We had hoped for some form of Valentine's Day challenge. So when we heard that our challenge was to write a song about rain, we decided to make it a romantic encounter... two lovers meet for the first time as they take shelter from a storm at the beach.

Summer Rain
william hoover & dave leigh - 02 Feb 2010


Walking by the ocean
There upon the Strand
I heard the pitter patter
Of raindrops on the sand

I ran to find some shelter
'Neath the safety of a pier
And as the storm subsided
I turned to find you here.

Suddenly came that Summer Rain
To melt my heart away
Now the ribbons in your hair
Will tie the knot this coming May

You curtsy, then I follow
As we lay down by the sea
The ocean gulls are all a-chatter
Trying to sing us both to sleep

Your eyes were on the ocean
But you soon made eyes at me
The smile that promised your devotion
Made a captive heart of me

Suddenly came that Summer Rain
To melt my heart away
Now the ribbons in your hair
Will tie the knot this coming May

Perhaps a bit of kismet
Blessed are the powers that be
In that ever magic moment
That captured you and me
And when the rain comes down
The roses start to bloom
Walking on and skipping stones
While the clouds bid us adieu

Oh, I love that Summer Rain
That brought my heart to you
There is no shooting star
That ever fell so far
The way that I just fell for you
Yes, I love that Summer Rain
That brought my heart to you
There is no shooting star
That ever fell so far
The way that I just fell for you
(fade out)

Love it. Great Lyrics., Quite sentimental and yet Deep. Wearing your heart on your sleeve. Now I have to find it so I can hear it. CMFGB

Found it. Yeah, has potential. Keep up the good work. As you know music is only mathmatics and once you get the formula... well... you're there. Gotta look into this Song Fu site. Sounds interesting. CMFGB
