"Distant Thunder" as written by and Richard Clapton....
You hear a lot of talk about
Dignity and finding sanity
These words have such a hollow sound
But be free, be free with me

These are the days we have been waiting for so long
But now is the time to set things right
Right here at home

Distant thunder
Down along the front
Don't surrender
'Til we set things right at home
Mama, mama,
Let me lay down on your breast
Ol' man thunder is gonna get you yet

There is no doorway to the past
Walk on, just keep moving on
Only a fool would try to rule the stars
But be free, just be free with me

These are the days we have been waiting for so long
And now is the time to set things right
Right here at home

Distant thunder
Down along the front
Don't surrender
'Til we set things right at home

Mama, mama,
Let me lay down on your breast
Ol' man thunder is gonna get you yet
