Last Dance in the Rain

Last Dance in the Rain

 

 

Keep me awake

Pray my soul the lord to take

I can almost feel the breeze

Blowing gently through the leaves

Those stubborn trees they never bend

The broken boughs they never mend

 

She don't remember any more

Just a part of growing old

Don't remember or recall

A saddened face did long since fall

 

Sometimes they come but she's not there

In merely playgrounds deep within a stare

Does she remember if we laughed or cried

I feel all that has left her mind

 

Maybe she's dancing in the rain

 

She don't remember any more

Just a part of growing old

Don't remember or recall

A saddened face did long since fall

 

Don't remember any more

Just a part of growing old

Don't remember or recall

A saddened face did long since fall

 

Send me to sleep

Pray my soul to keep

It never rains outside she said

Now she's 'neath the flowerbeds

Silently they close the door

 

Watch the rain come down

It pours

Lyrics and Music by Victoria Simmonds and Paddy O'Grady – Last dance in the rain - 2023

Don't miss a thing. Here you'll find all the latest reviews news and podcasts related to my new single "Last Dance in the Rain".

The Indie Pop single "Last Dance in the Rain" inspires thought provoking lyrics about dementia and alzheimer's and other memory affected illnesses, in a heartfelt manner, evoking intense emotions for people affected by the conditions as well as the friends and family around them, focusing on the change of personality due to the illnesses. The loss of the mind before the body and the hope that although they are not with us in mind the hope that they are happy, dancing in the rain. 

Her rich and powerful voice is amazingly diverse, expressing not only long and resonant notes but also exhibits the soft and tender undertones. You can sense the years of musical theatre experience from the controlled emotions in the storytelling.
