Rain On My Parade
Christian Ingebrigtsen Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Ask me
I'll tell you that my life's amazing
Everything is fine and dandy
With me
No really
I feel there's nothing left to faze me
They way my life's been going lately
I swear I must be going crazy
I'd be doing alright
But for the cloud in my sky

Way to rain on my parade
Coming down on me again
Every time I think you're gone
You hold me back from moving on
Way to rain on my parade
I breath you in and suffocate
So if you're over you and me
Set me free

Funny
How you get caught up in one thing
Even when your life is going
Your way
My head spins
Every time I hear you calling
It seems as if my world's revolving
Around the one who keeps me falling
Coz you don't want to stay
But you won't walk away

Way to rain on my parade
Coming down on me again
Every time I think you're gone
You hold me back from moving on
Way to rain on my parade
I breath you in and suffocate
So if you're over you and me
Set me free

Are you in or are you out baby?
I would love for you to stay with me
I can only let you break my heart for so long
But if you're gonna keep holding on
You gotta show me that is what you want
I can only let you break my heart for so long

Way to rain on my parade
Coming down on me again
Every time I think you're gone
You hold me back from moving on
Way to rain on my parade
I breath you in and suffocate




So if you're over you and me
Set me free
