Have You Ever Seen the Rain? Lyrics

Someone told me long ago
There's a calm before the storm
I know, it's been comin' for some time.
When it's over, so they say,
It will rain a sunny day,
I know, shining down like water

I wanna know: have you ever seen the rain?

    Rain on a sunny day generally means the end of a storm. I think this represents an end to something bad; the optimistic person who realizes that all bad things do eventually come to an end.

    It was about his brother leaving the group.
