"Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face Stars fill my dream I'm a traveler of both time and space To be where I have been..." Originally titled Driving To Kashmir, Plant wrote the lyrics in 1973 while driving through the Sahara Desert on the way to the National Festival of folklore in Morocco. Nothing, in fact, to do with Kashmir, in India, at all. - https://bit.ly/2FQkk22

Of the track vocalist Karen Peris says: “The Brothers Williams Said is about a sense of misunderstanding or labelling that can happen to people who have a quiet nature. The refrain ‘see you tomorrow’, which is also the name of the album, is the phrase that turns the song around to possibility and hopefulness.” - https://bit.ly/2uTPGmx
