  1. After the Rain

From the recording In It Together

Lyrics

AFTER THE RAIN
The wind is blowing ‘cross the bay
As the storm clears eastwards and away
The lightning’s still flashing o’er the sea
As the last few raindrops fall free

There’s a village, in the dust, on the plain
Surrounded by crops that have failed again
Everyone’s standing out in the heat of the sun
Just praying for the storm clouds to come

(chorus)
Yes it’s precious, so precious, to everyone
The perfect antidote to the sun
When all seems lost, there’s all to gain
Yes everything is sweeter after the rain

The Lavant’s been dry all summer long
But now in autumn the dry spell’s gone
And the river’s sweet murmur can be heard again
Yes everything is sweeter after the rain

(chorus)

The wind’s stopped blowing it’s a beautiful day
The sunlight’s a’ shimmering across the bay
Everything’s washed clean and green again
Yes everything is sweeter after the rain
Everything is sweeter after the rain
Everything is sweeter after the rain
Yes everything is sweeter after the rain
