about

When you're not ready to give up on something...

lyrics

Cloud

I've seen the snow like frosted sugar.
I've seen the frozen river's path.
I watched the night follow the plane.
The pink moon stayed with me for hours - for hours.
I've seen the white caps dancing
Beneath the Mackerel clouds that stretched.
I thought I saw the shape of a whale
And thought about falling down there...down there...

Break it to me softly...
Break it to me softly...
Break it to me softly...
'Cause I already know.

I've seen the red dust desert.
Spinifex that curls around
Concentric circles and paintings that she made
With grass and stones and footprints,
Footprints...
I've seen the forest layer over layer
Like the jade that rolled in the riverbed.
Uncurling ferns like fireworks in the glen.
The grey waves lapping at the sand - the sand.

Break it to me softly...
Break it to me softly...
Break it to me softly...
'Cause I already know.
I don't wanna come down from my cloud,
No I don't wanna come down from my cloud
No I don't wanna come down from my cloud
Not yet - not yet.

I'm holding all my memories of this altitudinal display
And a year of walking, wandering, looking, hearing everything again
Tuned in.

Break it to me softly...
Break it to me softly...
Break it to me softly...
'Cause I already know.
I don't wanna come down from my cloud,
No I don't wanna come down from my cloud
No I don't wanna come down from my cloud
Not yet - not yet.
