taking the last train homeby coloradoweeks on Apr 27, 2023
so i guess
the rest is over now, then
another era come and gone
should've seen this coming sooner, i guess
it's time for us to move along
another city block to ponder this mess
another traffic light to mope
another downpour to disguise my distress
but i'll try my best to cope
look at the whole city moving on
seems like everybody has a place to run to
look at the whole city moving on
still i can't find a way to be without you
i'm taking the last train home
alone this time,
and it's like i lost a limb
to lose my dearest friend
tell me when this hurt will ever end

you never let me speak for myself
ask a question that I dont expect to know
when did you decide what's best for me?
I know you keep me safe
but did i ask you to
to shield me from the storm
ran out of time to do a chorus!! yay compo time
Fear of a Future Washed Awayby Treyt on Apr 27, 2023
I CAN"T SEE
WHAT'S RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME
IS THIS RAIN
OR IS IT TEARS I HAVE
FEAR OF A FUTURE WASHED AWAY
WALLS FALL LIKE RAIN
REVEALING EVERYTHING INSIDE OF ME
I FEEL THE PAIN
AS EVERYTHING STRUGGLES TO BREAK FREE
Forecast: Wetby Misael.K on Apr 27, 2023
It's gonna be rainy and windy. You'll carry an umbrella, even though you're not sure if it's gonna be overwhelming for the poor waterproof plastic hanging over your head. Still, it has been a while since it last rained, and it was missed.
Nature's Kissby Meistr on Apr 27, 2023
Original song and lyrics made in one hour.
Falling from the sky, a liquid lullaby,
A symphony of droplets, in harmony, they fly.
A soothing gentle whisper, nature's sweet embrace,
Washing all our worries, as raindrops kiss our face.
Rain, rain, come and dance with me,
In the storm of life, we find tranquility!
Rain, rain, come and dance with me.
Seeking Petrichorby Souperion on Apr 27, 2023
Just some new-age style pipes, strings, and whistles. Mimicking the cadence of rain with percussion is not as easy as I hoped.
Umbrellas don't protect you from Thunderby Wassup Thunder on Apr 27, 2023
Decided to try something atypical, started plinking on a heavily distorted key synth and ended up with something more moody and atmospheric than my usual work. Course that couldn't spare us from more eurobrass synths sneaking in...

Rainy Ambleby handknit on Apr 27, 2023
Definitely feels like there's something here. I was just getting into the groove when 60 minutes rolled around.

In Purple Neon Lightby Arcana on Apr 27, 2023
Call me here
In the greyest night
Your smell of cheap booze hits my mind
Telling me this news
in purple neon light
Was what I doing for you all a lie
- Hear the rain pitter patter on the glass
Slip that word that I thought was in the past
Why didn’t you open up before
I would - have - fixed it for you
Too much has gone by
Though the cold rain falls
The umbrella blocks our sky

I had a whole sorta concept for more songy stuff but I got lost in sound design. Alas!
Beat Tape For When You Are Walking In The Rainby TheVideoGamer on Apr 27, 2023
4 Beats, 2 Images, 1 scenario involving rain.
I thought a beat-tape in a lo-fi style would be absolutely perfect, so i went in that direction. The beats are mostly hip-hop with a mix of own melodies and sampled guitars. Each beat is around a minute, totalling 5 minutes of music.
The beats themselves vary with one being bright and cheerful, one being melancholic, one being calming and slightly optimistic and the last being more serious, and perhaps a little dark. Oh well i had a lot of fun on this, hope you do too!
