Description
Another track using a Sara Teasdale (1884-1933) poem. This is a slower tempo track with some rain sound effects for good measure! Lots of multitracking. I think the chorus' lyrics would work on the next Twilight film! :-)

Lyrics
If I could have your arms tonight-
But half the world and the broken sea
Lie between you and me.

The autumn rain reverberates in the courtyard,
Beating all night against the barren stone,
The sound of useless rain in the desolate courtyard
Makes me more alone.

If you were here, if you were only here-
My blood cries out to you all night in vain
As sleepless as the rain.

Thanks spruce
Your wish is my command! I just released a single (unrelated to my album concept) called "Sticky Note" that is a comedic look at my wife's obsession with sticky notes around the house!
