Somewhere on the shores of failed dreams there is a cry for help. The cry comes from the deepest part of the soul that says, "Stop the maddness!" Love, rain down on me and deliver me from this mess...

Story behind the song
Written after a bad day at work. Listen to the deep sigh of the guitar in the second verse. Adam played so very tasty here! This song is about not succeding and being ready to chuck it all. It kind of has an early "Sade" feel.
Lyrics
Over the Sea of Love, on the shores of Failed Dreams, in the midnight of my life (or so it seams); seeking a dawning (the other side of night), a quest for peace, the need for something right. It seems the harder I fight the harder I fall (is it failure to learn some lesson, somehow?). I'm trying to love the world, but it doesn't seem to want to love me back. My soul cannot sustain another attack. (Chorus) Love, rain down on me. Love, rain down on me. I'm just a man. Confusion meets my plans. I need a stronger voice to clarify the choice. Love rain down on me. Parables of principles pondered in time. Everyone's got a "perfect answer," none of them are mine. Re-teaching me lessons I've already learned, taking advice from the unadvisable just gets you burned. (Chorus) Love, rain down on me. Love, rain down on me. I'm just a man. Confusion meets my plans. I need a higher voice to clarify the choice. Love rain down on me. 1997 excalibur arts, theater & music enterprises
