    Wonderful theme, Geoff. During tough days it can be tough to see better days ahead. Thanks for helping me focus on those better days. Now, what to sing?

    Last week was a tough week, and I found myself reaching for this song, just for comfort. It's a powerful number from Stevie Wonder's monumental album Songs In The Key of Life. I wasn't sure I could get a version to work with uke and voices, but I did my best.

    How to get to a better world? This is a start -

    Change your words into truth and then change that truth into love

    Complete lyrics follow.



    As

    As around the sun the earth knows she's revolving
    And the rosebuds know to bloom in early may
    Just as hate knows love's the cure
    You can rest your mind assure
    That I'll be loving you always
    As now can't reveal the mystery of tomorrow
    But in passing will grow older every day
    Just as all that's born is new
    You know what I say is true
    That I'll be loving you always

    (Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky)
    (Until the ocean covers every mountain high)
    (Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea)
    (Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream)

    Don’t you know that true love asks for nothing
    Her acceptance is the way we pay
    Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
    To last through forever and another day

    Just as time knew to move on since the beginning
    And the seasons know exactly when to change
    Just as kindness knows no shame
    Know through all your joy and pain
    That I'll be loving you always
    As today I know I'm living
    But tomorrow could make me the past
    But that I mustn't fear
    For I'll know deep in my mind
    The love of me I've left behind
    'Cause I'll be loving you always

    (Until the day is night and night becomes the day)
    (Until the trees and seas just up and fly away)
    (Until the day that eight times eight times eight is four)
    (Until the day that is the day that are no more)
    (Until the day the earth starts turnin' right to left)
    (Until the earth just for the sun denies itself)
    (Until dear mother nature says her work is through)
    (Until the day that you are me and I am you)

    We all know sometimes life hates and troubles
    Can make you wish you were born in another time and space
    But you can bet your lifetimes that and twice it's double
    That God knew exactly where he wanted you to be placed
    So make sure when you say you're in it, but not of it
    You're not helpin' to make this earth
    A place sometimes called hell
    Change your words into truths
    And then change that truth into love
    And maybe our children's grandchildren
    And their great grandchildren will tell
    I'll be loving you
