A little fall of Rain (Lea Salonga & Michael Ball, from Les Miserables)

Good God, what are you doing?
'Ponine, have you no fear?
Have you seen my beloved?
Why have you come back here?

Took the letter like you said
I met her father at the door
He said he would give it
I don't think I can stand anymore

Eponine, what's wrong?
There's something wet upon your hair
Eponine, you're hurt
You need some help
Oh, God, it's everywhere!

Don't you fret, M'sieur Marius
I don't feel any pain
A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt me now
You're here, that's all I need to know
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close
And rain will make the flowers grow.

But you will live, 'Ponine - dear God above,
If I could heal your wounds with words of love.

Just hold me now, and let it be.
Shelter me, comfort me

You would live a hundred years
If I could show you how
I won't desert you now...

The rain can't hurt me now
This rain will wash away what's past
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close
I'll sleep in your embrace at last.

The rain that brings you here
Is Heaven-blessed!
The skies begin to clear
And I'm at rest
A breath away from where you are
I've come home from so far
So don't you fret, M'sieur Marius

I don't feel any pain
A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt me now

That's all I need to know
And you will keep me safe
And you will keep me close

MARIUS(in counterpoint)
Hush-a-bye, dear Eponine,
You won't feel any pain
A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt you now
I'm here

I will stay with you
Till you are sleeping

And rain...

And rain...

Will make the flowers...

Will make the flowers... grow...

(She dies. Marius kisses her, then lays her on the ground)

She is the first to fall
The first of us to fall upon this barricade

Her name was Eponine
Her life was cold and dark, yet she was unafraid.

We fight here in her name

She will not die in vain.

She will not be betrayed.

(They carry her body off)
