Description
Ok here’s a live acoustic (guitar/mandola) version of Ahead of the Rain. This was us having a first bash at it and as the recorder was running I thought I’d leave the chat at the beginning on the recording. Our jamming sessions are never dull and always fun despite the arguments!! Cheers Mark

Lyrics
Ahead of the Rain

Woman with a pinched and scornful mouth
Do your features become your personality?

Sitting so still
Stone, stone cold
God never let me get that old

The mist hangs heavy on the hedgerows
Your breath hangs heavy on the air

Robins in cage
Heavens in a rage
But we’re not like you
We can make it through
We’re keeping just ahead of the rain
We’ve done just enough
To numb all the pain

She drifts back to places
Where it all began
To the woods and fields
Where she knows the land

She really can’t believe
That it’s come to this
Her heart beats faster
And her hand makes a fist

Robins in cage
Heavens in a rage
But we’re not like you
We can make it through
We’re keeping just ahead of the rain
We’ve done just enough
To numb all the pain

For a live recording this sounds very good. Nice clear sound. The guitar sound is particularly rich. Nice song. I really like the chorus.

"You'll get your own song right one day" LOL.
I like the song, nice change from verse to chorus. Picked riffs ornament the song well.

Sounds like you're having a lot of fun here. From experience I know that "getting your own song right one day" is not always the case, but a nice positive outlook nevertheless :)
Nice to hear a jamming session from Nottingham.
Cheers from Oz,
