Picture of Clouds | Rock Ballad | Free Royalty Free Music Download

picture-of-coulds

Hi, this is a rock ballad song I wrote about 5 years ago that I have been meaning to record. You might say this is similar to Pearl Jam or Alice in Chains.

You can read the lyrics in the video. Its about loving your kids and how raising them is worth all the trouble.

People have been asking if all this new vocal music is me singing and it is. I have an amazing new mic called the “Blue Yeti” that has inspired me to always release a vocal track first. I also just put up my voice over reel on my acting site.

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” ~Rabindranath Tagore  

You can use this free and royalty free if you credit me (or use an optional image). Or donate at least $10 without credit. Check my FAQ for more info. If you need more instrumental music check out my package of 77+ royalty free mp3s.

Please forward this to friends, family and colleagues! Email, Twitter, Facebook is all great. Even if you are not using this track somebody else might or they might just connect with the song. I really appreciate that.

Just right click “Save As” to download the MP3:

Picture of Clouds Chords and Lyrics

The child’s drawing God in candle wax
Making finger paint hearts with tiny hands
Whispering about butterflies to her Mom in the morning
Having breakfast with her daughter and in love with the story

Nothing is free and you can starve alone
Wed to her man and a place and a home
Willing to face things she can sleep without sinking
And stay alive by thinking about her baby painting a
Picture of clouds, picture of clouds

The little one plays violin like it was a memory inside
The tune is haunting like a dream you can recognize
Mother can hear her through the door and is proud
Helping her mind escape from the debt and their town

Nothing is free and you can starve alone
Wed to her man and a place and a home
Willing to face things she can sleep without sinking
And stay alive by thinking about her baby painting a
Picture of clouds, picture of clouds

It can all come together with a gentle touch
No need to roam when you have so much
Nothing has been better since she arrived
Yeah life can happen and you do more than survive

On the porch coloring canvas with spinning suns
The girl is fierce like a lion not yet unleashed on the world
Far from things wicked and tattooed now she plays cello
Mother surprises her with lemonade and Jell-o

Nothing is free and you can starve alone
Wed to her man and a place and a home
Willing to face things she can sleep without sinking
And stay alive by thinking about her baby painting a
Picture of clouds, picture of clouds
The suns always shining, the stars are aligning, in a picture of clouds
