I wrote this song last night during a power cut
we've just had 3 days of no power (it's back on now) and last night another storm came thru the area.
Each line is a literal moment during the storm
somehow it made a song - the original recording (by me) is ghastly - I can't sing, haven't played the guitar in yonks and there's a space in the recording, cos I had to turn the page in my notebook.
I need to know if this is shit - as in the melody or the whole concept of the song. there are bits I love, but I need
1 take - Very bad singing - Very bad guitar playing - You are warned - Would love someone to put this to music
12 hrs later ......
I was very fortunate that @stevenwesleyguiles liked these lyrics enough to ask if he could put music to it.
Thank you so much Steven, I can't get over how fast you did this, as well as your amazing interpretation. You've lifted the song to another place and I'm in awe of your skill in doing so. 😀
No Words - Song 10 of 20

Right now it’s raining
Water’s running down the street
I got candles lit in every room
I’m wishing you were here with me
The air smells sweet and innocent
And our balcony is dark
I see red lights of cars reversing
Will you give me back my heart?
The rain keeps falling sideways
Just like all the dreams we had
I don’t know if trees are falling
I'm still waiting for you to come back
But the wind blows everything away
And the candles flicker and flow
I can’t see the houses down the lane
Cos I don't know where to go
I know lies have consequences
And forgiveness is too much
I deserve to sit in darkness
Cos I’m the one who fucked things up
And there are no words to undo this
No words to make things right
No words to stop this river
No words to help you stay tonight
