This is another of my favourite piece in the musical Les Miserables. In this part, Eponine, the person who risked her life helping Marius deliver a letter to Cossette returns back to the Barricade. She was shot on the way back.. and this was the sin where she was suppose to die

For those who are wondering, why all Lyrics.. I have to admit.. I am writing this secretly as I am bored dealing with my many tender document.

Title: A Little Fall Of Rain

Eponine
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.

Marius
But you will live, ‘Ponine – dear God above…
If I could close your wounds with words of love…

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

Marius
You would live
A hundred years
If I could show you how
I won’t desert you now…

Eponine
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

[Together, at the same time]

[Eponine]                                    [Marius]
So don’t you fret, M’sieur Marius       Hush-a-bye, dear Eponine
I don’t feel any pain                       You won’t feel any pain
A little fall of rain                           A little fall of rain
Can hardly hurt me now                  Can hardly hurt you now
I’m here
That’s all I need to know
And you will keep me safe               I will stay with you
And you will keep me close              Till you are sleeping
And rain
And rain
Will make the flowers…                   Will make the flowers…
[Dies]                                          Grow.
[She Died, Marius Kisses her, then lay her on the ground]

Lets enjoy this piece together
