Lyrics to Little Dragon’s “After The Rain”

“After The Rain”
Words written by Yukimi Nagano

After the rain the temperature dropt
And covered in ice was my window top
I say goodbye I wave my hand
As a thousand doves fly
Across the blackened night
After the rain we forget
We make sure we gain then we leave it
‘Cause were a nation of forgetters
Oh after the rain we pretend
It’s easier to begin without looking back

‘Cause all at once air so thin
And there’s nothing left to breath in
After the rain we forget
After the rain we forget

Behind a dream so rosy and red a pile of things to forget
A voice of the past tiptoes in a cracking ghost whispering
After the rain we forget
We make sure we gain then we leave it
‘Cause were a nation of forgetters

After the rain we forget
After the rain we forget

People where have you been
Have you been hiding
In you big houses
People after the rain
Will your life
Will it ever be the same?
Oh people what will you do?
When your luck
When it turns on you
Wow, people after the rain
Will your life
Will it ever be the same?

Little Dragon perform “Constant Surprises” and “After The Rain”

The much overlooked Little Dragon LP – minus the ever popular “Twice” – has spawned quite a few songs to rival that which I’ve already mentioned; my personal favourite being the haunting “Place To Belong”. While scouring a few pages for content, I came across two videos in particular from a show at Back Booth. The videos highlight the performances (in full) of “Constant Surprises” and “After The Rain”. They were produced by North Avenue Studios, and brought to life by Parafora Presents and thedropp.com. These, once again, are stupendous performances … so spread the word if you know of any doubters.
