about

I just posted a more recent Songwriter Work Tape of this song today..lyrically more complete.. neither one were ever meant for public consumption, and I include Tom's amazing inspirations as a point of evolutionary reference, and as an important exclamation point of the beauty of the creative process... Tom & I were enthusiastically involved in a "Steam of Consciousness"collaboration...Very early Songwriter Work Tape I sent to Tom Keeley, guitarist extraordinaire, member of THURSDAY, on tour this past year as one of the main acts of RIOT FEST. I posted an early, very bare, sparse SWT of this tune on FaceBook, and for whatever reason, it touched Tom. I was working in Garageband at the time, sent him an MP3, he added some very, very loose drums, but then, this very powerful guitar part....This is what collaboration is all about...TRANSCENDENCE!!! I would've NEVER heard the parts he played...and I'm SO thankful. Tom WILL definitely be part of my 2017 Album Project! note: no bass track whatsoever

lyrics

Let it rain

Words I can’t get over…trapped inside my brain…
I drink just to get sober…I scream just to get sane…
Darkness falls around me…dresses me in black…
Thinking of what could have been…am I ever coming back….
Oh, oh…
Let it rain…and wash me clean again…
Let it rain…and set me free….
Let it rain…and wash away my sins…
Let it rain…rain down on me….

Anguished are these words I write…they hide under my skin…
Languished is the will to fight…where do I begin…
Can you smell it in the air tonight…storm clouds ripe with tears..
Each and every lightning strike…illuminates my fears….

Let it rain…and wash me clean again…
Let it rain…and set me free…
Let it rain…and let me dream again…
Let it rain…rain down on me..

Let it rain…and wash me clean again…
Let it rain…and set me free…
Let it rain…and let me dream again…
Let it rain…rain down on me….

about

Charles "Chaz" Laughon aka Chaze Lounge Wilmington

I've posted some barely adequate recordings here, many bad writer's renditions, of a few songs I've written in my life. Most of my songs never recorded, likely never will be. No matter, just mutterings to myself. I'm a lyricist who believes that language is a dog chasing it's tail. Didn't immerse into human life as I probably should've, or perhaps I immersed too much. The dark births the light. ... more
