AFTER THE RAIN
(Michel Legrand (m) / Alan Bergman (l) / Marilyn Bergman (l) 1979)
Barbra Streisand 1979
This song formed part of the 1979 concept album 'Wet',
notable by the fact that first song lyrics start
and the last song lyrics end, with the word 'wet'.
Also sung by:
After we love, we bathe in the glow
Rememb'ring what happened a moment ago
Like after the rain, when the wind breathes a sigh
While it's resting on pillows of sky.
Deep in your arms, it's peaceful and warm
Together we lie in a calm that comes after a storm
In a moment or two, we can hear the stars coming through
I love the quiet right after the rain here with you.
After the rain, the birds wanna fly
The trees all in green hang the leaves out to dry
Like puddles and pools, what your eyes let me see
Are their loving reflections of me.
After a while, you touch me and then
I feel like a flower that longs for a shower again
And then lost in a kiss, I could stay for hours like this
Though I don't know just what magic the raindrops contain
I know that everything's wonderful after the rain.
