    ACOUSTIC RAIN
    “Some say love was never meant for dreamers…”
    .
    THEY'RE BACK AT IT AGAIN. This time with a difference. By now, it’s no secret that The Front Porch Country Band is known around the world for its “Original American Country” – which has expanded the boundaries of what many define as country music.
    .
    Since spontaneously forming in the aftermath of the 30-ton meteor-strike which landed within ear-shot of their remote Pennsylvania recording studios in 2001, this band has traveled the globe as headliners – performing on the world’s greatest stages and dazzling audiences with their incomparable song-styling, soaring 6-part vocal harmonies, and blazing electric guitars.
    .
    This 12-song album represents something of a departure for the band. For this project, the group’s lead guitarists, Rick & Richard, have chosen to lay aside their “blazing electrics” to pick up their acoustic Martins & Taylors in collaboration with the celebrated vocal and instrumental talents of their fellow founding band-mates. Yes, they’ve covered some of this territory before. Indeed, as early as their first album, “Somebody Tonight,” the band broke fresh ground with two all-acoustic “Bonus Tracks.” Both acoustic songs from that album – “Solomon Wind” (#1 Folk Song in the world for 42 weeks) and “Christmas Once Upon A Time” (#1 Christmas Song in the world for 44 weeks) – topped their respective worldwide charts of then-online-giant mp3.com.
    .
    Now with “Acoustic Rain,” comes the release of their first all-acoustic full album of twelve original new songs, each recorded behind the inspired acoustic guitar master of founding band member, Rick Buck. “This was an unusual and unique recording approach for this band,” admits William John Christian, the band’s producer. “These are twelve highly sensitive songs which we felt would best be presented behind Rick’s guitar. We began by recording Rick’s Martin guitar performances first – and then surrounding those guitar parts with the rest of the band’s instrumental and vocal performances. I think we pulled it off, and we’ll let our fans around the world decide.”

    “Of loves & lovers…lost and found. A musical memoir.”

Track Name: Rain Dance
Rain dancin’ down my window pane and
I laugh to think about you now and then oh
I just don’t know you I don’t know who I see
When I see you starin’ back at me

Rain runnin’ down my window pane and
I cry to think about what might have been
You just don’t know me you don’t know who
You’d find if you’d just search inside my mind

But we can’t return to places
That we’ve never seen before
No more turnin’ back those pages – anymore

Time you’re runnin ‘round inside my mind
Now I find we’re turnin’ back the hands of time
You just don’t know me you don’t know how
I feel if you could end our love once so real

But we can’t return to places
That we’ve never been before
No more turnin’ back those pages – anymore

Rain still runnin’ down my window pane
But you’re gone you’re never comin’ back again
Guess I never told you I just never found the words to say
I still dream you’ll come back some day
Track Name: Used To Be
Used to be I could hold you near me
Used to be you were mine alone
Used to be arm-in-arm we’d dance in the moonlight –
If only I could hold you now would you come back home

Used to be northern lights were shinin’
Late at night your smile could chase the clouds away
Used to be the stars would dance across the heavens
All summer long – before you were gone away

Used to be love could live forever
Used to be we’d share our dreams ‘neath a midnight sky
Until the day the angel came down from heaven just to steal you
And leave me all alone here – wonderin’ why

Used to be we believed in always
Used to be true love never died helplessly
I held you close one night but lost you
Now since you’ve gone – I wonder
Where does true love hide

Used to be crystal nights could call us
Late at night the skies would sing their songs of love
And now every night the stars shine bright with wonder
And now every night the stars shine bright with wonder
And I wonder – is it really you there shinin’ up above

And now every night the stars shine bright with wonder
And I wonder – is it really you there shinin’ up above
Track Name: Love Rises With The Dawn
Some say love was never meant for dreamers
From everything I’ve seen you’re gettin’ set to go
Well that’s all right I feel your pain and sorrow
About this time tomorrow we’ll both be on our own

Still lookin’ back I never dreamed you’d leave
I guess I just believed that love would see us through
From now on I’m livin’ for tomorrow ‘cause someday baby somehow
I’ll be back with you

Some say love was only meant for losin’
But when it comes to choosin’ you’re everything to me
They say love can fail in desperate hours
The fault they say is ours and yet – I still believe

Comes a time broken hearts remember the darkness of December Brings promise of the sun and I know snow gives way to Springtime
So with the hope of spring I’m holdin’ on to you

Yes I know the season’s ever changin’
And lovers can’t be blamin’ our love of flyin’ free
For I know Spring returns anew and so I’m tellin’ you
You meant everything to me

I say love was only meant for dreamers
How else can true believers find strength to carry on
I know they say the heart’s a lonely hunter
But one way or another – true love is never gone

Yes I believe love’s just a dyin’ ember
Until two hearts remember the promise of the sun
Someday you’ll know though winter winds blow cold
Our love cannot grow old – love rises with the dawn

One day you’ll know though winter winds blow cold
Love never can grow old – love rises with the dawn
Track Name: You Laugh And I Cry
You belong to me but somehow we don’t know each other
There behind blue eyes the hurt you’ve tried to hide still shows

But you laugh and I cry oh and somethin’ dies inside you
Somewhere deep within our love begins
To fade away

Now you’re standin’ there laughin’ in the soft September rain
Love may come again we just don’t know when
Love can ever, ever seem the same

Girl you set me free you helped me see my life keeps changin’
And love keeps re-arrangin’ all our dreams keep driftin’ on

So you laugh and I cry oh and something dies inside us
Somehow in the end we part as friends
And then you’re gone

Now you’re standin’ there laughin’ in the cool November rain
Love may come again we just don’t know when
Love will ever ever be the same

