Even when the rain falls
Even when the flood starts rising
Even when the storm comes
I am washed by the water

Daddy was a preacher
She was his wife
Just tryin to make the world a little better
You know, shine a light

People started talking
Trying to hear their own voice
Those people tried to accuse my father
Said he made the wrong choice

Though it might be painful
You know that time will always tell
Those people have long since gone
My father never failed

Even when the rain falls
Even when the flood starts rising
Even when the storm comes
I am washed by the water

Even if the Earth crumbles under my feet
Even if the ones I love turn around and crucify me
I won't never ever let you down
won't fall, won't fall, won't fall as long as you're around me

Even when the rain falls
Even when the flood starts rising
Even when the storm comes
I am washed by the water (x4)

    This song basically means that even when your going through trials in your life and you are struggling, god will always be right there with you to help you through it.

    It is talking in regards to their father who as a pastor was accused of stuff that ended up not being true and how he remained faithful to god throughout it all. But you can relate it to christs marriage to the church! God never fails

    It means to me to find the good in bad, and to keep holding on no matter what trial you are faced with

    It's actually a song bear wrote about his father. His dad was/is a preacher, and though he has never really came out and said what exactly happened, it's written about accusations made about his dad.
