Rain

By VoiceOver
Directed by Keith McCauley, Annie Roberts, Josh Starita

From Broadway superstar Ben Platt, who played Evan Hansen in Dear Evan Hansen, comes this peppy ballad about tossing out the baggage from past experiences and approaching new relationships with optimism and hope. VoiceOver takes a slightly different interpretation with our music video and features vocalist Hailey Carroll and her frustration with the high school dating scene.

Lyrics

You say you’ve been through this before
You gave away all your secrets
To someone who up and left you in pieces
I know the feeling, believe me

I know the prices you’ve gotta pay
I’m sacrificing my freedom
And all just to get somebody to see me
Nobody said it was easy

My heart’s been broken and broken and broken and broken
But I keep, keep on hoping and hoping and hoping and hoping
That if it keeps on breaking and breaking and breaking and breaking
Them one day it’ll open and open and open and open and open for you

Hey!
I know we’ve both been afraid
But we can’t run from the wind and the thunder
When we’re dancing under the rain, the rain, the rain

Hey!
I know we got what it takes
Ain’t gonna run from the wind and the thunder
When we’re dancing under the rain, the rain, the rain
We’re dancing under the rain

Breathe deep, let it wash over you
We’re slowly becoming lovers
I promise you we won’t be like the others
We won’t go running for cover

My heart is broken and broken and broken and broken
But I keep, keep on hoping and hoping and hoping and hoping
That if it keeps on breaking and breaking and breaking and breaking
Then one day it’ll open and open and open and open and open for you

Hey!
I know we’ve both been afraid
But we can’t run from the wind and the thunder
When we’re dancing under the rain, the rain, the rain

Hey!
I know we got what it takes
Ain’t gonna run from the wind and the thunder
When we’re dancing under the rain, the rain, the rain
We’re dancing under the rain

Broken and broken and broken and broken
But I keep, keep on hoping and hoping and hoping and hoping
That if it keeps on breaking and breaking and breaking and breaking
Then one day it’ll open and open and open and open and open for you

Hey!
I know we’ve both been afraid
But we can’t run from the wind and the thunder
When we’re dancing under the rain, the rain, the rain

Hey!
I know we got what it takes
Ain’t gonna run from the wind and the thunder
When we’re dancing under the rain, the rain, the rain
We’re dancing under the rain
