About In the Rain

"In the Rain" is a 1972 soul single by American vocal group The Dramatics. Released from their debut album Whatcha See Is Whatcha Get it reached No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Best Selling Soul Singles chart. It sold over one million copies, and is the group's biggest hit. Billboard ranked it as the No. 53 song for 1972. The song was written by Tony Hester and was released in February 1972. Notable is the use of sounds of rain and thunder, first heard before the song's introduction, then throughout the instrumental and chorus sections. The song's lyrics state that, because of a broken love relationship, the singer wants to go out and stand in the rain, though it may sound crazy, Keith Sweat covered the song on his 1987 album Make It Last Forever. R&B group Xscape also covered it in 1997, from the soundtrack, Love Jones starring Larenz Tate and Nia Long. Smooth Jazz artist Boney James did a version featuring Dwele on the Shine album in 2006.

I wanna go outside, in the rain 
It may sound crazy 
But I wanna go outside, in the rain 
'Cause I, I think I'm gonna cry 
And I, I don't want you to see me cry 
I go outside, in the rain
It may sound crazy
But I wanna go outside in the rain

Once the rain starts falling 
On my face 
You won't see, a single trace 
Of the tears I'm crying 
Because of you I'm crying 
Don't want you to see me cry
Let me go, let me go, let me go 

In the rain 

Once the sun comes out 
And the rain has gone away 
I know I'm gonna see a better day 
Right now I think I'm crying
Because of you I'm crying
Don't want you to see me cry
Let me go, let me go, let me go 

(Let me go outside, in the rain)

It may sound crazy, but I
It may sound crazy, but I
I wanna go outside, in the rain
