Artist's Description

They say you can’t believe
Everything you read in the paper
I wish that were true today

So many loved
So many lost
So many could not get away

And if tears were rain
And prayers a blanket
So many could have been saved
Wish I could ease the pain
Turn back time and the wind
But God has taken what He gave

The wind blew one way
Saved my friend
Then blew the other
Took another home

I can’t stop thinking
In what ifs
But I want to
I’m happy you are here still

And if tears were rain
And prayers a blanket
So many could have been saved
Wish I could ease the pain
Turn back time and the wind
But God has taken what He gave

I’m sure they were strong to the last
They lived too fast
For the sun
I’m sure they loved the hardest
They’d ever done
I know they won

I’m sure this rain is tears
From heaven
To wash away the pain

© words and music Caleb White 2009

Caleb is a good friend ex drum student and a very talented singer/ songwriter drummer. He will post the music to go with this on his facebook page soon.

Photo taken at Wilsons Promontory after the 2005 bush fires just as life started to return. If only hearts were as resilient as nature. The recent spate of Victorian bush fires has also included the Prom burning The Cathedral above Sealers Cove an adjoining mountain only a few kilometers from here.

The ‘saved friend’ is a good mutual mate…

100% of profits will go to the Salvos bushfire Appeal (I’ve put my margin up more than usual as it’s kind of pointless donating unless there’s a bit of money in it).