So you laugh and I cry oh and something dies inside me
But somehow in the end we part as friends
And then you’re gone

Now I’m standin’ here cryin’ in the cold December rain
Love may come again I just don’t know when
I’ll never ever be the same
Track Name: Desperate People
Came a young boy laughin’
Skippin’ stones and ice cream cones
I thought I caught him tappin’ upon my door but then no more
He’s gone I’ve seen that boy before

Came a young man lyin’
Out in the rain in all his pain
I thought I caught him cryin’ so lost and poor but then no more
He’s gone I’ve seen that boy before

All the desperate people livin’ in a heartless world
They come and go and you never know
it could be they’re just like me – yeah
They’re just like you and me

Came an old man dyin’
Through the years through all his tears
I thought I caught him cryin’ along the shore but then no more
He’s gone I’ve seen that face before

All the desperate people livin’ in a heartless world
They come and go and you never know
It could be they’re just like me – yeah
They’re just like you and me

Are we the heartless people
Livin’ in a desperate world
We come and go and you never know
Can you see you’re just like me – yeah
They’re all like you and me

Came a young boy laughin’
skippin’ stones and ice cream cones
I thought I caught him tappin’ upon my door but then no more
He’s gone I’ve seen that boy before
He won’t be back no more
Track Name: Can't Stop Us Now
Can’t stop us now – can’t stop
The sun from shinin’ it don’t matter anyhow
Birds sing out loud come feel the earth is smilin’
A new day is dawnin’ now

Can’t turn back now – can’t keep
The moon from risin’ it don’t matter anyhow
Stars sing out loud come feel our cares are fadin’
A new day is startin’ now

Can’t stop us now – sing
Sing out loud come hear the bells are ringin’
A new day is callin’ now
Track Name: Quiet Sunset
Oh, as the sun was setting
My love and I were standing
And gazing off into the sky – aahhh
A girl so cute I thought I’d die
She looked at me and gave a sigh

And in the stillness of a sunset
And at the close of one more day
We like to sit down and forget
And kind of love our cares away

She smiled and said she loved me
Was mine and always would be
At least until the end of time – aahhh
A love so true it never ends
Now all my love to her I send

And in the stillness of a sunset
And at the close of one more day
We like to sit down and forget
And kind of love our cares away

Now as the days were passing
And people ‘round us chasing
And we were caught up in the rush – aahhh
This madness never was for us
I held her close and felt her touch

And in the stillness of a sunset
And at the close of one more day
We like to sit down and forget
And kind of love our cares away
Track Name: And The Skies Cleared
And the skies cleared the stars appeared
For the first time in our lives – we lingered there
To touch the sweet surprise

Look around us love surrounds us
Hold me close and never let me go
Look around you love surrounds you
Take my hand and feel the fire’s glow

Now the clouds cleared as dawn appeared
For the first time in our lives – we lingered there
With stardust in our eyes

Take my heart and feel our fires grow
Look around you now I’ve found you
Here’s my heart we’ll share the fire’s glow

And the skies cleared as stars appeared
For the first time – hold me close
And never let me go
Track Name: Can't Get You Off My Mind
The sun is risin’ there’s a new day dawnin’
The earth is smilin’ the world is callin’ while
I sit here misty-eyed ‘neath a cloud of rain
‘Cause the one I loved the one who loved me
Is far away – you’ve gone and left me
Another love can never seem the same

When you went away I thought I’d die
tell me don’t you think that’s unkind
Since you’ve gone away I’ve lost all track of time
Yeah you’ve been gone so long
I just can’t get you off my mind

I loved you I told you so
And you loved me said you’d never go
Then you left me guess you found somebody new
Now all the years have gone since I saw you last
But memories just don’t fade that fast
And the love we shared is
The life I’m clingin’ to

Oh you went away I thought I’d die
tell me don’t you think that’s unkind
Since you’ve gone away I’ve lost all track of time
Yeah you’ve been gone so long
I just can’t get you off my mind

Oh you went away I thought I’d die
tell me don’t you think that’s unkind
Since you’ve gone away I’ve lost all track of time
Yeah you’ve been gone so long
I just can’t get you off my mind

No, no no – no, no, no
I just can’t get you off my mind
I just can’t get you off my mind
Track Name: I Remember Sunshine
I remember sunshine yes’n I remember rain
But thinkin’ on back to places I been to they don’t seem the same
But I remember you girl sayin’ you’re stayin’ right down the line
And you’ve been waitin’ there
Such a long long time

And I remember Tuesdays and I remember you
Standin’ outside past quarter to midnight and all the things we’d do
And I remember runnin’ away from you and everyone we knew
Such a long long time ago I’m headed back to you
And you’re still waitin’ there
I’m runnin’ home to you

I remember sunshine yes’n I remember rain
But thinkin’ on back to places I been to they don’t seem the same
But I remember you girl sayin’ you’re stayin’ right down the line
And you’re still waitin’ there been a long long time
Headin’ home to hold you now
Such a long long time
Track Name: Acoustic Rain
when will I see you again
such a long road don’t know where it ends
nothin’ remains quite the same
acoustic rain

storm clouds are driftin’ away
rainbows returnin’ sun’s on its way
nothin’ remains quite the same
acoustic rain

thinkin’ of home
wonderin’ how this old journey ends
still on my own headin’ on back
just don’t know when

still walkin’ this lonely ol’ road
where life is leadin’ nobody knows
but nothin’ remains quite the same
acoustic rain

dreamin’ of home
guess somehow I just lost my way
still on my own headin’ on back
I’ll make it someday

so when will I see you again
time’s driftin’ on when will it end
nothin’ remains quite the same
acoustic rain
