That indeed seems to be the case with these two former lovers, meeting by chance at a convenience store. Then, as the last verse describes him suddenly being "back at school", feeling "that old familiar pain", and the snow turning "into rain" suggests, there is unfinished business there.
For me, the symbolism of the snow turning into rain cannot be happy. For me, the singer is sad and clearly longing for his "old lover".

Why not just exchange numbers and talk on the phone if this wasn't more?As in the song, we ran out of things to say; and yet, still, I felt "that old familiar pain." I never did ask him why he left; and I realized it wasn't important to know. This beautifully sad story is one most everyone can relate to and find tucked away in the most protected part of our hearts.Will there ever be a love as strong or as ultimately painful as our "first love"?After about 30 years, I returned home and looked up the guy who broke my heart when I was 18 (and he was about 23). Yeah, kinda dumb -- but I had never forgotten the hurt. I went over to his place, to pick him up and go out for a drink, catch up on old times, and who knows, right? Here was a man who used to be athletic, handsome, on his game, smart and funny, with this honest-for-real twinkle in his eye, who was now somewhere lost in the midst of this old man I stood before.Being out was new to me, and it was obviously (from my now mature perspective) a very deep infatuation. It was the first time in my life I was actually stunned beyond words.It's sad to me that Dan and Jill weren't able to make that work. ” half joking, but likely half knowing we weren't going to make it.But, if they had managed to pull that off, then there would be no song to wring all those emotions from our hearts. To this day, 30 years later, I have a “Pavlovian” reaction to this song ,where the tears just automatically come whenever I hear it (which has made for some awkward moments in the company of others, having to excuse myself to the bathroom to deal with “something in my eye”). I do think some here may be over analyzing the lyrics a bit.Estimates are not comparable to other geographic levels due to methodology differences that may exist between different data sources.Some estimates presented here come from sample data, and thus have sampling errors that may render some apparent differences between geographies statistically indistinguishable.The first time was with my "first love" and there was a good deal of real pain involved with the breakup. But I did reach out decades later and, even though things didn't ultimately work out, the time we did manage to steal for ourselves and spend together was magical and remains among the happiest memories of my life. In the second, following a number of years apart, she reached out to me in a letter and we are still together, 13 happy years later. This song was released when I was in college, while I was in the throes of an intense romance.So I guess the point of this is that if there is unfinished business from earlier in your life, and if circumstances allow, I urge you to make the effort. Perhaps you too just might be able to "reach beyond the emptiness" and find some peace and happiness there. I remember saying to my lover at the time “do you think this will be us someday?
