Bouncing off Clouds

Clyde

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Bouncing off of Clouds we were
Is there a love Lost and Found

Make it easy
Make this easy
it's not as heavy as it seems
Wrapped in metal
wrapped in ivy
paint it in mint ice cream

We could be Bouncing off the top of this Cloud
I'll put on my silver
We could be Bouncing off the top of this Cloud

Failure to respond but
I did. but did you listen

Bouncing off the top of this Cloud
I'll put on my silver
About what you said, has it come to this?
I'll put on my silver
Bouncing off the top of this Cloud

Well you can stare all day at the sky
But that won't bring her back
that won't bring her back
You say you're waiting on fate
But I think fate is now
I think fate is now
Waiting on us

Make it easy
easy easy
we could make this easy
easy love easy
we could make this easy
make this easy
it's not as heavy as it seems
wrapped in metal
wrapped in ivy
blue umbrellas now smiling

We could be Bouncing off the top of this Cloud
I'll put on my silver
About what you said, has it come to this?
I'll put on my silver

Bouncing off the top of this Cloud
I'll put on my silver
About what you said, has it come to this?
I'll put on my silver
Bouncing off the top of this Cloud

Bouncing off of Clouds we were


Tori Quotes

"Sometimes the songs just come. I don't know where they come from... I really don't. I think maybe when you're reading lots of art books and you're living your life and you're having experiences, they collect. You become sort of a walking encyclopedia as a creator, whether you're a novelist or a poet or a painter or a filmmaker or a musician. You collect these experiences and you must, if you're present, then you just file them away and you're not even aware of it. And then they come, sometimes when you're not even thinking about them literally. I do set aside time every day to compose. Even if I'm just walking down a street I don't have to be by an instrument to do that. I can be walking -- I'm here in California -- I can be walking down the Strand or by the water or just alone to my hotel room and I put aside time to be creative. You know you have to put aside time to be creative; if you just wait for the muse to come, well maybe she just isn't [snaps] gonna do all the work for you. I think we have to do some of the work and then maybe the magic just comes out of hours and hours and hours of discipline. So 'Bouncing off Clouds' was probably a mixture of the last couple of years before it was written and it hit me on that day. It was a very blustery day and it had been tumultuous, it had been a tumultuous time for a couple weeks and I just think all those images came together." [Meebo - July 23, 2008]
