''The whole song was about this undecided thing, like here comes depression, or here comes that downward spiral. But then it goes, 'so talk to me like lovers do.'

And capturing that in kind of oblique statements and sentiments." - Dave Stewart

''Annie was sitting in my room, and I was playing this little melancholy riff, and Annie was looking out the window at the slate grey sky above the New York skyline and just sang spontaneously, 'Here Comes The Rain Again.' And that was all we needed. you see, like with a lot of our songs, you only need to start with that one line, and that one atmosphere, that one note, or that intro melody.'' - Dave Stewart
