  • "Never Seen the Rain" is about a person who is stuck in a life of mediocrity. Because of their fear of failure, they coast along with their same, safe lives and never take a risk.

    No‚ but you never, no, you never seen the rain
    And it gets you down
    But that's okay

    Tones and I is a supportive figure in this person's life. She understands they've been "pushed 'round" and "feel the pain," so are hesitant to break the cycle.
  • The song was released as the follow-up to Tones and I's breakthrough hit, "Dance Monkey." Like that song, it was penned solely by the singer and produced by Konstantin Kersting.
