Make It Rain Lyrics

Ah

When the sins of my father
Weigh down in my soul
And the pain of my mother
Will not let me go
Well, I know there can come fire from the sky
To refine the purest of kings
And even though I know this fire brings me pain
Even so and just the same

Make it rain
Make it rain down, lord
Make it rain
Oh, make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain down, lord
Make it rain
Make it rain

Well, a seed needs the water
Before it grows out of the ground
But it just keeps on getting hard
And hunger more profound
Well, I know they can't count tears from the eye
But they may as well all be in vain
And even though I know these tears come with pain
Even so and just the same

Make it rain
Make it rain down, lord
Make it rain
Oh, make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain down, lord
Just make it rain
Make it rain

Well, the seas are full of water
Stops by the shore
Just like the riches of grandeur, oh no, no
Never reach the poor
And let the clouds fill with thunderous applause
And let lightning be the veins
That fill the sky with all that they can draw
When it's time to make a change

Make it rain
Make it rain down, lord
Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain down, lord
Make it rain
Oh, make it rain

Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
Oh, make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain down, lord
Make it rain
Oh, make it rain

Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
Make it rain
Oh, make it rain

Make It Rain Meanings

I think the sins of the father, the pain of the mother, suffering of the poor, hunger, and pain are all references to painful things that he wants washed away or extinguished which is why he wants The Lord to make it rain. And "I know there can come fire from the sky, to refine the purest of kings" is a reference to the end of the world referenced in The Bible where fire is supposed to end the world this time and thus, all the pain, suffering, and sin will end, but he hurts so badly now that he just wants it to rain down deep within his soul to drown or flood all the pain away. The reference to lightning and thunder is just another way of him saying that he wants it to rain so hard that it washes it all away. Let me know what you think.
