about

Here we go. Now we're into my full on prophetic insight. There is before us a new day dawning. Change is always inevitable, but do you fear it or are you willing to shed the clothes you currently wear in order to embrace what is coming in the new day? Whenever something new comes, something old must fade away. Transition is exciting. Embrace it.

lyrics

I can see a new day dawning
I can see it oh so clearly
I can see it in my minds eye
Like the dawn against a new sky
Like the dawn against a new sky

I can feel the fresh winds blowing
A new reality is growing
I can feel it deep in my emotion
Like crashing waves out on the ocean
Like crashing waves out on the ocean

For every new thing comes my way
Some other thing must surely fade
Before a new day can be born
It must be dark before the dawn
It must be dark before the dawn

Why is it that I'm so afraid
For something old to fade away
Something old to something new
Leading towards a clearer truth
Leading towards a clearer truth

Senses heightened on alert
Shedding pants, removing shirt
Standing naked towards the dawn
I now embrace what is to come
I now embrace what is to come

Every new thing comes my way
Some other thing must surely fade
Before a new day can be born
It's always dark before the dawn
It must be dark before the dawn

about

Rand Swift And The Wayward Band Seattle, Washington

I've been a songwriter forever writing a number of choruses over the years. But then things changed and I found myself out of that world. In retrospect, by some gracious act of love for me.

I continued over the years to write, mostly singing and playing for small crowds - me, the cat, the dog.

It was my middle son, also a songwriter and recording artist, deciding these must be produced. Thanks.
