I guess we may have to think about how this will work in the absence of music (though a singing chat room has all kinds of comic possibilities - especially with my voice). If anyone has any ideas about basic song structure I guess we could try to produce something to that. Not sure of copyright issues but I did partly re-write an existing song lyric to make it more topical. Need advice on that - if ok it wouldbe another possible 'exercise' designed to write within a generic 'shape'. In the absence of all those skills: this was an early effort.

[bold] Lady In The Rain

I was out walkin' in the rain
Heart full of trouble and doubt
Met a lady in my mind
Talked till the night ran out

Lady in the rain
Lady of the song
Her melody lingers a long time after
Her smiling laughter
And the rain and the pain have gone

We talk of loves we've each once known
And share the sorrows our lives have grown
Her laugh runs like water in the sun
But slow and deep when the memories come

Lady in the rain…….

Quiet now, the end of a troubled night
Sun's comin' up to bring the light
But I miss my lady in the rain
Companion of the night

Lady in the rain……..

Still go out walkin' in the rain
Searchin' the rain soaked streets for sun
Her soft song echoes on and on
Till in my mind the hurt is done.

Lady in the rain……..
