About On a Clear Day
“On a Clear Day” is from the 1965 Broadway musical On a Clear Day You Can Forever, which starred Barbara Harris and John Cullum. The story concerns a young woman who remembers her reincarnations while under the care of his psychiatrist, played by John Cullum. The production received mixed notices, save the wonderful score by Lerner and Lane.


On a clear day
Rise and 1ook around you
And you’ll see who you are
On a clear day
How it will astound you
That the glow of your being
Outshines every star
You’ll feel part of every mountain sea and shore
You can hear
From far and near
A word you’ve never, never heard before…
And on a clear day…On a clear day…
You can see forever…
And ever…
And ever…
And ever more. . .
