I Wish It Would Rain Down Lyrics

You know I never meant to see you again
and I only passed by as a friend
All this time I stayed out of sight
I started wondering why

Now I, I wish it would rain down, down on me
Yes I wish it would rain, rain down on me now

You said you didn't...

    He unintentionally hurt her in relationship, and regrets it and still loves her. With that, he really misses making love with her. I think the phrase in the song title has multiple meanings, but the one that I've not seen elsewhere before and which I believe to central for him regards the climatic moment of intercourse with her. Seems to me that 'rain[ing] down on him' could reference the feeling of the downpour a man might perceive upon his organ in the aftermath of the female orgasm. Along with all of the other bonding emotions that come along with a couple falling in love, I'd imagine it'd be pretty powerful for a man to know (biblically and without a doubt experientially) that he can bring his woman to orgasm. The evidence of this cannot be faked and based upon what occurs (for many, or at least for the very lucky) at the interior sites involved in coitus at that moment could indeed be described as being rained down upon. Likewise, all facets involved could also cause him to see her as his queen... in which case he could also be expressing the desire for her to once again reign down over him ;-).

    He wants the cleansing rains to wash away his regrets about this failed relationship.
    A love so strong for another, that it will be with him till the day he dies.

    Has maybe come across an old flame, or friend whom they've had a falling out. And now he is filled with regret of what came to pass.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    He's calling to the man upstairs for help and guidance.
