Greta Van Fleet ~ Heat from Above

A blog reader emailed me this music video after reading my comments about Tania Marie’s “Reframing Your Well Being.” Last night I learned that the synchronous rainstorm I described appeared to be even more specific than I knew. A local friend stopped by yesterday to pick up some of my extra tomatoes. She asked if we’ve had any rain here for weeks.

I said, “Yes, it rained hard the other night. It started pouring the moment I began reading a New Yorker article on the megadrought out West. As soon as I finished the article, the storm rolled away. Only a gentle rain kept falling.”

“What?! We haven’t had rain for weeks! How did you get rain?”

I shrugged my shoulders and said, “Sometimes I live in a different universe.”

Anyway, back to the song. It arrived as a private reply to my blog post. The band name and lyrics hit me as synchronous whammies related to something else, and it played as the soundtrack behind this morning’s dream. Since it’s still playing in my head, I thought I’d share it here:

Lyrics:

“Heat Above”

by Greta Van Fleet

Sorrows of the earth
May our tears of rain wash down to bathe you
This is what life is worth
When the fires still burn and rage all around

Can you hear that dreadful sound
Fire still burning on the ground

Follow the fearsome sound
As they march to battle, hear the drums pound
We do not fight for war
But to save the lives of those who do so

Can you hear that dreadful sound
Fire still burning on the ground

Can you feel my love
Rising with the heat above
Life’s the story of
Ascending to the stars as one

Marching across the land
Is a peaceful army joining the band
Walking hand in hand
To an anthem loudly sung where they stand

Can you hear that dreadful sound
Fire still burning on the ground

Can you feel my love
Rising with the heat above
Life’s the story of
Ascending to the stars as one
