  1. From Now On

From the recording Coming Up From Down Under

In cart Not available Out of stock

This is the one moment of pure calm. There is still a restless time signature, and a restless chord sequence on the chorus, but the overall feeling is one of resolution. Actually it was born of one of the most restless, stressful periods of my life... and maybe that is why. Music is an escape, and writing music can be an escape. I guess I was writing about hope.

Lyrics

In a world that's so fast, that you can't catch your breath
I have waited and searched so long for
Someone to come, when the heavy rains fall
To deliver me out of the storm
It's all behind me and the world is new
New life inside us from now on
Like a phoenix from the ashes, I have come to you
In a big new sky, above an ocean of blue
 
From now on, cool water's, come to carry me
And the past is swept away
From now on, I am all, that I can be
And tomorrow begins from now on
 
Well I waited for love, thinking maybe this time
Always ended up where I started
Just when I thought, it was never to be
I fell straight to the heart of my dream
And found  a love that won't just blow away
No storm will scare me from now on
So from a faraway land, I'm flying back to you
And the sun's coming up, the horizon is blue
 
CHORUS
 
Carry me, sweep me away
From now on, I am all, that I can be
And tomorrow begins from now on
