Music Monday: Cool Change – Little River Band 1979

Posted By on November 18, 2019

In keeping with my steady diet of 1970s music for Music Monday, last week Little River Band’s Cool Change from 1979 triggered a “wish I were sailing” thought LRBCoolChangeYRch311just as it did when I was in college. I recall listening to their albums on the turntable regularly in our dorm room and off campus apartment, although don’t think I actually owned the album (probably one of my roommates)?

Anyway, the Glenn Shorrock written song popped up on Yacht Rock Radio CH 311 and figured it would be a “cool change” of season tune for the blog in mid-November.

Lyrics

If there’s one thing in my life that’s missing
It’s the time that I spend alone
Sailing on the cool and bright clear water

Lots of those friendly people
They’re showing me ways to go
But I never want to lose their inspiration

Time for a cool change
I know that it’s time for a cool change
Now that my life is so prearranged
I know that it’s time for a cool change

Well, I was born in the sign of water
And it’s there that I feel my best
The albatross and the whales
They are my brothers

It’s kind of a special feeling
When you’re out on the sea alone
Staring at the full moon like a lover

Time for a cool change
I know that it’s time for a cool change
Now that my life is so prearranged
I know that it’s time for a cool change

I’ve never been romantic
And sometimes, I don’t care
I know it may sound selfish
But let me breathe the air

Yeah, yeah
Let me breathe the air

If there’s one thing
In my life that’s missing
It’s the time that I spend alone
Sailing on the cool
And bright clear water

It’s kind of a special feeling
Out on the sea alone
Staring at the full moon
Like a lover

Time for a cool change
I know that it’s time for a cool change
Now that my life is so prearranged
I know that it’s time for a cool change

I know it’s time for a cool change
(Time for a cool change)
Well, I know, I know
I know, I know
It’s time for a cool change
Yes, it is, yes, it is yes, it is
You know it’s time for a cool change
