These fantastic lyrics were again provided by Deanna (dsweidel). Absolutely loved working with these. Thank you.

Lyrics: 

Your blue eyes so mesmerising
Keeping me wide awake
Listening to the rain
and tryin’
tryin to
control the ache

The conversation is dwindling
there's not much left to say
Listening to the rain
its tellin’
tellin' me
you’ll go away

CH
And now I’ll hate
hate the rain
It’s soothing sound
now remiss
It forever will remind me
Of the night
of our last kiss

My eyes blinded awash with tears
Keeping me wide awake
Listening to the rain
Reviewing
reviewing all
of our mistakes

Now The conversation’s over
There’s nothing else left to do
Listening to the rain
it's tellin’
tellin' me
I’m losing you

CH
And now I’ll hate
hate the rain
It’s soothing sound
now remiss
It forever will remind me
Of the night
of our last kiss

Our eyes lock once again
Our lips meet one last time
You walk out into the rain
With a heart forever mine

Tune is very radio-friendly.
Lyrics are solid-- as I've come to expect from Deanna.

Focussing on the demo-proper:
Great classic country sound here. BiaB is a really splendid tool!
Also, great vocal arrangement and performance.

Oh, wow. I liked the lyric when I first read it (and of course, loved a specific line) but this musical accompaniment has topped any expectations. I hadn't really thought of a traditional country feel, but it works beautifully and in hindsight is a natural fit. Definitely a good collab.

Nice! Love how you followed up with the conversation slowing down and ending, that is a nice visual. Love the classic country tune and the vocal is beautiful and emotional for telling this story. The ending is beautifully sad, what a great collab!
