Peter Gabriel - Red Rain. Simply Three - Rain (Original Song). Peter Gabriel - Red Rain. 1 Background and reception. 2 "Red Rain" album appearances. The song is a combination of several inspirations. The lyrics directly reference a recurring dream Gabriel was having where he swam in his backyard pool drinking cold red wine. Another version of the dream had bottles in the shape of people falling from a cliff. Once they smashed with impact onto the ground, the people-shaped bottles had red liquid coming out, and then it began to rain the same red liquid. Earlier in his solo career, Gabriel had an idea for a movie, Mozo. In it, villagers were punished for their sins with a blood-red rain. Red Rain" was to be the theme song

Red rain is coming down Red rain Red rain is pouring down Pouring down all over me. I am standing up at the water’s edge in my dream I cannot make a single sound as you scream it can’t be that cold, the ground is still warm to touch (Hay ay ay we touch) This place is so quiet sensing that storm. Red rain is coming down Red rain Red rain is pouring down Pouring down all over me. Well I’ve seen them buried in a sheltered place in this town They tell you that this rain can sting, and look down There is no blood around See no sign of pain Hay ay ay no pain Seeing no red at all, see no rain

Red rain coming down Red rain Red rain is pouring down Pouring down all over me. And I can't watch any more No more denial It's so hard to lay down in all of this. Red Rain is the opening song and the second single taken from Peter Gabriel’s fifth album, So. The lyrics were inspired by a series of dreams Gabriel had in which he swam in a pool of red wine, then saw wine bottles shaped like people falling off a cliff. Once the bottles smashed to pieces at the bottom, they would leak a red fluid, which it then began to rain – the red rain.

Red rain is coming down Red rain Red rain is pouring down Pouring down all over me.
