Song Lyrics for Summer Rain by Belinda Carlisle

Whispering our goodbyes
Waiting for a train
I was dancing with my baby
In the summer rain
I can hear him saying
Nothing will change
Come dancing with me baby
In the summer rain

I remember the rain on our skin
And his kisses hotter than the
Santa Ana winds
Whispering our goodbyes
Waiting for a train
I was dancing with my baby
In the summer rain

I remember laughing til we almost cried
(There at station that night)
I remember looking in his eyes

Oh my love, it’s you and that I dream of
Oh my love, since that day
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

Doesn’t matter what I do now
Doesn’t matter what I say
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

I can hear the whistle
Military train
I was dancing with my baby
In the summer rain
I can here him singing
Ooh “Love Is Strange”
Come dance with me baby
In the summer rain

I remember the rain pouring down
And we poured our hearts out
As the train pulled out
I can see my baby
Waving from the train
It was last time that I saw him
In the summer rain

Oh my love, it’s you and that I dream of
Oh my love, since that day
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

Doesn’t matter what I do now
Doesn’t matter what I say
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

Every time I see the lightening
Every time I hear the thunder
Every time I close the window
When this happens in the summer
Oh the night is so inviting
I can feel that you are so close
I can feel you when the wind blows
Blows right through my heart

Oh my love, it’s you and that I dream of
Oh my love, since that day
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

Every night and every day now
Though I know you’ve gone away
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain

FACTS ABOUT “SUMMER RAIN”

“Summer Rain” is a song written by Robbie Seidman and Maria Vidal, produced by Rick Nowels for Belinda Carlisle’s third album, Runaway Horses (1989). The song is about a man who goes away to war and leaves his wife, saying that nothing will change – they will be together forever and always. The song is set in the present as his widow sings it, remembering the last time she saw him. It was released around the world in 1990 and was issued as a CD single, 7″ single and a 12″ single.

Carlisle’s version had minor success on the charts reaching the top thirty in the United States and the UK, but was a bigger hit in Australia, where it reached the Top Ten. It was later covered by artists including Slinkee Minx, whose cover version of the song also reached the top ten in Australia.

“Summer Rain” achieved moderate commercial success in North America, where it was released as the second single from Runaway Horses (1989). In January 1990, the song entered the Billboard Hot 100, the main US chart, at number 86. Within seven weeks of its release it peaked at number 30 and stayed at that position for two weeks. The single spent 13 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, six of which were in the top 50. The single was Carlisle’s second to last song to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. It also peaked at number 29 on the US Billboard Adult Contemporary, where it spent eight weeks on the chart.
