Facebook post, March Friday 13th 2020:
I wrote this song more than twenty years ago and it was released in 2001. I haven’t listened to or thought about it since then but when I opened my phone today it came on all of its own from someone’s playlist on this streaming service that I don’t even have a subscription for anymore. God knows how that happened.
It’s talking about this time right now. A time I apparently could see coming in those, what I now realize were, pretty idyllic days. And it has a message:
“There’s a storm that’s gonna blow tonight
There’s a cloud that’s gonna darken the sky
There’s a fire going on in the West
So hurry darling we’re gonna have to love our best”
(Ironically after having posted about how we should all boycott Spotify the other day... this was the only way I could share this song legally, as I don’t have the rights myself to this recording).
