That Cloud

(Bob Nolan)

 

Sing along with Dave Bourne

 

Not so very long ago

A small young child I used to know

Would rise each dawn

And run to meet the morning sun

Before the sun had quite begun

To warm the earth

And there behold the wondrous things

Of joy and life and flying wings

As they were born

Until that cloud of rancid grey

Came rollin’ in to stay, and stay!

To blind the sun!

And on my hill a blossom rare

Reached up for life that wasn’t there

And cried for we, the sun and me.

And so, I hold it as it dies

And lock it in my mem’ries eyes

For it may be the last I’ll ever see.

And when the children run to play

On some far distant lonely day,

They’ll go, and never know

That they can never be.

 

(Demo performed by Dave Bourne.)
