tracks : Rain
The first song I made, improvising to some guitar tune a friend had recorded. I had never done this before and I just really wished to write a song.
I did not know where to start with the lyrics, until I stumbled over an old line of a poem, I wrote ages ago about the rainy reflexions on the pavement, so you can see the clouds beneath your feet...
So – rain just came naturally. And I decided, I did not want to stumble into the stereotypical depressive mood often brought about by it.
Walking on the clouds Reflected on the streets I’m listening to the sound Of my heart that lightly beats I look down to the ground And then dive up to the sky I never searched and always found Never asking me why What is the sound Of the rising sun The colours that rebound Of feelings that have gone What is the taste of green What is the smell of blue What lies beneath the things that I have seen What is wrong - what is true? Rain Comes and Clears my mind Washes all away Things to leave behind And then the Rain Comes and Floods my heart Empties all my thoughts Lifts my spirit up Stepping on the moon That is lying on the lane Indulging memories of all the pictures that remain Traces of this crazy afternoon My feet are on the ground But my head is in the sky No more doubts resound This feeling makes me high So high Rain Comes and Clears my mind Washes all away Things to leave behind And then the Rain Comes and Floods my heart Drowns my memories Clears my spirit up My mind is clear My sight is new The only thing I hear is the drops of falling morning dew
