: x5]
Sadness like water raining down
Raining down, raining down, raining down

Oh, and it's raining
Raining again
Oh, and it's raining
Raining again

    General Commenti think this song is about war...
    not rain water, ran bullets or bombs..
    think of it like that and everything makes sence

    General CommentI think its about a relationship and how he tried to make it work, but how its all fallen apart. At the first he doesn't know or see it falling apart and wants to stay in it:

    "Coudln't see that I had guessed,
    Couldn't see, couldn't stay away"

    Then he talks about how his relationship was empty, but he stayed in it thinking it would improve, even though he doesn't realise it. Because of this, he's stuck in the relationship.

    "Nothing here but nothing less
    Cold heart stuck in this
    Couldn't say the kindest words we knew"

    Then it goes on to say how he had to give it up as it wasn't working for him:

    "Didn't even stopped to see that
    That it was breaking me and
    the world is coming out so cold"

    The ending line is talking about how he feels now that its all stripped away. Now the relationship has ended, its like its started raining again.

    General CommentI agree with mralchemist to a certain extent...but the main thing I believe in differently is that the guy in the song KNOWS the relation is going down the crapper so to speak:

    "Never know but nothing less
    Couldn't see that I had guessed
    Couldn't see, couldn't stay away"

    the 1st verse to me means that the girl has problems with the relationship (doesn't know what she wants, but wants nothing less than a perfect relationship), and the guy is guessing what's wrong and giving her all the signs, but she doesn't see them

    Therefore, with this interpretation, it is essential to the meaning that she is dragging the guy into the rain (aka sadness of the relationship), and even though they both want to get through by "lighting up the car lights", they're still stuck in the rain. It is also evident that he wants the relationship to work when he says:

    "Didn't even stopped to see that
    That it was breaking me and
    the world is coming out so cold"

    He keeps on truckin', but since he's being dragged into the rain, and it's effecting him.

    The title also implies that this has happened either in this relationship or another since it is raining AGAIN
