Eric Harper’s song “Rain” from his CD “Eric Harper”

Continuing the interview with Eric Harper about his new CD “Eric Harper”:

Q. The CD is very personal — there is a song dedicated to your brother, another one dedicated to your wife, yet you also sing about a family with 6 billion members or so. Is this a reference to one human family?

A: 6 billion member reference in “Rain” does refer to humanity as a whole. Essentially, Rain is a song that’s for the downtrodden; it’s a solace for the one who’s having a bad day, week, month or even a hard life. My goal with Rain was to create a that feeling you get from a friend who simply listens to you when you need to vent or cry it all out. A sort of musical hug. đŸ™‚

Rain

There’s a growing storm around me
The howling of the wind screams in my ears
The flood of bitter reasons
Was not enough to bring back my family

And it all rains down on me
Like a million tears from the sea
I don’t know where I was on that day
‘Cause it was raining down on me

I see my own family
Six billion maybe more drowning in the sea
And all their dreams float past me
Like the words of love that all went unsaid

And it all rains down on me
As the ocean empties the sea
I don’t know where you were on that day
I just recall you told me one thing

You wanna cry
You wanna scream
Baby that’s alright with me

You wanna cry
You wanna scream
Baby that’s alright with me

Baby that’s alright with me
Baby that’s alright with me

And it all rains down on me
As the ocean empties the sea
I don’t know where you were on that day
I just recall you told me one thing

(Chorus)

‘Cause you are the hope
That’s raining on me
And baby that’s alright by me

Yes, you are the hope
That’s raining on me
And baby that’s alright by me
