When I looked out today
And saw that the sky was gray
I thought about the way
You loved days like this

And driving in to town
It really started coming down
Bringing me back around
To all that I miss

It feels like it's rainin' you
It feels like it's rainin' you

I didn't even run inside
Or worry about staying dry
Besides there nowhere I can hide
These feeling now

Running down my face
Takes me to another place
I can't think of another way to drown

It feels like it's rainin' you
I can't explain it
But I am baptized anew
It feels like it's rainin' you

If I had my way
It would do this every day
I would never see the sun
Because the closest I get
To holding you again
Is every time that sky opens up

It feels like it's rainin' you
I can't explain it
But I am baptized anew
It feels like it's rainin' you
It feels like it's rainin' you

    Rainin you by Brad Paisley. The song means several things and feelings to me. To me it means the death of your soul mate and torture of missing your love every minute of every day without a true sign of communicating with them and not seeing even a little sign (such as a wind chime clanging or a leaf falling or a falling star) the typical signs you would look for. But this song comes along like a miracle! As if Brad wrote these lyrics just for me! I feel when I looked out today and saw the sky was grey I was totally happy because that was a sign that my love was with me! I was happy when it rained because that was his way of touching me again and the rain was mixed with my tears of joy for finally feeling that closeness again. I didn't take an umbrella because I wanted to be soaked with the rain and feel his presence surrounding me and drenching me completely. I feel that's the closest I can get to holding him is when it's raining and then I can have a truly physical sign from him that he is with me and the rain running down my face is his tender caress. The soaking rain that drenches me is like being baptized anew as to a love that's not visable but is felt in your heart and soul and similar to being born again as if you have a finally mended your heart, soul, and mind with a fresh new understanding of a new life that includes keeping your lost love with you always and forever. All you need is for the rain to come down and soak you. When you look out your window and see dark clouds you are happy and excited because your love will be with you that for this moment in time as long as it rains. You don't care if the sun ever comes out and you don't care if it never shines. All you want is to see and feel that wonderful rain. Because, the only time you can feel your love is when it's raining him! Love forever my sweet Getty! Let it rain!

    To me, this song seems to be either about two things.
    1. His previous love left him and the rain reminds him of her. He cannot stand being away from her, and the fact it's raining outside causes him to just let his feelings escape for her. When he lets it go, he feels baptized anew - meaning he is relieved from the pain inside. He was lovesick, now he's ok.
    2. His previous love died and the rain reminds him of her. He is doing his very best to cope with the circumstances, but when it rains, he breaks down. He says it "feels like it's rainin' you" because it's the closest he'll ever be able to get to her until he meets her in Heaven. When the sky opens up, they're closer. The rain represents her touch, smell, love. He wants it to always rain so he can be closer to her. When he is standing in the rain, it baptizes him; it makes him feel better about continuing in life. He feels free, like baptism is suppose to feel.
