Summer Rain by Belinda Carlisle

What do you think?

This emotional song tells the story of a young lady that said goodbye to her love at the train station as he went off to serve military duty but never returned. She describes the magical moments they spent together dancing in the rain, and how every time it rains and the wind blows she is reminded of him.

Lyrics

Whispering our goodbyes, waiting for a train
I was dancing with my baby in the summer rain
I can hear him saying “nothing will change”
Come dance with me baby, in the summer rain
I remember the rain on our skin
And his kisses hotter than the Santa Ana winds
Whispering our goodbyes, waiting for a train
I was dancing with my baby in the summer rain
I remember laughing ’till we almost cried
There at station that night
I remember looking in his eyes
Oh my love, it’s you and that I dream of
Oh my love, since that day
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain
Doesn’t matter what I do now
Doesn’t matter what I say
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain
I can hear the whistle military train
I was dancing with my baby, in the summer rain
I can here him singing “Ooh “Love Is Strange”
Come dance with me baby, in the summer rain
I remember the rain pouring down
And we poured our hearts out as the train pulled out
I can see my baby waving from the train
It was last time that I saw him in the summer rain
 
 
Oh my love, it’s you and that I dream of
Oh my love, since that day
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain
Doesn’t matter what I do now
Doesn’t matter what I say
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain
Every time I see the lightning
Every time I hear the thunder
Every time I close the window
When this happens in the summer
Oh, the night is so inviting
I can feel that you are so close
I can feel you when the wind blows
Blows right through my heart
Oh my love, it’s you and that I dream of
Oh my love, since that day
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain
Every night and every day now 
Though I know you’ve gone away 
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain
Doesn’t matter what I do now
Doesn’t matter what I say
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain
