"My" Song

What was the first song that was ever "your song?"

The first song I ever really remember claiming as my own because it resonated so much with me was "I Made It Through The Rain," which Barry Manilow released in 1980, when I was 18/19. I THOUGHT I'd been through a lot at that point, but I had no idea how much more was still to come, and how often I'd hang on to the words of that song and just pray that I would, again, make it through.

I Made It Through The Rain
Barry Manilow

We dreamers have our ways
Of facing rainy days
And somehow we survive

We keep the feelings warm
Protect them from the storm
Until our time arrives

Then one day the sun appears
And we come shining through those lonely years

I made it through the rain
I kept my world protected
I made it throught the rain
I kept my point of view
I made it through the rain
And found myself respected
By the others who
Got rained on too
And made it through

When friends are hard to find
And life seems so unkind
Sometimes you feel so afraid

Just aim beyond the clouds
And rise above the crowds
And start your own parade

'Cause when I chased my fears away
That's when I knew that I could finally say

I made it through the rain
I kept my world protected
I made it throught the rain
I kept my point of view
I made it through the rain
And found myself respected
By the others who
Got rained on too
And made it through

REPEAT CHORUS
