"Feather on the Clyde" as written by and Michael David Rosenberg....
Well there’s a river that runs through Glasgow
And makes her but it breaks her and takes her into the parks
And her current just like my blood flows
Down from the hills, round aching bones to my restless heart

Well I would swim but the river is so wide
And I’m scared I won’t make it to the other side
Well God knows I’ve failed but He knows that I’ve tried
I long for something that’s safe and warm
But all I have is all that is gone
I’m as helpless and as hopeless as a feather on the Clyde

Well on one side all the lights glow
And the folks know and the kids go where the music and the drinking starts
On the other side where no cars go
Up to the hills that stand alone like my restless heart

Well I would swim but the river is so wide
And I’m scared I won’t make it to the other side
Well God knows I’ve failed but He knows that I’ve tried
I long for something that’s safe and warm
But all I have is all that is gone
I’m as helpless and as hopeless as a feather on the Clyde

Well the sun sets late in Glasgow
And the daylight and the city part
And I think of you in Glasgow
'Cause you’re all that’s safe, you’re all that’s warm in my restless heart

    General CommentWell he sings about the river Clyde (well there’s a river that runs through Glasgow). The Clyde, apparently, torns Glasgow into two halves ( makes her but it breaks her and takes her into the parks and her current just like my blood flows). The one is full of fun (well on one side all the lights glow and the folks know and the kids go where the music and the drinking starts), the other is a lonely place (on the other side where no cars goup to the hills that stand alone) or this is how he sees it. And he is in love and he can't go to meet his lover and only has memories (well the sun sets late in Glasgow and the daylight and the city part and I think of you in Glasgow cos you’re all that’s safe, you’re all that’s warm in my restless heart), so he feels helpless and hopeless (well i would swim but the river is so wide and I’m scared I won’t make it to the other side well God knows I’ve failed but He knows that I’ve tried i long for something that’s safe and warm but all I have is all that is gone i’m as helpless and as hopeless as a feather on the Clyde) . That's the meaning for the Feather on the Clyde for me :)
