Song Description

Singer waiting for the rain as an excuse to stay in bed and avoid the fact that her lover has chosen someone else over her.

Story Behind the Song

Rain is a good excuse for procrastination of most tasks, including moving on with one's life.

Lyrics

Waiting for the Rain

Verse 1
Today I waited hours for the rain
They said that it would come by eight
But now I know that if it comes it will be late.
I wanted it to wash away my pain,
To mingle with my flood of tears
Disguise my burning eyes, my cries, my little fears.

Chorus
Why did/must I play the fool
This time I thought I played it cool
I waited till at last I really knew
Your love was true
I was so sure
But now I am alone and you?re with her.

Verse 2
Ignoring friends I stayed at home alone,
Turned off my phone and locked my door
Trying to escape the truth I can?t ignore.
Too many evil forces lurk outside.
I find I?m safe alone in bed,
No one to play with my sore heart, my aching head. (Chorus)

Verse 3
Today I waited hours for the rain.
In vain I prayed for cloudy skies;
I guess I?ll have to leave my bed and dry my eyes.
Now everything outside looks bright and clear.
Turn on the phone, unlock the door
And check to see, by chance, if you have called once more. (Chorus)
