Rainy Night Music



Wonderful and haunting soundtrack of the movie "Before the Rain". Spend the 45 minutes required to listed to all of it, and then go find the movie and watch it.

Here are two pieces that I wrote to this music (from the archives circa 2004-05):

[A Mouthful of You]

City streets on the window,
Are reflections of this day:
Passing people, cabs and buses,
Memories of urgent lovemaking
Dissolving into shades of gray.

Ominous flash of sheet lighting,
Twitching branches of birds and trees,
Dull honking of vehicles and desire.
The world, Darling, falls away when my mouth
Fills up with pieces of you just as windows
Are obliterated by the splashing rain.

[Right Now]

We are on the tricky slope
Of talk, as you urge me to
Say what I am feeling right
Now.

Right now, my darling,
We are making love, right

Now, we are feeding our hunger
For certainty against dust, right

Now, my hands are pouring
Camphor into your hair, right

Now, our bodies are conversing in
A language they both know, right

Now, your right eyelash is fluttering against
My right shoulder like a raven’s wing, right

Now, this black cab is driving
Into London’s thin rain, right

Now eternity is flashing by me, and is
Falling on your cheeks as tears, right
Now.
