Walking In The Rain
Modern Romance Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Verse 1
Today I saw you walking in the rain, I could feel the sadness in your eyes
Somehow I just had to know your name, cause I've been lonely
I know what it's like to be afraid, sometimes it's hard to understand
Life just ain't worth living's what you said, I don't believe you

Bridge
So listen to me girl 'cause I've been there
And cast aside those feelings of despair
Next time you go walking in the rain
Remember me

Chorus
There's no use in pretending, it really doesn't matter to me
It's you that I believe in
You owe it to yourself and that's the way it's got to be

Verse 2
Life's too short you've often heard it said, Oh I really know the way you feel
Mixed emotions gather in your head, Or am I dreaming
Remember all the good times that you had, All those friends and what they think of you
Learn to live together good and bad, Or am I dreaming

Lyric

Today I saw you walking in the rain
I could feel the sadness in your eyes
Somehow I just had to know your name
'Cause I've been lonely

I know what it's like to be afraid
Sometimes it's hard to understand
Life just ain't worth living's what you said
I don't believe you

So listen to me, girl, 'cause I've been there (listen to me, girl, 'cause I've been there)
And cast aside those feelings of despair
Next time you go walking in the rain
Remember me

There's no use in pretending
It really doesn't matter to me
It's you that I believe in
You owe it to yourself and that's the way it's got to be

Life's too short, you've often heard it said
Oh I really know the way you feel
Mixed emotions gather in your head
Or am I dreaming?

Remember all the good times that you had
All those friends and what they think of you
Learn to live together good and bad
Or am I dreaming?

So listen to me, girl, 'cause I've been there (listen to me, girl, 'cause I've been there)
And cast aside those feelings of despair
Next time you go walking in the rain
Remember me

There's no use in pretending
It really doesn't matter to me
It's you that I believe in
You owe it to yourself and that's the way it's got to be

So listen to me, girl, 'cause I've been there (think of all the good times that we had)
And cast aside those feelings of despair
Next you go walking in the rain
Remember me

There's no use in pretending
It really doesn't matter to me (really doesn't matter to me)
It's you that I believe in
You owe it to yourself and that's the way it's got to be

Life's too short, you've often heard it said
I've been lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely
Somehow I've been on my own
I saw you walking in the rain
I can feel the sadness in your eyes
'Cause I really need you, baby, oh honey
