about

In this song we dip into my prophetic side. Do you like it when things go right in your life? No one of us should allow ourselves to get mired in the the past, because you can get stuck there and your song, the one you are meant to sing today, may not get sung by you. Where is the future? It is always out in front of you, not in the past and you can't step into the future if you are trapped inside of a rearview mirror. So, take your harps down and sing your song. A new day has dawned and you've got to sing your song.

lyrics

Take your harps down
From their weeping willows
Don't look back, yesterday's gone
Don't look back

Yesterday's gone
Got to let it go now
You can't step into the future
While your trapped inside a rearview mirror

Take your harps down
From their weeping willows
Time for you to sing your song
Time for you to sing your song

The day has dawned
The night is gone
We made it through the darkness
Now the light has come

Take your harps down
Take your harps down
And sing a song
You've got to sing your song

When the Lord turned again
The captivity of Zion
We were just like a people
Caught up in a dream

Your day has dawned
The night is gone
You've traveled through the darkness
Now you light has come

Take your harps down
From their weeping willows
You can't step into the future
Can't step into the future
Can't step into the future
While your trapped inside a rearview mirror

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.
