"It's In The Rain" by Enya

Every time
The rain comes down,
Close my eyes and listen.
I can hear the lonesome sound
Of the sky as it cries.

Listen to the rain
Here it comes again
Hear it in the rain

Feel the touch
Of tears that fall
...They won't fall forever
In the way the day will flow
All things come,
All things go.

Listen to the rain
...The rain...
Here it comes again...
Hear it in the rain
...The rain...

Late at night
I drift away -
I can hear you calling,
And my name
Is in the rain,
Leaves on trees whispering,
Deep blue sea's mysteries.

Even when
This moment ends,
Can't let go this feeling.
Will come again
In the sound,
Falling down,
Of the sky as it cries.
Hear my name in the rain.



  1. love listening to the rain... music for the soul.
    love your collaged piece too, its beautiful.

  2. love how you have captured the rhythm

  3. we are expecting our first rain...I love the sound of rain falling.
    I like this new piece...a slight change in direction.

    1. We are still waiting for rain - we need it! This is a bit different for me; I decided to keep it abstract, and I'm finding I like it.
