about

I started writing this song on 13th November 2010, the day Aung San Suu Kyi was released from house arrest. 14 years earlier, she wrote this: “As the sun begins to go down the sky lights up in orange hues. The Burmese refer to this hour as the time of blazing clouds and also the time when the ugly turn beautiful because the golden light casts a flattering glow on most complexions.”

lyrics

There's a certain time of day when the suns going down and the whole sky glows
How I love to watch the world in the hour of the blazing clouds
As the light hits every face every blemish fades and the eyes shine
As we sit here in the warmth and the light of the blazing clouds

And all we see is beautiful
And all we see is beautiful

There is good and bad in everyone you meet, that's the way it goes.
But how I'd love to live my life by the light of the blazing clouds.
So you look past all my faults and my failures and let me look past yours
Letting grace illuminate our hearts like blazing clouds.

And all we see is beautiful
And all we see is beautiful

When the blemishes that I used to know
Get washed away in a heavenly glow
And we finally peel away the shroud
We're living under blazing clouds

And there's no regrets for past mistakes
A little grace is all it takes
'stead of hanging heads we'll be standing proud
Under the light of the blazing clouds

So I'm waiting for the day to come
The hurt and pain are all undone
The mourning's gone and the dancing's come
And there's enough for everyone

And every tear gets wiped away
The long awaited brighter day
The rest is real and joy abounds
Like we're dancing in the blazing clouds.

And all we see is beautiful
And all we see is beautiful
