I can see clearly now

the rain has gone
Have you ever had a song playing in your head, which just kept playing over and over and over again day after day? Me neither. Until a few days ago. For the first couple of days I was not even fully aware that is was playing because I was sort of humming along with it on an semi-conscious level, until suddenly yesterday, I noticed that I was doing this, and I asked myself, 'what is this song'. Have you ever had that happen to you before? Me neither.

Since apparently my unconscious mind has adopted this as my theme song, I thought I would share the lyrics with you...The song, this beautiful song, is titled 'I can see clearly now' and it was written by Johnny Nash in 1972.


I can see clearly now the rain has gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's going to be a bright, bright sunshiny day

I think I can make it now the pain has gone
And all of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I've been praying for
It's gonna be a bright, bright sunshiny day

Look all around there's nothing but blue skies
Look straight ahead nothing but blue skies

I think I can make it now the pain has gone
And all of the bad feelings have disappeared
I can see clearly now the rain has gone
It's gonna be a bright, bright
Sunshiny day
