TIME IS A TEMPEST
John Broomhall / John Thompson
As sung by Cloudstreet on "Dance up the Sun" (2008)

Time is a tempest and we are all travellers.
We are all travellers; we are all travellers.
Time is a tempest and we are all travellers,
Travelling through the storm.

Our cities are crowded; our forests are falling,
War clouds above, angry voices are calling.
Five minutes to midnight is no time for stalling.
It's time to share our load.

So lift up your voices and sing of the wind and rain.
Sing of the wind and rain; sing of the wind and rain.
Lift up your voices and sing of the wind and rain,
Travelling through the storm.

For time is a tempest and we are all travellers.
We are all travellers; we are all travellers.
Time is a tempest and we are all travellers,
Travelling through the storm.

They've poisoned the oceans; they've dammed the great rivers.
They've killed all the jungles; they're takers, not givers.
They call it progress; well, it gives me the shivers.
We're in for a winter that's cold.

So lift up your voices and sing of the wind and rain.
Sing of the wind and rain; sing of the wind and rain.
Lift up your voices and sing of the wind and rain,
Travelling through the storm.

For time is a tempest and we are all travellers.
We are all travellers; we are all travellers.
Time is a tempest and we are all travellers,
Travelling through the storm.

So brothers and sisters, we'll join hands together.
With love in our struggle, we'll face the foul weather.
And when the sun shines through, under blue skies we'll gather.
Our journey will take us home.

So lift up your voices and sing of the wind and rain.
Sing of the wind and rain; sing of the wind and rain.
Lift up your voices and sing of the wind and rain,
Travelling through the storm.

For time is a tempest and we are all travellers.
We are all travellers; we are all travellers.
Time is a tempest and we are all travellers,
Travelling through the storm.
