Late again
Guilt free in the middle of the pouring rain
Hair's a mess she said
Would you mind if I spent the night alone?

3am she's upset
It's not you and it never was
Packs her things she's gone where?
That place I'll never know
Somewhere in the middle of the pouring rain

I wake up late
Sometimes I wish I never woke up at all
And I contemplate
I guess maybe I'm better off alone

I'm gonna leave this place
I guess winter got the best of us this year
And the sky's a mess
I'll run out in the middle of the pouring rain
God speed in the middle of the pouring rain

When the day is done and you're not here again [Repeat: x4]
Here again

When the day is done, when the day is done
When the day is done and you're not here again

I'll run out in the middle of the pouring rain
God speed in the middle of the pouring rain
I'll find love in the middle of the pouring rain

    General CommentThe girl is lost within herself. It happens to everyone at some point in their life. You wake up one day and don't know who you are or what makes you tick. It's a scary thing and you just find yourself wanting and needing to get away from everything and everyone. I think that's what happen to this girl. She just asked to get away. He let her go to that unknown place that gives her solace but then realizes that she's going to need someone eventually to help her get out of the rut. He knows he's that person for her. So after contemplating he goes after her. He wants to help her find herself and bring her back home and everything it entails. Even when we ache to be alone, we still need those relationshps.

    General Comment"And the sky's a mess

    i think this implies the relation between him and the weather. he realizes his life is a complete mess, and because the "sky is a mess" as well, he longs to feel the connection. (even if "the rain" is just a metaphor.)

    General CommentI've just discovered Thriving Ivory and there are two songs that stand out to me more than others. Angels on the Moon & Day of Rain.

    This song is, just like someone has discussed before me, about a break-up. The girl is so lost (after waking up one day and not knowing who the hell she is and what is it that she really wants from life), and the guy feels unloved because of her confusion. He always thinks to himself that eventually she will get back to her senses, so he gives her one more day. Yet again, the next day she comes back and asks if she could spend the night alone. So, he thinks to himself that he should get a grip of himself, be a man, and just get out of this 'unhealthy' relationship and find himself a true love in the 'rain'. Although the image of him finding a new love in the rain is quite beautiful to think of, but if we think about it, it's a heart-breaking image of someone who is just so desperate to be loved with just as much as he's capable of loving.

    This is why i may disagree with the previous posts concerning the fact that he's going out to the rain to find his confused girlfriend. I think it's the image he's placing in his mind that, just tomorrow, he'll be able to get out to the rain and find a new love who could eventually be sure of her love to him.
