Pick Out Your Own Cloud

Today’s post features a new-ish song/poem, that we’ll record for our next Sweet Jones record.  It’s called Pick Out Your Own Cloud.  I’ve been facing this subject matter in full throttle action this past week or life; anyone in the creative fields can relate, I’m sure.  Do enjoy, and then go pick out your own cloud 🙂

I’ve been waiting around
For so long, so for something that can’t be found
I’ve searched high and low ground
For the terms and words and answers renowned

All the while, still listening
For your sound
All the while, still listening
For your sound

I’ve been waiting in vain
For the station to announce my train
I’ve been playing a game
Where every day, all the rules change

But I still play and bet everything
In your name
I still play and bet everything
In your name

Comparing everything
To anything on anyone else’s path
Quickly slows our pace
Run your own race, pave your own path

Choose to laugh
In the face of ego’s wrath
Choose to laugh
In the face of ego’s wrath

When you come to closed doors and big walls
When knocking and jumping does nothing at all
Lose your doubt
Choose another route
Get back to your roots
And do what makes you proud
Do what makes you proud

Who needs the crowd
That only shouts in the dark so loud
Grab the straps of your boots
Grab your tools and build your own town

Pick up your wings and sing
And pick out your own cloud
Pick out your own cloud

Pick up your wings and sing…Pick out your own cloud
