There's thunder clouds
Round the hometown bay
As I walk out
In the rain
Through the sepia showers
And the photoflood days

I caught a fleeting glimpse
Of life
And though the water's
Black as night
The colours of Scotland
Leave you young inside

There must be a place
Under the sun
Where hearts of olden glory
Grow young

There's a vision
Coming soon
Through the faith
That cleans your wound
Hearts of olden glory
Will be renewed

Down the glens
Where the headlands stand
I feel a healing
Through this land
A cross for a people
Like wind through your hands

There must be a place
Under the sun
Where hearts of olden glory
Grow young

    General CommentMinor correction, the lyrics are "Down the lens where the headland stands." It took me ages to figure out, he's looking at old photos. "Through the sepia showers ad the photoflood days..." I only realised that last month! I love this too, it is really breathtakingly beautiful. Really takes you there.
