Sting - After The Rain Has Fallen Lyrics




The palace guards are all sleeping
Their fires burn into the night
There's a threat of rain on the dark horizon
And all that's left is a quarter moon of light

He climbs up through the darkness
No weapon but his surprise
The greatest thief in the high Sahara
Enters the room where a sleeping princess lies

All your money, your pretty necklace
This is my work on such a night
There's a storm coming over the mountain
I'll be gone long before the morning

After the rain has fallen
After the tears have washed your eyes
You find that I've taken nothing
That love can't replace in the blink of an eye

He was as gentle as the night wind
As no lover had been before
And the rings she wore for her bride groom
Slipped from her fingers and fell to the floor

Take me with you, take me with you
Before my lonely life is set
I've been promised to another
To a man I've never even met

After the rain has fallen
After the tears have washed your eyes
You'll find that I've take nothing
That love can't replace in the blink of an eye

After the thunder's spoken
And after the lightning bolt's been hurled
After the dream is broken,
There'll still be love in the world

She said take me to another life
Take me for a pirate's wife
Take me where the wind blows
Take me where the red wine flows

Take me to the danger
Take me to the life of crime
Take me to the stars
Take me to the moon while we still have time

After the rain has fallen
After the tears have washed your eyes
You'll find that I've taken nothing
That love can't replace in the blink of an eye

After the thunder's spoken
And after the lightning bolt's been hurled
After the dream is broken
There'll still be love in the world
Still be love in the world

    Beg your pardon Sting, I'm your follower, but what an awful video!, no connection with your lyrics.

    jp codnia

    Polluted the good music with a crappy video

    I love this song😊

  14. realguitarshredder

    This is not the original.

  15. Landon Kemp

    I can't help but wonder if a video edit of this song exists, because even though I love the album version, I have a soft spot for this version of it as well.

  23. crzyrdr

    where's the other version of the video where he is wearing white.

  24. Emily Pollifax

    I want his shirt..

  25. adduxe

    It's cool that he's wearing a POLICE t-shirt.  B-)

  26. EasyO

    this is so lame. what happened to you, man. u used to be cool in the 90s. TST and SC were terrific albums. but a douche stays a douche i suppose. 

    Sitizen Kane

    +TheOutlando This was in the 90s.

    EasyO

    +Sitizen Kane 99 granted. ^^

    EasyO

    +Sitizen Kane the song is from 99. this version and perfomance isn´t actually...

  27. Green Light Music Channel

    There's something I find really cool about male artists with an all-female backing band. Prince is another good example.

  28. liquidassets81

    I think it's an ironic portrayal of the women, and a twist on the song:  In the song, the handsome stranger seduces the princess and steals her jewels, but in the video, Sting, the illusory "stud with all the women", teases and seduces the men who think their moves are cool, into thinking that they can have all the women if they come in and hang out with him, but in reality they have nothing to offer the women except their lust. And the women are all an illusion anyway, because in reality Sting is a happily long-married monogamous man crazy in love with his wife. The message is to not get bogged down by illusion, disappointment or rejections, keep going and follow your true passions whether they are music, adventure, or romance, etc, and do it all with your own unique creativity, don't just be a horn dog just chasing tail forever, or you'll wake up one day and realize your life is empty. 

    At least that's what I got out of it…. any other ideas? 

    EasyO

    Sting and monogamous. That's a good one! lol

    Mer Feraine

    @EasyO yes, he cheated on his first wife and apparently on his current one before they married, but they are devoted to eachother

  29. A. G.

    My favorite song from Brand New Day!

    Carla Mata

    In my opinion, a "Thousand Years" is the Masterpeice of that álbum and my favorite song.

    After The Rain Has Fallen

    The palace guards are all sleeping
    Their fires burn into the night
    There's a threat of rain on the dark horizon
    And all that's left is a quarter moon of light
    He climbs up through the darkness
    No weapon but his surprise
    The greatest thief in the high Sahara
    Enters the room where a sleeping princess lies

    All your money, your pretty necklace
    This is my work on such a night
    There's a storm coming over the mountain
    I'll be gone long before the morning

    After the rain has fallen
    After the tears have washed your eyes
    You find that I've take nothing, that
    Love can't replace in the blink of an eye

    He was as gentle as the night wind
    As no lover had been before
    And the rings she wore for her bride groom
    Slipped from her fingers and fell to the floor

