Suite: Clouds, Rain

David Gates

See the clouds adrift so far below

Everchanging as they come and go

Makes me wonder why I'm up so high

When really I am down so low

Of all the wonders I was one allowed

I think that I would always choose a cloud

Always brings my feelings right out loud

Whether I'm ashamed or proud

On this airplane comin' home to you

Sometimes I think I've flown my whole

life through

My whole life... through

As I wing my way to you

See the clouds they're giving life below

In colors that the canvas cannot show

Keeping secrets no one else could know

For I'm the one who told them so

Now and then I get up close to you

I'd like to stay but I'm just passing through

So I'll have to say goodbye...

Until next time I fly.


Make my bed-light the light

Comin' in on the midnight flight

Touch the ground and soon you will be

Safe inside reality

Change your mind-change your name

Still the music it sounds the same

Rainfall don't bother me at all

You see the world reflected on the highway

Come on rainbow-I can't let you go

Before I reach the end of you someway

So the next time raindrops fall

If it makes you climb the walls just think

of green.
