Oh, it's raining again
Oh no, my love's at an end.
Oh no, it's raining again
And you know it's hard to pretend.
Oh no, it's raining again
Too bad I'm losing a friend.
Oh no, it's raining again
Oh, will my heart never mend.

You're old enough some people say
To read the signs and walk away.
It's only time that heals the pain
And makes the sun come out again.
It's raining again
Oh no, my love's at an end.
Oh no, it's raining again
Too bad I'm losing a friend.

La, la, la, ...

C'mon you little fighter
No need to get uptighter
C'mon you little fighter
And get back up again.

It's raining again
Oh no, my love's at an end.
Oh no, it's raining again
Too bad I'm losing a friend.
Oh!Oh!

La, la, la, ...

C'mon you little fighter
No need to get uptighter
C'mon you little fighter
And get back up again
Oh, get back up again
Oh, fill your heart again ...

(It's raining, it's pouring)
(The old man is snoring)
(He went to bed and bumped his head)
(And he couldn't get up in the
Morning)

    This is such an uplifting song :) Although Supertramp had two composers that shared songwriter credit, they actually composed separately, much like Lennon/McCartney. For instance this one was written by Roger Hodgson. Roger & his band usually play this song as an encore, the sea of faces in the crowd each with a beaming smile, singing at the top of their lungs. Can't wait for his 2013 tour! Check out the dates @ Roger Hodgson Official Facebook Page.

    I've always loved supertramp, and this song in particular, but it never really meant anything to me personally until now, when i'm walking away from miranda with a heavy heart. But i had to do it... I read the signs along the way, and she could not, to quote another supertramp song, give a little bit of her time to me. As for meaning in a larger sense, it means that even in endings there are hopes for new beginnings, even if you're miserable in the moment. For me, walking away feels like a relief even though i'm sad... I was pretending not to see the signs, and held on as long as i could, but yeah... The hope and joy in this song about endings is perfectly how i feel. Great song from a great band.

    This song is about how life just doesn't always go your way, and not to give up because of it. There it is in one sentence.

    Well it's about lost love. A breakup, after a long loving relationship. Someone is hurt and becomes emotionally weak. They are suffering and need to recuperate from heartbreak.

    Although the song sounds happy. The writer is crying inside but trying to stay hopeful for the future so its not a sad sounding song. I just got divorced and i am playing this song and getting tears on my piano but having a good time too.
