"Above The Clouds" as written by and Paul John Weller....
Autumn blew its leaves at me,
Threatening winter as I walked
Summer always goes so quick, barely stopping like my thoughts
Which dip and spin and change so fast
I have to wonder, will I last

Through the windows of the train,
I caught reflections of a paper cup,
Hanging small in a pale blue sky,
Never knowing which way's up

Above the clouds, what's to be found,
I have to wonder, will I be around
As my anger shouts, at my own self doubt,
So a sadness creeps, into my dreams
When you're scared of living but afraid to die
I get scared of giving and I must find the faith to beat it

I must be me that's rushing by,
Time just lingers on the wind.
Bristlin' through my open fears,
I wonder what it's going to bring

Above the clouds, what's to be found,
I have to wonder, will I be around

Run and hide, run and hide
I catch the sail at evening's tide

    General CommentThink it's simply about being inquisitive and unsure of your future. Wondering what's 'above the clouds' is like thinking about what will happen if you aim higher.

    One of my favourite Weller solo tracks. Perfect for a summer afternoon.
