The song is an acoustic ballad that has been described as channelling the earlier works, Parachutes and A Rush of Blood to the Head. The song is predominantly played with an acoustic guitar and a steady electronic drum beat, with a light orchestra accompanying the song towards the end.[2] The song's lyrics, which share the same motif as the rest of the songs featured on Ghost Stories, deal with a troubled relationship.


Wait for your call, love
The call never came
Ready to fall up
Ready to claim
And I'm ready for it all, love
Ready for the pain
Meet under sun and
Meet me again
In the rain
In the rain

Behind the walls, love
I'm trying to change
And I'm ready for it all, love
I'm ready for the change
Meet me in blue sky
Meet me again
In the rain
In the rain
In the rain

You've got to find yourself alone in this world
You've got to find yourself alone
