#SLS for 8/16/20

Jim prompts us with clear/dark/light.   I immediately thought of “I Can See Clearly Now” by Johnny Nash.  This song was #1 with a bullet when it was released in 1972.  I usually say I’m an 80’s baby but I think the 70’s had a much bigger influence on me than I let on.  Without further ado, I hope you enjoy.

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,

I can see all obstacles in my way

Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind

It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day.

I think I can make it now, the pain is gone

All of the bad feelings have disappeared

Here is the rainbow I’ve been prayin for

It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day.

Look all around, there’s nothin but blue skies

Look straight ahead, nothin but blue skies

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,

I can see all obstacles in my way

Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind

It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day.
