One Rainy Day

Fri, May 4, 2012 at 8:54 PM

O.K.......

DISCUSS! What does the song mean to you...how do you interpret the lyrics?

oh man, I'm tired and lonely
Again, why must it be
A man is drowning slowly
And he can't keep above, gone way too deep

Open skies are falling, tears are coming down
Like a drop of rain falls to the ocean and comes back around
One rainy day

Oh so many times I should have crawled when I went running by
And since then I've been left feeling traumatized
Raped and drained of an innocence
A gift we've lost over time
And still I gaze through this one rainy day
Alone with no one by my side

Open skies are falling, tears are coming down
Like a drop of rain falls to the ocean and comes back around
I swear I've given, I've given you all I can
Never will you ever make me feel this way again no
On this one rainy day

Open skies are falling, tears are coming down
Like a drop of rain falls to the the ocean and comes back around
One rainy day (x3)
It's been just one rainy day

    I relate the song about a bad relationship and being lonely. When they released that album I went through a bad break up so that's why i relate the song that way.
    "In your eyes, you can bid me farewell."

    That's a pretty good theory

    I feel like he's saying that he has rushed through so many things in life that he should have taken the time to enjoy and explore.

    "Oh so many times I should have crawled when I went running by
    And since then I've been left feeling traumatized
    Raped and drained of an innocence
    A gift we've lost over time
    And still I gaze through this one rainy day
    Alone with no one by my side"

    He seems to feel the loss of innocence, but in a quick way like it was ripped away in one fell swoop. And now that he realizes what he's missing, he still has nobody by his side to share his new awareness with. He just sits and ponders the loss he feels without reaching out to anyone.

    That's all I've got so far.......

    Great Point Blue, it probably is the meaning of the song, you interpret it well. Just on a personal level i relate the song with a relationship because i just got out of one at that time.

    That's what's great about music, people can interpret songs anyway they want.

    I can only listen to that song once in a while. It seldom rains where I live, so I only listen to "One Rainy Day" on rainy days.
