"Here It Comes"
"Lay Down"

"Here It Comes" is a song by the English band Strawbs. It did not appear on any of their studio albums, but it was included on two compilation albums: Strawbs by Choice and Halcyon Days. Written by bandleader Dave Cousins, "Here It Comes" shows definite pop influences and a more commercial view to song-writing, a trait that would extend to the next single, "Lay Down".


The B-side track "Tomorrow" is taken from the Grave New World album and is a band composition, although the main lyrical idea is Dave Cousins's and stems from the feelings Cousins had at the decision taken by Rick Wakeman to leave the band at the end of recording the previous album From the Witchwood.
