Rain or shine
Verse
We’ve struggled and we’ve risen.
We’ve run into dead ends.
We’ve started up all over
We’ve always been best friends.
Chorus
I love you, you love me,
Rain or shine, rain or shine.
I’ll be forever yours
You’ll be forever mine.
I love you, you love me,
Rain or shine, rain or shine.
Verse
We took our vows we promised
For better or for worse.
It’s not about selfishness.
We put each other first.
Chorus
I love you, you love me,
Rain or shine, rain or shine.
I’ll be forever yours
You’ll be forever mine.
I love you, you love me,
Rain or shine, rain or shine.
Bridge
You shelter me I comfort you
That’s what lover’s do.
This old life ain’t always easy
But one thing is true.
Tag
I love you, you love me
Rain or shine.

Hello Carroll,

I read this several times over the past few days, I like it, the idea behind it is really simple and easily relatable I’m really surprised no one else has commented on it one way or the other.  Do you have anyone else working on the music?  If not, I would like to give it a shot if that is ok with you.  Best wishes,

really like the guitar and tempo! Any way to make the solo stand out a bit? Do you think I need to write a bridge?

Hello Carroll,

Thanks for the comments on the guitar and tempo, of course the set up and rhyme of the verses and chorus in the lyric were the template for my tempo, so Thank You.  I will see what I can do about the solo.  No need to write a bridge, I used your existing bridge with changes to the last two lines:

Br.
You shelter me I comfort you,
that’s what lovers do.
Life ain’t always - easy,    (dropped “this old”)
but you got me and I got you.  (dropped “but one thing is true”)

I will do a little more work on the timing, I will probably contact you via email for some direction before recording another track.  Best wishes,

Speak soon,

Most of your lines here are telling this second person what she or he already knows

What is the point ???
