"Snowflake" as written by and Kate / Bush....
I was born in a cloud
Now I am falling.
I want you to catch me.
Look up and you'll see me.

You know you can hear me.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
We're over a forest.
There's millions of snowflakes.

We're dancing.
The world is so loud. Keep falling and I'll find you.
I am ice and dust. I am sky.
I can see horses wading through snowdrifts.

My broken hearts, my fabulous dances.
My fleeting song, fleeting.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
My broken hearts, my fabulous dance.

My fleeting song.
My twist and shout.
I am ice and dust and light. I am sky and here.
I can hear people.

I think you are near me now.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
We're over a forest.
It's midnight at Christmas.

The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
I think I can see you.
There's your long, white neck.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.

Now I am falling.
Look up and you'll see me.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
In a moment or two.

I'll be with you.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
Be ready to catch me.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.

    General CommentWhat a fantastic journey this song details. From his birth in the cloud, the snowflake is searching for his mother. From the mother's perspective, she sings softly back to him, "keep falling, I'll find you." Among all the snow, she'll find him. That is her repeated promise throughout the song.

    So many layers possible with this evocative song! Since it's Bertie and Kate singing to one another, it could be a metaphor for his growing up.

    It could also be mother Earth singing to her tiny creation as it left the cloud and headed to earth.

    There could be others. I get lost in the beauty of it all to think beyond those two images.
