Pieces Of Sky

(Beth Orton / Jim O'Rourke)

Lyrics

These memories are just pieces of sky
Pieces of something much bigger than I
To anyone else just endless blue
I see time framed an image of you
These memories haunt me like the moon
Holds the sea like the sky holds a sun
The sea holds my tears and carries me
My heart is too heavy for one

When it's over
It's over
I best get busy living
Been a long time gone

A dress made of air and webs and dew
The way dreams evaporate as they come true
To anyone else just endless blue
An invisible kite string connects me to you
I know that it's selfish to think you'd come here
There's so many people that must need you near
There's so many people that need to know
That you're still with them even when you go
That you're still with them even when they don't know

When it's over
It's over
I best get busy living
Been a long time gone

How do you know how much I've been missing
Does it add up to some names on a list
Do you know we're just pieces of sky
Pieces of time that keep drifting by

Early Version Lyrics

These memories are just pieces of sky
Pieces of something much bigger than I
To anyone else just endless blue
I see time framed an image of you
These memories haunt me like the moon
Holds the sea like the sky holds a sun
The sea holds my tears and carries me
When my heart is too heavy for one

When it's over
It's over
I best get busy living
I've been a long time gone

A dress made of air and webs and dew
The way dreams evaporate as they come true
To anyone else just endless blue
An invisible kite string connects me to you
I know that it's selfish to think you'd come here
There's so many people that must need you near
There's so many people that need to know
That you're still with them even when you go
That you're still with them even when they don't know

When it's over
It's over
I best get busy living
Been a long time gone

How do you know how much you'll been missing
And does it add up to the names on your list
And do you know we're just pieces of sky
Pieces of time that keep passing by
Invisible pieces of heaven in blue
I know that they're only pieces of you
But pieces go missing before they're through
An invisible kite string connects me to you

When it's over
It's over
I best get busy living
You been a long time gone
I best get busy living
I be a long time gone
