'Summer Rain' is a nostalgic track evoking memories of scorching hot summer days with thunderstorms on the horizon. It has a lot of light and shade and loads of harmonies. A good one for radio.


Summer Rain

Words © Tim Hudspith, December 2000

Even bitumen melts
In a heat wave
And you get no relief
Even in the shade

You drive down to the coast
To the cool sea spray
But you get so burnt
Your skin peels away

The sun beats down
The electricity fails
You can’t get to sleep
So your temper frays

Then the clouds build up
And turn black and grey
And from the sky comes falling
Summer rain

Summer rain
Summer rain
Summer rain

You can smell the earth
Come alive again
You let it soak your skin
And run down your face

It clears the air
And cleans the dust away
Nothing feels as good as
Summer rain

Summer rain
Summer rain
Summer rain
