This song didn’t make the final play but it was kind of what launched it for me… We had all done a huge amount of work on a Saturday afternoon to get the “Letters To Daddy” set from Westport CT (long story), packed up and crammed in peoples cars and vans to take down to the New York Musical Theater Festival the next day. It was pouring rain. By the time we were done the clouds cleared and the sun came out. It was a sign.

I See The Blue Breaking Through
Song # 401 | 10/7/09 | CD: tbd
Now what? We begin to begin again
Now that the rain has decided to end
And our hearts are certainly on the mend
(Can you comprehend?)
How good it feels to look up and see
Blue sky begin to break through and The
Clouds of grey beginning to blow away
Gravity. Sometimes drags you down
Relax. Stretch out upon the ground
Look up. And watch the blue break through
I see the blue breaking through
Do you catch a glimpse of it too?
What’s it like to be brand new?
I can’t say I knew it would work this way
Had a moment when I had to keep fear at bay
But at the end of a very long day
(I have to say we found a way)
To have fun while we got the job done
And I want to thank everyone
Who joined in and helped us on our way
(hip hip hooray)
So what’s next?
Where do we go from here?
Climb with me up to where the air is clear
And watch the blue break through for you…
