Through the Rain

Lyrics

by

Mariah Carey



When you get caught in the rain with no where to run
When you're distraught and in pain without anyone
When you keep crying out to be saved
But nobody comes and you feel so far away
That you just can't find your way home
You can get there alone
It's okay, what you say is

I can make it through the rain
I can stand up once again on my own
And I know that I'm strong enough to mend
And every time I feel afraid I hold tighter to my faith
And I live one more day and I make it through the rain

And if you keep falling down don't you dare give in
You will arise safe and sound, so keep pressing on steadfastly
And you'll find what you need to prevail
What you say is

I can make it through the rain
I can stand up once again on my own
And I know that I'm strong enough to mend
And every time I feel afraid I hold tighter to my faith
And I live one more day and I make it through the rain

And when the rain blows, as shadows grow close don't be afraid
There's nothing you can't face
And should they tell you you'll never pull through
Don't hesitate, stand tall and say

I can make it through the rain
I can stand up once again on my own
And I know that I'm strong enough to mend
And every time I feel afraid I hold tighter to my faith
And I live one more day and I make it through the rain

I can make it through the rain
And stand up once again
And I live one more day
And I can make it through the rain, ooh yes you can
You're gonna make it through the rain

This song reminds me of how the Jewish people suffered during the Holocaust and to me seems like a tribute to the ones who survived. I first heard this song after seeing the movie "Devil's Arithmatic" with Kirsten Dunst.

this was the ong she made because of her nervous breakdown and it was saying how she could make it through the rain and stand up once again. It is also relating to the fact that you should follow your heart just like the girl in the video does.

i think having an interracial relationship is also a theme in this song. mariah's father is half black and hispanic and her mom is irish. it makes sense that this song is based on them, because interracial dating was (unfortunately) looked down on back in their day. I LOVE THIS SONG- btw, being mixed myself... MARIAH CAREY IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This song was mariah's first single after the media's turn about "Breakdown". The single stayed on the dance (billboard) charts for over 80 weeks!
