The Rain in Spain

I’ve had a few new songs that I’ve been wanting to record for a while now, but being here in Spain I currently have no access to any equipment. And it’s rather frustrating, as I like to get songs down soon after writing them, so that I can learn from them and move onto the next project.

However, I recently managed to get my hands on a cheap camera, so have decided to make some videos of the songs instead. (Please excuse the poor quality!)

The Rain in Spain

This song is about weariness upon the road of life. No matter what journey you’re on, at certain intervals you’ll encounter reflections which can sometimes be detrimental to your morale. It’s often hard to see past it all without acknowledging the hardships…

Lyrics:

When the walk has been far;
Stumbling past everything you are.
You know the oceans run deep.
Deep beneath the fortune’s at your feet.

Whenever you’re bleeding just say that it’s art.
The ocean’s recede, the seas never part.
Just why is there meaning in feeling alarmed,
As though you’ve carved out your heart?

It seems the wounds never heal;
Picking at the scabs and scars you peel.
You know the moment will pass
Fast beyond the wisdom which will last.

Whenever you’re ripped up it’ll tear you apart;
Split down the seams, though tied to the part.
Just why is there meaning in feeling alarmed,
As though you’ve carved out your heart?
