I heard this song on a recent, sunny day, and it hit me in a way it never had before. I realized that it describes the great relief I feel, having put religion behind me. It's practically an atheist anthem, except for that little reference to prayer. So I changed a few words...
I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW (my version)
I can see clearly now, religion's gone.
I can see all obstacles in my way.
Gone are the christian clouds that had me blind.
It's gonna be a bright, bright, sunshiney day!
Look all around, there's nothing but blue skies!
Look straight ahead, nothing but blue skies!
I think I can make it now, the pain is gone.
All of the bad feelings have disappeared.
Here is the rainbow I've been hoping for.
It's going to be a bright, bright, sunshiney day!
