Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande Lyrics

“Rain On Me”

I didn’t ask for a free ride
I only asked you to show me a real good time
I never asked for the rainfall
At least I showed up, you showed me nothing at all

It’s coming down on me
Water like misery
It’s coming down on me
I’m ready, rain on me

I’d rather be dry, but at least I’m alive
Rain on me, rain, rain
Rain on me, rain, rain
I’d rather be dry, but at least I’m alive
Rain on me, rain, rain
RAIN. ON. ME.

Rain on me
Rain on me

Living in a world where no one’s innocent
Oh, but at least we try
Gotta live my truth, not keep it bottled in
So I don’t lose my mind
Baby, yeah

I can feel it on my skin
It’s coming down on me
Teardrops on my face
Water like misery
Let it wash away my sins
It’s coming down on me
Let it wash away

I’d rather be dry, but at least I’m alive
Rain on me, rain, rain
Rain on me, rain, rain
I’d rather be dry, but at least I’m alive
Rain on me, rain, rain
RAIN. ON. ME.

Rain on me
Rain on me
Oh yeah, yeah
Rain on me, ooh yeah
Rain on me
Rain on me

Hands up to the sky
I’ll be your galaxy, I’m about to fly
Rain on me, tsunami
Hands up to the sky
I’ll be your galaxy, I’m about to fly
RAIN. ON. ME.

I’d rather be dry, but at least I’m alive
Rain on me, rain, rain
Rain on me, rain, rain
I’d rather be dry, but at least I’m alive
Rain on me, rain, rain
RAIN. ON. ME.

I hear the thunder coming down, won’t you rain on me?
Rain on me
I hear the thunder coming down, won’t you rain on me?
RAIN. ON. ME.

“Rain On Me” is the second single from Lady Gaga’s album “Chromatica”. On the song, she and Ariana Grande collaborated for the first time. The single was premiered on the 22nd of May 2020.

Lady Gaga explained his work with Ariana Grande on this song in an interviews with Zane Lowe on the 21st of May 2020, “I said to her, ‘OK, now everything that you care about while you sing, I want you to forget it and just sing. And, by the way, while you’re doing that, I’m going to dance in front of you.’ And she was like, ‘Oh my God. Oh my God, I can’t, I can’t. I don’t know. Oh my God. OK, OK.’ And then I did it and she sang, and she started to do things with her voice that was different. And it was the joy of two artists going, ‘I see you.'”

On this song’s meaning, Lady Gaga stated, “This is about an analog of tears being the rain. And you know what it’s also a metaphor for, is the amount of drinking that I was doing to numb myself. I’d rather be dry. I’d rather not be drinking, but I haven’t died yet. I’m still alive. Rain on me. Okay, I’m going to keep on drinking. This song has many layers.”

Ariana Grande shared the following about this collaboration on Apple Music, “It feels so fun to be part of something so upbeat and straight pop again because I do feel like it’s been a minute since I’ve done something that poppy, really. […] You make your music and you do your thing, and then when an artist like Lady Gaga, who has such magnificent point of view, and such an articulate message to send, you kind of are completely giving yourself over to her.”

The music video was directed by Robert Rodriguez and features both Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande dancing in the rain.
