When the Rain Comes ...

I was driving home from a festival in Taranaki. The summer had been very dry and the landscape was parched. Then came the storm and the road turned into a river. It got me thinking about the extremes of climate, how they are becoming more extreme, more often.
And I wrote this song. I hope somehow, somewhere, it makes a difference (special demo recording for Climate Change LSC Songwriting Challenge.

For me, the song is about; yes, there is climate change and things are getting worse; yes, we as human beings are responsible; the challenge is, can we make things better or will we die off before the planet improves again?

When the rain comes

The paddocks red dust and the animals suffer
Grass bone white but the earth will recover
When the rain comes, this land will be green once again

The water’s too deep in the storm without end
Red wounds run freely cut deep in the land
As the rain fades, these hills will be green once again

Chasing dark gold is not feeding the famished
Mining the deep 'til the hunger has vanished
When the tide turns, will the waters run clear once again?

Soft gentle breeze and the warmth of the ocean
Are thrown into turmoil by our generation
When our lights fade, will the air be clean once again?

When our lights fade, will the air be clean once again?
When the tide turns, will the waters run clear once again?
As the rain fades, these hills will be green once again?
When the rain comes, this land will be green once again?
When the rain comes….

You

We have all been in that one relationship where nothing can go wrong, and everything is going right. The God's seemed to have smiled upon you and blessed you with the love of your life. You get those butterflies. That is what this is about!

Here’s what songwriters are saying...

Frettie just keeps getting better and better. I joined because I'm into the feedback process for songwriters. Frettie made that process even better, by expanding my feedback base to the world. Because of Frettie, the potential for songwriters is huge!
