"Winds Of Change" as written by and Ronald S. Altbach Edward Tuleja....
Winds of change blow 'round my door
Is this the year I've been waiting for?
Worlds in motion endlessly
Cosmic ocean flows into my heart

Part of me would like to be (would like to be)
A shining lighthouse for all to see (for all to see)
When the dark night hides the sun
Shine a light for everyone to see
Isn't that the way it should be?

I am no stranger to a world of change
There are always situations to rearrange
But there's something special 'bout this quiet dawn
It seems to sing a song to everyone
It's dawning on and on and on

Of change are here at last (are here at last)
The clouds have lifted, the storm has passed (the storm has passed)
Nights we've known are on the run
And there's a bright and shining sun
For everyone to see
Winds of change

(Won't last forever)
(Won't last forever)
(Won't last forever)

    General CommentThis is unquestionably a lost gem when it comes to Beach Boys ballads. They don't have very many songs in their catalogue that have this gentle yet lush sound. It's produced to have a very 'final' feel to it, and it seems out of place except at the end of an album or playlist (it's the last track on its album: "MIU").
    Obviously this song is about change. First the singer questions if it's going to be good, or just another letdown. Then it goes into the two verses that leave the song open for all kinds of different interpretations... I tend to just see it as someone kind of starting their life and being something of a role model or just a good person. At the end of the song the change is sweeping away all the bad of the past. The repeating "wont last forever" can be taken differently, but I think it's kind of like your conscience telling you to act on the change/opportunity because it wont always be there.
    Overall, a beautiful song that should be in anyone's Beach Boys collection. (PS - The 'won't last forever' line is basically copied and pasted from the end of their own song "When I Grow Up", though I don't know why).
