[Recorded at DARK HORSE (Nashville) 2009.11.14, Unreleased]

“The great Jorge Ben! Probably no Brazilian artist ever influenced me as much as he. Peculiar lyricist, sometimes gloriously deep, sometimes painfully simple. This song seems like it was written for different lyrics. The melody and vocal performance are rather intense, while the lyrics are that of an early 60’s session writer. The song is cynical and the lyrics docile. Of course the mix is splendid, but even so, I always imagined how it would turn out with explosive cynicism. To not aggravate the linch mob, I wrote a version with the excuse that I was translating it to English. The lyrics are about the modern woman, who, desperate for attention, do everything to seem like they were actually born the dolls they fantasise to be – from make-up to silicon. Let the rain fall and reveal the natural beauty and true potential of our women, still overwhelmed by the temptations of technological advance.”

lyrics

Let the Rain Fall
Let the Rain Pour Down

Let the Rain Fall
Let the Rain Pour Down

My Baby’s so sweet,
Tanned, with a complexion so fair.
And I cannot let the rain fall,
On her newly straightened blonde hair.

‘Cause It’s very beautiful,
So soft it’s almost pitiful.
It’s pure and it’s pretty
Like a flower in a swamp.
Yes she wants for this to seem,
So please, rain, don’t be so mean.
This is the way she wants to seem,
So please, please rain, don’t be so mean.

Let the Rain Fall
Let the Rain Pour Down

Let the Rain Fall
Let the Rain Pour Down

Yes, my baby’s so sweet,
But I can still feel the odor of the dye.
Yes, my baby’s so sweet
Yet I can see the colour of the lenses in her eyes.

Yes, she looks so beautiful,
So slick it’s almost pitiful.
Unnatural and gruesome
Like a flower in a swamp.
Yes I want to strip the doll,
So let the rain, let the rain fall.
Oh yes I want to strip the doll
So let the rain, let it fall.

Let the Rain Fall
Let it all pour down
