"Umbrella" as written by and Peter F Stuart....
Did ya like the flowers I sent
Coulda called to thank me
Well, ya coulda called

And I tried to kiss you,
On Brooklyn Avenue
But you got in your car
Before I could move

Well, I've been falling like the rain
But you've got your umbrella in my way

Fists and fingers
Tongues and Teeth
I wanna see you
I'm tired of my dreams

Tonight's aggression
I could open my mouth
When I finally did speak
You were nowhere to be found, yeah

I have been falling like the rain
But you've got your umbrella in my way

I had the sun in my hand
I had the sun in my hand
I had the sun till he said "Do you like the rain?"
Well, I had it all in my hand
I had it all but I gave it all away-a-a-a-a-a-ay

Did I scare you off
By being honest?
How come we never see the end
Till it's right there upon us?

If you want I'll go away
Like the rain I'll come again some other day

Now I've been falling like the rain
But you've got your umbrella in my way again

One of these days I'm gonna show up
In the sunshine
Where a little sun shower'll fall upon you
Make your eyes look like a flower
You can be my little daisyyyyyyy
Be my daisy

    General Commentthis song is about a guy who had been trying to get with this girl he likes. He tried to kiss her but she is either, Not wanting him, or not realizing it.. I know how this feels same thing happened to me.

    General Commentthis song hits me everytime i hear it... to me, it means that the guy fought himself to get the courage to ask a girl out or whatever, but when he finally did get the nerve, she was already gone... but he's gonna keep trying, because he loves her that much

    General Commenti think it's more like someone who he is seeing or he is interested in is blowing him off and refusing to take their relationship a step futher. he is approaching her all the time 'falling like the rain' but she is refusing his advances 'you've got your umbrella in the way.'

    General Commenti agree w/aniota, he keeps pushing himself on her but she's refusing either because she doesn't want to or just doesn't know it yet...but he'll keep trying because he loves her so much "but like the rain i'll come again some other day"

    General Commentthis guy is falling in love with a girl
    "i've been falling like the rain"
    but she won't let him in...she's not returning the feelings or letting him love her.
    "but you've got your umbrella in my way"
    he had everything he could have wanted, maybe another girl or something.."i had the sun in my hands"...but he gave it all up for her..either because he's so in love with her, or because she didn't approve..."till you said you like the rain"
    and even though she won't let him love her, he's going to keep trying.
