Pick Out Your Cloud


"Your Cloud" by Tori Amos

Such a beautiful song.

Favorite lyrics:

Will this Horizontal Line
when asked
know how to find
Where you end
where I begin




Where the river cross
crosses the lake
Where the words
Jump off my pen
and into your pages

Do you think just like that
You can divide
This
You as yours
Me as mine
to before we were Us

if the rain
Has to separate from Itself
does it say "pick out your cloud?"
pick out your cloud

If there is a Horizontal Line
that runs from the MAP
off your body
straight through the Land
shooting up
right through my heart

Will this Horizontal Line
when asked
know how to find
Where you end
where I begin

How Light can play
and form a Ring of Rain
that can change bows into arrows

Who we were
isn't lost Before
we were Us

Indigo
in his own Blue
always knew this

if the rain
Has to separate from Itself
does it say
pick out your cloud
