Bouncing in my Brain

Since I listened to this CD on the way home from Florida, it has stayed with me. I always loved Cat Stevens' music and for some reason, this is the one whose lyrics I can't stop pondering.

Don't you feel a change a coming
from another side of time
breaking down the walls of silence
lifting shadows from your mind

Placing back the missing mirrors
that before you couldn't find
filling mysteries of emptiness
that yesterday left behind

And we all know it's better
Yesterday has past
now let's all start the living
for the one that's going to last

Yes we all know it's better
Yesterday has past
now let's all start the living
for the one that's going to last

Don't you feel the day is coming
that will stay and remain
when your children see the answers
that you saw the same

when the clouds have all gone
there will be no more rain
and the beauty of all things
is uncovered again

Don't you feel the day is coming
and it won't be too soon
when the people of the world
can all live in one room

when we shake off the ancient
shake off the ancient chains of our tomb
we will all be born again
of the eternal womb

(Cat Stevens from the CD "Teaser and the Firecat"...lyrics to "Changes IV")
