The rain was falling
And I couldn't see the season changing
And the vibe slipping off it's axis
Our beautiful melody became wildly staccato

from Jill Scott (Ft. Yasiin Bey) – Love Rain (Remix) on Rap Genius

Meaning

She had fallen so in love that she didn’t notice how their relationship was falling apart, and their feelings and attitudes were matching up. they became distant and separate.

Staccato is the Italian word for “detached” It also is a form of musical articulation in which notes are disconnected.

The “beautiful melody” of a relationship that use to flow with ease, was now becoming difficult to try for, when it was going nowhere fast.
