Before It Rains

Story Behind The Song

This woman is in love with a man who is about to move away forever, and she needs to tell him how she feels before he is gone. There is a storm brewing which adds to the urgency-she feels that she has to beat the storm to get to him or she will lose her nerve and lose him forever. The storm is a metaphor for anything urgent in your life that needs to get done-what are you waiting for? Don't let anything get in the way of what you want.

Lyrics

Before It Rains
I'm gonna throw some clothes in a suitcase
Leave the house in a mess
I tossed and turned all night long
I can't let this thing rest
Thunder rolls in the distance
And the sky is black in the west
I've gotta race against this blowing wind
Or live with my regret
BEFORE IT RAINS
I KNOW THAT MY HEART HAS THINGS TO SAY
AND I CAN'T HESITATE
CAUSE IF I CAN'T BEAT THAT STORM TONIGHT
IT MIGHT WASH MY WORDS AWAY
BEFORE IT RAINS
BEFORE IT RAINS

My hands will not stop shaking
As I run up to your door
There's a moving van in the driveway
And boxes on the floor
I hear you've got a new job waiting
On the California shore
I came to tell you that I love you
I couldn't wait one minute more

CHORUS
You're silent for a moment
Then you pull me to your chest
This storm is far behind us now
But I never will forget

BEFORE IT RAINS
IF I KNOW THAT MY HEART HAS THINGS TO SAY
THEN I CAN'T HESITATE
CUASE YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN THE STORM MAY COME
AND WASH THE WORDS AWAY
BEFORE IT RAINS
BEFORE IT RAINS
