"The Big Sky" as written by and Kate Bush....
They look down
At the ground
Missing
But I never go in now

Im looking at the big sky
Im looking at the big sky now
Im looking at the big sky
You never really understood me
You never really tried

That cloud, that cloud
Looks like ireland
C'mon and blow it a kiss now
But quick

'Cause its changing in the big sky
Its changing in the big sky now
Were looking at the big sky
You never understood me
You never really tried

This cloud, this cloud
Says Noah
C'mon and build me an ark
And if you're coming, jump
'Cause were leaving with the big sky
Were leaving with the big sky
Were leaving with the big sky
Were looking at the
Were looking at the
And we pause for the jets
Hup, hup, in the big sky

Were leaving with the big sky
You want my reply?
What was the question?
I was looking at the big sky

Were looking at the
Tell 'em, sisters
Rolling over like a great big cloud
Rolling over with the big sky
Rolling over like a great big cloud
Rolling over with the big sky
Rolling over like a great big cloud
Rolling over with the big sky
Rolling over like a great big cloud
Rolling over with the big sky

Rolling over like a great big cloud
Rolling over with the big sky
Rolling over like a great big cloud
Rolling over with the big sky
Rolling over like a great big cloud
Rolling over with the big sky
Rolling over like a great big cloud
Rolling over with the big sky
Rolling over like a great big cloud
Rolling over with the big sky
Rolling over like a great big cloud
Rolling over with the big sky

    General CommentThere's also a reference to interviewers/the press... the opening two lines (she rarely does interviews) and the "You never understood me / You never really tried..."

    General Commenteverything passes by like clouds - the world too - reference to Noah's Ark sounds apocalyptic - despite to the cheerful music of the song
