"Reaching" as written by Alexander Francis Barry and Jason Bradford Reeves....
Girl you are like summer rain
Soft and warm
And delicate
And I am a foolish boy
Trying to catch every drop
Of you on my tongue
But there's just too many
And I can't get enough

You're inches from my fingertips
I've come as close as I can get
I'm reaching but the rest is up to you
'Cause I don't ever wanna miss
Being here with you like this
I'm trying but it's all that I can do
I'm reaching but the rest is up to you

Girl you are the morning sky
Glowing calm with burning light
And as I am waking up
You paint your reflection in my eye
I wonder if you've noticed
I can't look away

You're inches from my fingertips
I've come as close as I can get
I'm reaching but the rest is up to you
'Cause I don't ever wanna miss
Being here with you like this
I'm trying but it's all that I can do
I'm reaching but the rest is up to you

Just you say
So you say
It's a brilliance meant to fade
Love is wild like a fire burning
Underneath the rain
But this is not the same

You're inches from my fingertips
I've come as close as I can get
I'm reaching but the rest is up to you
Yeah, 'cause I don't ever wanna miss
Being here with you like this
I'm trying but it's all that I can do
I'm reaching but the rest is up to you
Up to you
Ahh

Girl you are like summer rain
Soft and warm
And delicate
And I am a foolish boy
Trying to catch every drop
That I can of it

    General Commenthow has no one commented yet?!

    this song is amazing. the lyrics just capture that feeling you get inside of you when you have a crush/are in love and you just dont know exactly whats going on in the other person's head. you're praying that they feel the same and that the feelings they have for you aren't fading. it takes 2 people to make a relationship work, and you just have to trust the other person enough to hold their end of it and not loose that brilliant feeling you get when youre around them.

    marry me, jason?

    General CommentThis song is obviously talking about love.

    "girl, you are like summer rain
    soft and warm and delicate"
    "and i can't get enough.."

    He first states the beautiful traits of the girl and tries to prove that he does love her and always will.

    "i've come as close as i can get
    i'm reaching but the rest is up to you."
    "and you say, so you say
    it's a brilliance meant to fade"

    The girl isn't sure she believes in love so he's waiting for her decision because he's already made up his mind which is to be with her forever.

    General Commentthis song is so amazing, both lyrically, and musically. jason describes perfectly the feelings you get when you feel when you care so deeply about someone. and how you feel vunerable because you arnt for sure whether or not the other person feels the same way.
    this song is perfect for new relationships.

    My Opinion"girl, you are like summer rain
    soft and warm and delicate
    and i am a foolish boy
    tryin' to catch every drop of you on my tongue..
    but there's just too many
    and i can't get enough.."


    he can't get enough of her beauty


    "you're inches from my fingertips
    i've come as close as i can get
    i'm reaching but the rest is up to you.
    cause i don't ever wanna miss
    being here with you like this
    i'm trying but it's all that i can do.
    i'm reaching but the rest is up to you.."


    her everything is true and real but he is being kept at arms length and he's saying I'm ready to take the plunge when you are..


    "girl you are the morning sky
    glowing calm with burning light
    and as i am waking up
    you paint your reflection in my eye(i)
    wonder if you've noticed
    i can't look away.."


    he continues to be enamored and captivated by her


    "you're inches from my fingertips
    i've come as close as i can get
    i'm reaching but the rest is up to you.
    cause i don't ever wanna miss
    being here with you like this
    i'm trying but it's all that i can do.
    i'm reaching but the rest is up to you.."


    see above


    "and you say, so you say
    it's a brilliance meant to fade
    love is wild like a fire
    burning underneath the rain
    but this is not the same..."


    she doesn't believe something so pure could possibly exist and that love bgeing like a fire can quite simply be destroyed by the rain washing it away.

    General Commentits amazing how perfect his description of love is. Though there is no more analysis of this song, it is obvious that most everyone can relate to the uncertainty of falling in love and waiting for the lover to reciprocate the feelings.
