Cool Rain © Peggy van Zalm

With goodbyes come new times and new horizons
And with these times no wasting time
Let bygones be bygones
I’m not saying I’m leaving without my heart
What I’m saying’s I’m not grieving for things that I have lost
Moving change
Shifting lanes and growing pains
I’m listening to feelings
Invisible language
But I’m not trusting blind
Though I don’t always know where I am
I’m finding me out again.

I’ll take this body
I’ll take this mind
This desire to be alive
Like a thunder storm in the summertime
Ah a cool rain is coming by

Black cockatoos in a blue mountain afternoon
Flying ‘cross the valley
In a ritual salute
My eyes stretch out over the land

Nothing can soothe me like mother natures hand

Now I know, I know exactly where I am
Walking on tightropes across these mountains

Ah a cool rain
Ah can always make me smile
Ah a cool rain
Ah a cool rain’s coming by
