A-ha – Rolling Thunder lyrics

It's the weight below us
And our fate before us
Like a rolling thunder
Rolling up from under
Don't ever leave this way
I know it's getting harder, but hey
If your world should crumble, yeah
And the rain gets in
Running through your skin
Soaking you outside in

The rain... See it falling
But I don't know how long it will be
Until the storm's over
But I'll wait
I will

Like the years of silence
To the growing violence
Like a rolling thunder
Rolling up from under
Don't ever leave me this way
Wait a little longer, yeah, stay
Through all the night I tumble, yeah
When the rain comes in
I will she'd my skin
Losing it from within

See the rain... It's falling
But I won't be leaving your side
Until all is over
I'll wait
I will

So many lifetimes you've been waiting for it
All through the good times when you tried to ignore it
You hesitate
It's come too late
You hear the sound
Of when wheels engage

When the rain comes in
I will she'd my skin
Losing it from within

    It seems to me, the meaning of this song is about a friend, lover, significant other etc. Is standing by the person's side while he/she is going through a rough time. Life happens and when it does, the negative can take a toll on a person. Typically a person will need a shoulder to lean on; and personally, I think this song is about leaning on a shoulder. The person who is in need was doing ok and all of a sudden (like the saying), "when it rains, it pours". Life all of a sudden crept up on this person and he/she is unable to cope or deal with the turmoil. Like the words to this song, "like the rolling thunder, rolling up from under". Pal and mags, did a wonderful job with this song. =)