    Take me with you, take me with you
    Before my lonely life is set
    I've been promised to another
    To a man I've never even met

    After the tears have washed your eyes
    You'll find that I've take nothing, that

    Still be love in the world

    After the dream is broken, there'll

    Still be love in the world

  31. WhiskeyBrewer

    I love this song, but I do prefer the album version that goes with the original video. This version loses something I don't know what

    greenyKIZ

    @James Cooke I like too many but not his new ones instead of "Last ship"

    WhiskeyBrewer

    @greenyKIZ The Shipyard off Last Ship is a cool one. I like it since it had Brian Johnson from AC/DC singing on it too lol 

    Gonzalo Marsilli

    @James Cooke it sounds like only he voice was used, bass not played by him

    WhiskeyBrewer

    @Gonzalo Marsilli If it still has his bass on its probablly very Low in the mix. But yeah i get what you mean

    Carla Mata

    Totally agree.

  32. Gonzalo Marsilli

    Sting is the only one invited to the lesbian disco

    screenflicker1

    You mean Gordon

  33. Sarah Harder

    Love the song, not the video. I really don't think of his music as "club" music, and I'm a little tired of all the videos out there taking place in a club. At least with techno is makes sense. Also, it seems that the older some musicians get the more they feel the need to show young people baring skin. Sting, you are the epitome of cool and you really don't need to do that. Just my two cents from someone who'd rather listen to your music than just about anyone.

  34. The Toltec

    That Boy is some good...

  35. Indra Seunarine

    understatement of the fucking century what are you new?

  36. Paper Waves

    The Police T-shirt!

  37. Edward Kelly

    Rules :)

  38. Charlotte Callaway

    Sting is my favourite artist by far, however i'm not a fan of this song!

  39. Matthew Barnes

    Was this a mid-life crisis video? Jesus Tap Dancing Christ! He's old enough to be the father to these girls.

    Fakan

    From what I saw in the video, I think the women had their eyes elsewhere.

  40. MaLLeC69

    sting has better girls in clips than fucking 50 cent ;D

  41. Good Boy feeling Better.

    The album 'Brand New Day', is really beautiful. This song is similar to 'Pilgrim' because of the electric guitar.

  42. Broken Archetype

    Album version is so much better

  43. elmntal68

    thumbs up @ QueenMKB1 and sjhgm1 :)

  44. BarbikaPahor

    nice shirt

  45. luvedbratja13

    It is very interesting to read what he has to say about his lyrics in his book of lyrics and then watch the videos. I must stay Sting you still continue to surprise me.

  46. DAVEYBOND007

    I was Stings Driver for the video shot in North Hollywood....... Oh the days my friends!!

  47. Lamina Ferro

    nice pussys xD

  48. jorge manuel silva f. goncalves

    you dont ned the dae four be the star,.. the super star off all still alive =)

  49. TheAgentdanascully

    @QueenMKB1 : Brad Pitt. No. Javier Bardem. Hell, yes.

  50. TheAgentdanascully

    Why is he partying with people who are his kids' age? HAhahha!

  51. Matthew Cundy

    I've got that Police t-shirt.
    Wow what a start to the day.

  52. Petre Fugaciu

    He's still wearing the Police T-Shirt:D

  53. Peter Liu

    WOW!? not the studio version, what is this

  54. unionjackboy

    This song has been ruined! Where is the album version i was looking for!?

  55. ej1236

    0:15 mj

  56. Alexander Pendjurin

    @DonDorni85 ... it's on "Brand New Day":

  57. Claudio Dornbierer

    Can anybody tell me, on what album this version is on?

  58. BaneOfXistence4

    Remember folks, Sting makes the music, not the music videos.

  59. virushunter83

    @Silvia1826
    Agree. I think he thinks this is a way of staying relevant. Personally I don't think he needs to. He's Sting. He'll always be relevant, though his relevance has in my opinion been connected to his creativity. If he makes more like this though, maybe he won't always be relevant.
    Also, I prefer the version on the album to this.

  60. Trenuchet Warrior

    @Silvia1826 no truer words were spoken

  61. Trenuchet Warrior

    The song is gold..... but wtf with the video. its shots of sting then a bunch of scantily clad ugly girls... sting.... ugly girls.
    if it were sting dancing with some good looking girls i could've stomached it but wtf.. no correlation watsoever. horrible direction

    Daniel Chakraborty

    Come on, for a guy who wrote "Seven Days", this seems rather shallow and really out of place. But it isn't. I think he's being sarcastic here. You can't replace true love. No matter how much you try to forget it. No matter where you go. It's true. Think that's what he meant. If you listen to the entire Brand New Day album, though! Sometimes these videos are utter rubbish, seriously!

