Paramore – When It Rains lyrics

And when it rains,
On this side of town it touches, everything.
Just say it again and mean it.
We don't miss a thing.
You made yourself a bed
At the bottom of the blackest hole (blackest hole)
And convinced yourself that
It's not the reason you don't see the sun anymore

And oh, oh, how could you do it?
Oh I, I never saw it coming.
Oh, oh, I need the ending.
So why can't you stay
Just long enough to explain?

And when it rains,
Will you always find an escape?
Just running away,
From all of the ones who love you,
From everything.
You made yourself a bed
At the bottom of the blackest hole (blackest hole)
And you'll sleep 'til May
And you'll say that you don't want to see the sun anymore

And oh, oh, how could you do it?
Oh I, I never saw it coming.
And oh, oh, I need the ending.
So why can't you stay just long enough to explain?

Take your time.
Take my time.

Take these chances to turn it around. (take your time)
Take these chances, we'll make it somehow
And take these chances to turn it around. (take my...)
Just turn it around.

Oh, how could you do it?
Oh I, I never saw it coming.
Oh, oh, how could you do it?
Oh I, I never saw it coming.
Oh, oh, how could you do it?
Oh I, I never saw it coming.
Oh, oh I need an ending.
So why can't you stay
Just long enough to explain?

You can take your time, take my time.

    I think the 'rain' means tears. So 'when it rains, on this side of town it touches everything' it means that everyone finds out. I think this song is about self-harming and the person just found out and wants to help, as Paramore are close to twloha. 'take these chances to turn it around' could be to make use of the help that's available to them to stop. I love this song!

    Well as for me, I guess. She was really in pain and wanted to escape it so bad. She also wanted to know what happened to them and she was asking for an answer. She never thought that the day would come so fast, that everything's gonna end in a jiffy.
    But she's still hopeful that everything will be alright in time. They just need to take time to heal when time comes that they'll be back in each other arms again: l
    So much like my case, fukkin' A.

    Bless your heart you make me smile. To me it's about a friend who committed suicide "take these chances to turn it around" "i never saw it coming"she blames herself for not knowing and wanting to help. And "when it rains you always find an escape..running away form all the ones who loved you...bed of the darkest hole" this person isolated him/her or could more literal now in a tomb. "why can't you stay just long enough to explain" she doesn't understand why this person made that decision.

    Definitely about someone committing suicide. "i never saw it coming", "why can't you stay just long enough to explain? ", "running away, from all of the ones who love you", "you made yourself a bed at the bottom of the blackest hole, and convinced yourself it's not the reason you don't see the sun anymore". Even "when it rains" suggests, to me, when a person is sad: rain is like a person's tears, of course.
    The phrase "when it rains, on this side of town it touches everything" to me means that when her friend is sad, it affects other people too.

    This song about a friend of hers who committed suicide. With the words "say it again and mean it, we don't miss a thing", it's basically like saying "do you honestly believe we wouldn't miss you? ". I almost cry every time I hear this song. In the bridge, I think she's addressing everyone who knows someone who's depressed/suicidal, or people who are themselves. She's telling them to turn it around, get the help they need before it's too late.
