After The Rain

Janis Ian/Kye Fleming

I hear the sirens calling. It's Saturday night again
Outside the stars are falling
Smells like rain on the edge of lightening
Distant thunder - I remember...

far from these city streets, my heart beats a distant memory
of children in the silos
Ribboned highways where the corn grows
skyscraper high, I close my eyes

and time stands still
It's the magic of the heart
Tonight you will be lying in my arms
The memory is always the same
after the rain, after the rain
After the rain

Sometimes the walls are papered
with the sound of neighbor's loving in the night
And I feel the heat rising from the street
Years go by here inside

Rain blows against the window
Echoes through this empty room of mine
A picture on the dresser smiles at me as I read your letters
Line by line, I close my eyes

and time stands still
It's the magic of the heart
Tonight you will be lying in my arms
The memory is always the same
after the rain, after the rain
After the rain

It's a restless moon traveling through the clouds
And it shines on me, like it shines on you
and for a while, we cross the miles

and time stands still
It's the magic of the heart
Tonight you will be lying in my arms
The memory is always the same
after the rain, after the rain
After the rain
