I seen a rainbow yesterday,
Using a storm as a metaphor for life, she’s saying that she is seeing relief from the chaos of life, it’s getting better.
When Left Eye went to rehab for burning her boyfriend’s house the people at the rehab center let her leave the facilities and work on the CrazySexyCool album. When she was leaving the rehab she saw a rainbow and it inspired this verse.
