It's beautiful how life before and after meeting someone, this someone that will become your partner in life, is compared with rain and sun in this song. It's true that love makes us take another look at the things around us, enabling us to leave trouble and whatever made us unhappy behind, all in order to enjoy life.

How things change when from nobody, you become somebody. People that you thought they were friends, suddenly appear to envy you and, in a -mysterious- way you become more attractive. It takes only one step forward for you to change in the eyes of other people, but not to change yourself the way they think you did.
