Scott Youngberg: Listen to the Music

Rain

(Scott Youngberg (featuring Steve Webb))
July, 2011
David Henry, Ned Henry

A song I love from the early 90's, written by My friends David and Ned Henry. (The Piedmont Cooks, Macon, GA)

Recorded with permission.

Night had fallen, we were fast asleep

Only to be wakened by a stampering sheet

Of rain falling down from a sky of honesty.

Window was open, nothing we could do

Water had blown all over our room

At first we didn't even know what we had on our hands.

 

My Love is the rain

 

Reality falls from a darkened sky

Soaks in the ground where I try to hide

Even in the highest places, my feet are touched with water.

And in the dry spells when the land is hot

It was then that I wish I hadn't forgot

The beauty of the soft showers laid about the land in the springtime.

 

My love is the rain

(Falling down on me)

 

When it hits me hard, hits me in the face

I live my life by the moment and trace

Back on all the little things that have brought me here

So save a place where I can see

The hard, fast showers of love's purity

And bring my peace, back to an open soul.

 

My love is the rain
