Wednesday Song: “All the Clouds”

 

This song came out pretty quickly today. I’m getting ready to head out of town for a few days to do a Django Jones photo shoot, and I had to get ready to catch my flight. Sometimes I like how songs come out when I don’t give myself much time to write them. It gives me less time to second guess myself. And for whatever reason, I seem to prefer my first guesses.

I’m curious to see how it will be, trying to continue my song a day project when I’m staying on friends’ couches. Whatever recording I do will probably be on my phone. We’ll see how it goes.

Anyway you like it
I’m the one to talk to
I’m the one who’s kind of got it all
All the kinds of people
All the kinds of questions
None of it can mean much to you, doll

But I’ve got something here
That you won’t believe
Not like anything else
I know it’s okay
Don’t go out all alone by yourself

Everything that you do
Someone else is with you
Never tried to spend some time alone
After all the tirades
After all the throw downs
Never did you seem to change your tone

So what could I but say?
I am over it
Anyway I play, I lose
That’s what anyone else would do
If they were in my shoes

Sometimes letting go is hard
Sometimes reaching out isn’t half so far
‘Cause when you can see through
To the sky above
All the clouds covering up all the love

Whither we will go now
Whether it’s an option
Withering and wasting all away
California rainbows after all the rain storms
Leave me here to last another day

But I’ve got something here
That you won’t believe
Not like anything else
I know it’s okay
Don’t go out all alone by yourself

Sometimes letting go is hard
Sometimes reaching out isn’t half so far
‘Cause when you can see through
To the sky above
All the clouds covering up all the love
