The Clouds piled up high
The periwinkle sky
And the water soft and brown
It looks like you could walk on it
And I wonder if I'll stay
Or if I'll go away
To the busyness of town
It looked like you could walk on it
Yeah it looks like you could walk on it
All piled under the old oak tree
The cow told me
I think it's gonna rain
Yeah the cow told me
I think it's gonna rain
And I wonder if I'll stay....

    General CommentOverall, I'm not much of a Victoria Williams fan. However...this song, omg. I've not much of an idea of what the lyrics mean but the music is quite simply gorgeous. The track opens with a cymbal splash + rolling drums then an arpeggiated piano. This sets the musical mood perfectly. Gentle but powerful. At the 2:00 mark, there's a trumpet that comes in and it's as beautiful as music gets. The songs' music evokes a sadness/wistfulness but you'll feel better for having heard this song.
