Lyrics to All Clouds The Sky
All Clouds the Sky (From The Good Hope, National Theatre 2001-2002) .................. How high the price How deep the water That makes widows out of wives For this is not fish you're eating This is men's lives... All clouds the sky The boats are leaving One last goodbye Dark waters call us on The Northern Sea Knows well the sound of grieving How slight the fate We put our trust upon Then go we must No longer can we tarry The water's wide Yet we must go and try And like a bird on a silvery morning Home to your side we will chance to fly ************************** And the water shines like patent leather We search for signs upon this lifeless ground The reckoning sky calls down some heavy weather We've come for fish, and fish need must be found Then go we must No longer can we tarry The water's wide Yet we must go and try And like a bird on a silvery morning Home to your side we will chance to fly And we ride the flood and trust to glory Some planks of wood no thicker than your thumb It's all that keeps the telling of the story From being lost or maybe being won Then go we must No longer can we tarry The water's wide Yet we must go and try And like a bird on a silvery morning Home to your side we will chance to fly All clouds the sky The boats are leaving One last goodbye Dark waters call us on The Northern Sea Knows well the sound of grieving How slight the fate We put our trust upon
