    The Raven Stole The Moon

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Raven, May 27, 2008.

    Recently I have been recording an Album. This is a One album deal and a one off.
    A few of us have gotten together to form a band called Symphony. Mostly the music is acoustic but some of the tracks have been electric. Originally there was four of us but in the end its turn out that there will be five of us.

    Anyhow a local company promotes local bands Eyes Wide Shut Recordings and we have decided to be one of those bands. There won’t be much profit in it for us and our main performance was Battle Of The Bands at Floral Hall. We played against 11 other bands and came third. Though we only received third place because of my Song She Love’s The Rain. A song which I am now really proud of.

    The place was packed and we had a tough contest because everyone who entered was great. And we also found out that night that I cannot sing fast paced songs. LOL

    So with that The Album will be finished and fully recorded and put to disc by the start of July.

    Here’s the Cover design we would like it to look like.

    One of my faveourite tracks on the album is The Raven And The Wolf.

    AnyHow
    Here's She Love's The Rain

    [A Piano plays solo for 30 seconds]

    She Loves The Rain


    The grey skies above
    Are tears from the angels
    She loved the rain
    In many ways
    Always hiding the tears
    She loved the rain

    The stars above us
    Will shine all that brighter
    For her smile will find birds singing in spring
    One kiss from her still red lips
    Is a Kiss from an Angel
    Autumn leaves will fall as she glows

    One touch is like the joy
    Of belonging into heaven
    Her heart was like the beat of a deer
    Fleeing the hunter through the woods
    And yet she managed to find a smile

    She loved the rain
    In a beautiful dawn
    Like a falling star from the heavens above
    She would grace a smile
    And tell me
    She loves the rain.

    Oooh it’s just an endless night
    Falling water is rain
    From above she would smile
    Send me a kiss and grace her love through
    Her beating heart
    Beautiful to the touch

    Running wild in fields painted gold
    Its not hard to believe
    That’s she had a beauty
    To equal the gods above
    Running wild while the rain would fall
    Across her skin with a passion from the heart

    She loved the rain
    In a beautiful dawn
    Like a falling star from the heavens above
    She would grace a smile
    And tell me
    She loves the rain.

    I only wish I could have surrendered my soul
    For the darkness was cold
    She could find comfort in her pain
    Waiting for another storm
    So she could shed her tears
    Through the rain hiding her pain

    She would live and she would laugh
    She had eternity
    And she chose to love
    And let the daemons take their claim
    Finding some comfort with her pain
    Would be to look at the rain gracing a smile

    She loved the rain
    In a beautiful dawn
    Like a falling star from the heavens above
    She would grace a smile
    And tell me
    She loves the rain.

    Tears in rain
    Just tears falling
    Falling hiding within this rain
    Tears come crushing through grey skies
    For she would wake smile and laugh
    Laugh all the while she felt the pain

    Once she dreamed of paradise
    Spent a day planning her time there
    Choosing to live her life
    And steer her way through the rain
    All the while Darkness was waiting
    Waiting for her

    She loved the rain
    In a beautiful dawn
    Like a falling star from the heavens above
    She would grace a smile
    And tell me
    She loves the rain.

    She became tired
    Dreamed no more
    So far way she fell left the rain to fall
    Yet with a smile she understood
    She would not walk alone
    Tired she’d speak of angels by her side

    She loved the rain
    In a beautiful dawn
    Like a falling star from the heavens above
    She would grace a smile
    And tell me
    She loves the rain.


    I'll post a few more in the lyrical section of the forum.

    When We began to play She Loves The Rain it was simply amazing because everyone went quiet and the atmosphere was really well worth it. I have to admit though I am the one saying it. I think as a band we couldn't have done that song better. But that said we really rehearsed that song more so than the others. Because of our third place status we've decided that that's the song we want to release as a single.

    Well Raven, I will just say I am ever so proud! Congratulations my friend.

    It is most wonderful news and the covers look fabulous. I really am extremely excited for you and glad that song went so beautifully for you. It truly is one of the bet pieces you have ever written.

    BTW, am I going to be able to get a copy? You know I would love to buy one Raven!

    That's really cool. Do you guys perhaps have a myspace so I could give your songs a listen?
