Summer Breeze (The Love I Never Had)

by Daniel Eischeid



Written for the FaceBook songwriting game, under the prompt "Characters." Written June 16th, 2016.


As I lay in your arms every night
Wide awake till the warm morning light
I can tell by the smile on your face
That you're dreaming of warm summer days

When we would ride our bikes and play
Until the sun went down and our moms call our names

Sometimes when I feel the breeze
As I stand outside beneath the trees
I look up, enchanted by the leaves as they blow
And some nights when I feel the need
I'll go stand outside beneath the trees
And I'll watch the lightning bugs all eve as they glow

As we walk through the warm summer rain
Not a reason at all to complain
I believe that we're happier now
Than the gods, and that fate should allow

And it just gets better from here
We just hold hands and all our problems disappear

And when the stars shine down on me, and illuminate your face
I remember when we would sneak, out to look at the Milky Way
And we would formulate our dreams, nothing could stand in our way
And our problems seemed so small, as they'd all melt away

Nirvana, Weezer, Ozma influenced, melodic, power pop-rock music. Strong melodies, hooks, and good harmony-driven rock. My personal acoustic demos I record on the spot, to give to my band (Starry Skies) to work up drum and bass and guitar tracks for. Some make it to our band's lineup, some don't. They sound very different when finished. Now, full band (solo) demos as well! Please enjoy. ... more
