The Rain
Joose Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

There is no rose without a thorn
No rain without a storm
(Oh, oh, oh)
There is no laughter without tears
No wisdom without years
(Oh, oh, oh)
In a world gone crazy
Torn between the roads
That we must choose
Win or lose
If every soul should lose it's way
If every face should lose it's name
Tell me who's gonna stop the rain?

(Oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh)

Each day another boy and girl
Sets foot into this world
(Oh, oh, oh)
One reaches out to touch the sky
One never learns to fly
(Oh, oh, oh)
Where is it written in the stone
That any child should walk alone
Out on their own?
If no one tries to end this game
I find a way to ease the pain
Tell me who's gonna stop the rain?
(Oh, oh, oh)
Who's gonna stop
The rain?
I said who's gonna stop the rain?
Hey, hey, yeah

How many rivers must we crosse before we learn
That the flood is rising high
And the bridges all have burned
Each time another dream is washed into the sea
It's another piece of you
It's another piece of
Me
Oh yeah
(Oh, oh, oh)

Sure as the blood runs through your veins
Sure as the falling rain, oh yeah
(Oh, oh, oh)
We'll taste the tears of each defeat
The bitter and the sweet, yeah, oh yeah
(Oh, oh, oh)
As the days grow colder
Wonder if we'll ever see the sun
When winter comes, yeah
If no one stands to take the weight
If no one answers to the blame
Tell me who's gonna stop the rain?

(Oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh)

Who's gonna stop the rain?
If every soul should lose it's way
If every face should lose it's name
If no one tries to end this game
Or find a way to ease the pain
Who's gonna stop the rain?
(Oh, oh, oh)
If no one stands to take the weight
If no one answers to the blame
Who's gonna stop
The rain?
(Oh, oh, oh)




(Oh, oh, oh)
Who's gonna stop the?

Overall Meaning

The song "The Rain" by Joose reflects on the challenging realities of life, emphasizing the need to navigate through its difficult circumstances. The lyrics start with two notable analogies, highlighting the idea that every good thing in life often comes with a downside. The first analogy, "There is no rose without a thorn," means that every beautiful thing has its drawbacks. The second analogy, "No rain without a storm," implies that you cannot have something positive, like rain, without the negativity of the accompanying storm. The singer then emphasizes that life is complex and that people cannot take the good without understanding the bad, meaning that they must ultimately make tough decisions that may involve winning or losing.


As the song goes on, the singer examines the reality of the world we live in, with its inherent challenges, particularly for every boy and girl who is born into it. Sadly, despite the hopeful possibilities, many may never reach their full potential. The lyrics then call for a greater sense of community and support, emphasizing that no child should ever walk alone.


The song highlights the need for someone to take up the challenge to find a means to stop the rain, to find a way to ease the pain that accompanies everyone's journey. The lyrics suggest that unless people work together, the inevitable winter, i.e., the tough times in life, might never come to an end, and the world will be caught in an endless storm. The conclusion of the song emphasizes that it is up to each individual to take up this challenge and stand up to the blame no one else appears to want.

Seriously one of the most underrated and forgotten best rnb groups of the 90s. So much feeling and soul in the music it still makes me feel the same after all these years. Xx

@OkkyHan

Divine harmony. Their voices are too heavenly to be tainted with this world's fakery and fame, so God called each of them back to gospel. Much respect to Queen Latifah for providing them the opportunity to emerge in the 90s ⚘⚘⚘

@laguy8181

I remember buying this album. These guys were awesome

@xeeng1

Still waiting for this song to be available to purchase. Like seriously Joose, the world could use the beauty that you guys have to offer.

@nicholasjackson382

These boyz were so bad. I wish the record company would have supported them on more projects. They are so talented! Joose, forever!

@MrBlactye

I agree with you. I wish their manager would have done more for them. Instead of allowing them to fall by the waist side. These guys can actually blow and I miss their sound.

@jaconel8927
