Summer Rain

So much love my heart contains,
Baby, you're as beautiful as the summer rain.

It's been so long since we spoke last,
It's ended before it's begun, it's already past.

Though you were never mine, you cause me so much pain,
I cry alone in the summer rain.

I ask myself, "what in the world did I do,
And what can I do to be enough for you?"

What I feel in my heart is hard to explain,
It's like dancing in the summer rain.

The pain bruises and pierces, I cannot fight,
The way I feel when you're in my sight.

You don't love me, it's plain,
But still, I wait for you in the summer rain.

Inspired by: Belinda Carlisle, Summer Rain
