"Blue Sky" as written by Stephen Andrew Booker and Sophie Delila....
The farther I come the farther I fall
Whatever I knew it was nothing at all
Nothing at all, just making me small
Smaller and smaller
I fall back

Sooner or later with a view from the ground
Chasing the race and the races run you down
Sooner or later with a view from the ground
And a tear in your eye
You say baby why can't we fly
Into the blue sky
Into the blue sky

Be my singing lesson
Be my song
When I tell you I'm falling
You tell me I'm strong
You say trees have grown tall
Birds have flown high
Higher and higher
Goodbye goodbye goodbye
I'll fly over a rainbow
I'll be sun kissed
Sail around the planet Venus
And send a long letter
Way back home
That says all that I know
All that I know is the blue sky
High in the blue sky

The farther I come the farther I fall
Whatever I knew it was nothing at all
Trees have grown tall, birds have flown high
Higher and higher
Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

    General CommentThis is the first Patty Griffin song I ever heard. I still vividly remember hearing it on the radio in my car while driving home from work, and when the DJ said her name and the song's title, I literally went straight to the music store and bought the CD.

    Song MeaningI LOVE this song so much. I feel it's about letting go of everything and melting into the universe. I feel like it's about enlightenment.....that in the end, all I know is that I'm part of everything and that that is beautiful. Might be way off :) But I find it immensely comforting!!!
