High Clouds - played on BBC Radio Wiltshire

Posted on

My song High Clouds was featured on the Jonathan Fido show on BBC Radio Wiltshire last night along with a short interview. You can listen again here (for the next 29 days) - fast forward to 1 hour 20 minutes (ish).


If you just want to hear the song, click play on the video.

Some parts of the planet are flooded, other parts are on fire. Storms are destroying villages and washing cars and lorries downstream like sticks.

Our civilization is an aeroplane aimed at a mountain. We are all going down - in a mass of twisted metal and burning flesh. Your eyes wide open still. Here comes the mountain...


Through high clouds
I'm reaching out to you
Have you seen where they want to go?

This plane is crashing now
it's too late
into the mountain
I can't turn my face away

Going down
no matter what the movie is
there's no escape from here
no emergency landing strip

The sky so blue all around me now
The clouds surround our restricted view
I won't be afraid as the mountains loom
Take hold of my hand and don't ever let me go

The twisted metal frame
steel splinters ripping through
cracking sound of branches
your eyes wide open still

The stinging spitting flames
as the rain comes through
smoke fills up your lungs
can we be here at all

Noone can survive
in this wrecked tin can
I don't think even God
is really listening anymore

The light so pale all around me now
The warm embrace of the afterglow
I won't feel afraid now that we've come home
Take hold of my hand and don't ever let me go
