Yiruma – Kiss The Rain lyrics

RS 1
I often close my eyes
And I can see you smile
You reach out for my hand
And I'm woken from my dream
Although your heart is mine
It's hollow inside
I never had your love
And I never will


And every night
I lie awake
Thinking maybe you love me
Like I've always loved you
But how can you love me
Like I loved you when
You can't even look me straight in my eyes

VRS 2/3

I've never felt this way
To be so in love
To have someone there
Yet feel so alone
Aren't you supposed to be
The one to wipe my tears
The on to say that you would never leave

The waters calm
and still
My reflection is there
I see you holding me
But then you disappear
All that is left of you
Is a memory
On that only, exists in my dreams


I don't know
what hurts you
But I can feel it too
And it just hurts so much
To know that I can't do a thing
And deep down in my heart
Somehow I just know
That no matter what
I'll always love you


So why am I still
here in the rain

    When I first heard the song, it breaks my heart. It was as if, it touches my very soul and awakes all the pains I've had with my first love. The guy who made me feel like I'm the most beautiful woman he'd set his eyes on. He who taught me how to love. I fell for this guy. For 3 long years. The feeling was unsaid. I just let it go. My biggest mistake. I was weak to tell it to him my feelings. Afraid of rejection maybe. He made me feel so especial, but love is far way different from especial. And now, he found a girl. I know he love her so much. And it pained me, thinking it should be me. So I tried to move on. But even though I moved on, I still feel the pain.

    This song reminds me of someone who hurts my feeling for the first time. He told me that I'm the prettiest girl that he ever met, and I trusted him, like a lot, he always told me stuff that make me thinks that he likes me, my smile won't fade away when I'm with him, evert single word that he told me, make me feel like the world is mine, but everything changed when he finally met a new girl, and of course, the girl is much more prettier than me, smarter than me. They started to get closer and closer when the girl started to ask him for a movie. He went with him. Then one morning, the guy rang me, he told me that he finally dated the girl. I broke into pieces that moment. Tell me, if you were me, will you feel the same?

    This song really gets to the deepest part of my heart. My phone started playing songs on its own. This song was the second one it played. I thought of stopping it from playing when I heard the first song but I thought maybe something or someone was trying to speak to me.

    Listing to this song and reading the lyrics really brought me so much pain. Like old wounds reopened. This is me. This is me now. To a guy I loved who didn't love me as much I loved him. Except I don't really know. I wasn't able to tell him. And then he left me hanging. Just gone one day. I don't even know why. But I planned to tell him. I planned to tell him the next time I would see him. But that day never came.

    Verse 4 gets to me the most.
    He was in so much pain. And and I was so powerless. I did everything I could do given the situation but I ended up breaking myself along the way. I needed his support too. I needed his help too. I needed his strength too. The both of us could have gone through it together but nothing. I only exhausted myself. Everything he said, everything he did was it out of love? Or was it just a way to take what I could give to fill that hollow heart?

    Love is not taking. Love is giving. I was ready to catch you but you left. I would have caught you. You know that. I still love you. It may not be the same as before. But know that even when you left me broken, I do still love you. I have forgiven you. I don't think I'll be able to entrust my heart to you again but I am more than welcome to the idea of a relationship. Even if it won't be a romantic one anymore. I forgive you for breaking my heart.

    Wherever you are, I hope you realize what you're doing to yourself and to the people around you. You can't let someone be the one to fill your heart and to fill in what's missing. You'll only end up disappointed when they can't do it. When they can't do it the way you want them to. No one can. No one can do it but you. I hope you realize it so you can find real happiness. No one can save you but yourself. Other people can help but it is you who has to do the work. Not someone else.

    When I hear this song it reminds me of a girl and a boy being in love yet the boy chooses another girl that he really loves, leaving the girl with pain and sadness. Every time she looks at her reflection and see the boy's face, it disappears saying that she should forget about him. Always believe in love and it would guide you every step of the way- qaliesha 13 yr old.

    This is such a beautifully sad song, even without the lyrics. It's funny how a melody can tap into the deepest, hidden parts of us. I know I never wanted to fall in love, and when I did it came out of nowhere. I kept excusing it as "infatuation" or "lust", but it turned out to be much more. By the time I figured that out, he had moved on. Though I tried contacting him I never heard from him again. How do I know it was really love? Well. After 3 years of dating many more men after him. No one has made me feel the same. I guess all anyone can do is endure the loss, keep going, and hopefully wake-up one day to find their heart mended.
