Rain On My Parade
Eric Roberson Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Laying here girl
wondering if I am on your mind
Cuz when you're gone
it seems the clock is never kind
I wake in the morning yearning to kiss your lovely face
Only to find it is the pillow my lips embrace
Now what can I do
when happiness I find
I find in you, girl
Has it been rain on my parade
every minute
of each hour
of each day
that you're not around
my heart just wears a frown
Every minute (soaking up every minute)
of each hour (minute of every hour)
every day, girl
I pray that you will find your way
right back to these waiting arms where you used to lay
So bad it feels to me whenever you have to go
No matter what I see it's not as beautiful
if I can not share the beauty I see with the one I care
Has it been rain on my parade
every minute (soaking up every minute)
of each hour (minute of every hour)
of each day
that you're not around
my heart just wears a frown
Every minute (soaking up every minute)
of each hour (minute of every hour)
of each day
(Rains on my parade) Rains on my parade don't you know it do
every minute (soaking up every minute)
of each hour (minute of every hour)
of each day
I feel so alone until you come back to me
every minute (soaking up every minute)
of each hour (minute of every hour)
of each day
Show me your love
show me your love
Cuz i'm missing your love
missing your love, babe
Show me your love
show me your love
Cuz i'm needing your love
needing your love, babe
Show me your love
Woahhhh
Has it been rain on my parade
every minute (soaking up every minute)
of each hour (minute of every hour)
of each day
that you're not around
my heart just wears a frown
Every minute (soaking up every minute)
of each hour (minute of every hour)
of each day
(Rains on my parade) Baby it rains on my parade
every minute (soaking up every minute)
of each hour (minute of every hour)
of each day
That you were gone, you were gone
you were gone from me, baby
Soaking up every minute
every hour (minute of every hour)
every day
As if it rains on my parade, oh
Every day
every day
As if it rains on my parade
Ohhhhh
Yes it do, yes it do




Please come back to me baby
alright now now now now...

Overall Meaning

The song Rain On My Parade by Eric Roberson depicts the inner turmoil and longing of a man for his lover who is physically distant. The song begins with the singer reminiscing about his lover and questioning whether she thinks of him too when they are apart. He then speaks about how the days pass slowly when she is not around and how he yearns to kiss her face in the morning. He feels incomplete and as if something essential is missing when she is not by his side. He is in love with the beauty around him but it all seems dull and grey without his lover to share it with. The rainy weather in the background serves as a metaphor for the singer's emotional state, where he feels helpless and vulnerable without his lover.


Throughout the song, the singer expresses how much he needs his lover to show him her love and how desperate he is to have her back in his life. He is unable to find happiness and is held back by a deep sense of sadness, as if it is raining on his parade every minute, every hour, and every day. The repetition of every minute, every hour, and every day reinforces the idea of constant yearning and longing. The song conveys that love is not just a feeling but a fundamental human need, and the absence of it creates a void that can not be filled by anything else.

Laying here girl
I am lying here by myself


wondering if I am on your mind
I am wondering if you are thinking about me


Cuz when you're gone
Because when you are not with me


it seems the clock is never kind
Time passes so slowly when you are not here with me


I wake in the morning yearning to kiss your lovely face
When I wake up in the morning, all I want to do is kiss you


Only to find it is the pillow my lips embrace
But instead, I am just kissing my pillow, pretending it is you


Now what can I do
I do not know what to do


when happiness I find
When I find happiness


I find in you, girl
I find it in you


Has it been rain on my parade
Has my happiness been ruined


every minute
Every single moment


of each hour
Of every hour in the day


of each day
Of every day that you are not around


that you're not around
When you are not here with me


my heart just wears a frown
I feel sad and my heart feels heavy


(soaking up every minute)
(experiencing every moment)


(minute of every hour)
(every minute of every hour)


I pray that you will find your way
I hope that you will come back to me


right back to these waiting arms where you used to lay
Back to my arms where you used to sleep


So bad it feels to me whenever you have to go
It hurts me so much when you have to leave


No matter what I see it's not as beautiful
Nothing is as beautiful without you


if I can not share the beauty I see with the one I care
If I cannot share the beauty with you whom I care for


(Rains on my parade) Rains on my parade don't you know it do
(Ruins my happiness) It really does


I feel so alone until you come back to me
I feel very lonely until you come back to me


Show me your love
Give me your love


missing your love, babe
I miss your love, baby


needing your love, babe
I need your love, baby


(Rains on my parade) Baby it rains on my parade
(Ruins my happiness) It really does


That you were gone, you were gone
You were not here


you were gone from me, baby
You were not with me, baby


Soaking up every minute
Experiencing every single moment


Alright now now now now...
Okay, okay, okay, okay...