  62. superslonic

    I like this much more than the original video. Great arrangment! )))

  63. PELE2NCHO

    Seguro que algunos amigos mios y yo hubieramos hecho lo mismo....arrancar la puerta de guajo....de donde las sacan tan lindas...

  64. laguna beach

    Really disappointing uncreative video from STING!.. Seriously are there no videos without sex provocation anymore? Where did art and inspiration go!

  65. Ukredfish

    @LukaArsenalSerbia the guy knows where he is from :)

  66. RIFF0RAFF

    @Silvia1826 I call it middle age crisis.

  67. Krzysztof Es

    like this version

  68. Silvia1826

    @Sol00o

    Lol.

  69. SlimeLime

    That video sucks but the song is great.

  70. Woodrowtracy

    I loved the original version + original video more than this. I can say the same for "Stolen Car".

  71. garyouze2ORAG

    I have said this before, but i believe the presence of the women in this video is meant to be a parody of video's overrun with "babes".

  72. amyleoness

    every body has to leave the darkness sometime!

  73. georgequeue

    This is the kind of video Britney Spears or a hip-hop singer would be part of.

  74. MacGyverBurger

    Love his t-shirt!!! but other then that, the video is lame I think...

  75. jonathanandsophia

    this new version is interesting but very paradoxal knowing Sting. I see a lot of irony about modern world and faith in better things. Interesting version for many reasons!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Yeah Sting has a the Police t-shirt, ha ha ha awesome guy, definitely) :)

  76. Silvia1826

    @bluesplayer86

    Oh I know. He was trapped in a small space in the original, wasn't he?

  77. nakitosz

    nie nie to nie takie fajne

  78. Silvia1826

    @zimnomel

    Same here. :(

  79. zimnomel

    Hmmmm. I've heard this song many times on casette and it must have been another version, orchestrated alternatively and with a bigger chorus. I wonder if that version is up here somewhere.

  80. zimnomel

    @Silvia1826 That video would have been great! I always used to imagine the story as a tale from Arabian Nights. Now I'm disappointed...

  81. Giuliano Tiburzio

    Um dos melhores vídeos que eu já assisti ! Sting detona!

  82. mrsocksman

    This video is horrifuckus

  83. Sam Astaroth

    the original video is the shit... this video blows...

  84. shioriryukaze

    only 3 things i like in this video: the music, sting and the police tshirt. all those other chicks are not needed

  85. Mariguana

    god i fucking hate vevo

  86. QueenMKB1

    I love this song and the video was not what i was expecting. That said I love the video too. Sting is the thief - the piper if you will. Sting is the only man other than Brad Pitt who could pull being in a room full of beautiful women and still be the sexiest thing in the room.

    tracey williams

    QueenMKB1 8 year comment just seen it quality I have took a screen shot queen like it x

  87. Dracofire87

    @Silvia1826 It probably has something to do with it being the dance remix of the song, instead of the original. The original was by FAR the better version.

  88. clallseven

    Don't care for this version musically. A great song ruined by stupid hip-hop, dance club remix bullshit.

  89. J M

    Was that Alicia Keys on keys? If so, who are the other musicians?

  90. faceplant90210

    @ LukaArsenalSerbia Sting was in the police =/

  91. musicxcraze

    I love sting! oh, & the police rock! :)

  92. Tommy Mott

    Wooowa.. that bass line is talkin' the language of vibe!

  93. cokelalo

    when was made this vid, because Sting has THE POLICE t shirt......

  94. AntiphosNox

    Prefer the original version from the CD. So much more beautiful and mysterious...

  95. yohenson

    this video is actually so cool, why?
    because it actually shows the sleaziness of today's party's/MTV clips and push that sleaziness out of the way because of the happiness of this song.
    i thought he was cynical, but he ain't, he's just sophisticated.

  96. garyouze2ORAG

    @eclecticbgirl I agree - I see this song as a parody of the classical 'babes in a music video' style of video.

  97. jujube5160

    the song is 10 years old, isn't the video as well?

  98. Luka Pavlovic

    Sting has a Police t-shirt!
