"Skywriting" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
Don't Cry
All the songs you sing
All the flowers you bring
Are part of everything there ever was
And will be

Go on
You've got places to be
So many things to see
Don't worry about me
I'm already where I should be

Look up
A plane writes in the sky
For every passer by
No one ever dies
They just write things in the sky

If you
Wanna think about me
Look out above the sea
And you can see that I'm doing
Just Fine

    General CommentSays E of this song:

    "This was one of those situations where you spend way too much time recording lots of parts for a song only to get rid of everything except the acoustic guitar, celeste, vocal and harmonica in the end. Sometimes you have to go really far in the wrong direction to find the right direction."

    General CommentThe first line is obviously referring to a funeral.

    General CommentInteresting, the first impression I got from this song is that E was breaking up with a girlfriend. She should "go on" her own way, he'll be fine going in his direction, and that they are breaking up because they are simply going in different ways rather than there being a conflict. Looking out over the sea means that when she thinks of E, look to the sky and know that he's doing fine.

    Though I'm sure now by reading comments that it was about death instead.
