Falling Rain

about

I wrote this song around 2010 at the sudden loss of a good friend and it was one of the three bonus tracks on Live at the Pump' released in 2012. I have remixed and remastered it and hope it honours my friends Ray, Martin and Louise.
As far as I can remember I have never or rarely played it live except at Martin's sendoff at the Eglise Anglicane in Dinard in 2013

lyrics

Falling Rain

Falling rain, falling leaves
Another ride around the sun
Falling rain and fading dreams
Mark the time since you were gone

I miss your friendship and company
And the bond I never thought would be broken
But most of all I miss the words

The words that will never again be spoken
The words that will never again be spoken
The words that will never again be spoken


I read the words you sent to me
Full of life and future plan
What should have been but cannot be
I'd change it all but no-one can

Last night I dreamed you were there with me
And your voice was in my mind when I'd woken
Just fading thoughts of all that's gone

And words that will never again be spoken
And words that will never again be spoken
And words that will never again be spoken


And so it goes life's dance
Guided by some power above
Or is it just a game of chance
Live in fear or live in love

We stand before the open door
Blind before the one that lies open
We close our eyes and we hear again

The words that will never again be spoken
The words that will never again be spoken
The words that will never again be spoken
