Rain Is Falling Lyrics

Artist: Electric Light Orchestra
Album: Time

Early in the morning,
The sun was up and the sky was very blue,
Without a warning,
As I looked out,my thoughts returned to you
A noise in the city made the children run,
And hide themselves away,
And thunder boomed and lightning filled the sky.

Looking from this window,
A thousand rivers running past my door
Standing on an island,looking for someone
Upon the shore,
I can see it very clearly nothing's really changed,
Then lightning strikes across an empty sky,


Ooh-the rain is falling,
Ooh-the rain is falling,
Ooh-the rain is falling,
Will it wash away the lonely tears,

With their brand new time transporter,
They'll think maybe I fought to get away,
But with all their great inventions,
And all their good intentions here I stay,
Down on the corner where the sun had shone,
The people gathered 'round,
Then scattered as the raindrops hit the ground,

Hello there, the song's massive --
Whoever please tell me what the last stanza is about ??? Maybe it's just poetry but I don't decode a bit.

Great anyway, cheers --

@ Frank

That last stanza would seem very odd/cryptic if you take it out of context :p

In fact, this sing comes from the album "Time", which tells the story of a man from 1981 who is teleported to the year 2095 by people from the future who want to show him the dangers of their time, and how they can be avoided by righting wrongs in the past (his time). In that last verse he tells of how the people who brought them to their time think that he sent himself back to 1981, when in fact he remained in 2095.

Rain is falling is one of the most under-appreciated pop songs ever written it's so sad that nobody knows it or remembers it

I think the last verse meant that, with the passage of time, he meant to escape his memories ...but somehow got stuck there...drifting on the lonely sea of his own past. and no matter what he does, he can't escape. but maybe he likes it better than the present and doesn't want to leave the ghosts of the past.

I've heard album "Time" in 2010 for the first time in my life. And, so far it's the best album I've ever heard. Especially this song!!
