I was born in a cloud...
Now I am falling.
I want you to catch me.
Look up and you'll see me.
You know you can hear me.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
We're over a forest.
There's millions of snowflakes.
We're dancing.
The world is so loud. Keep falling and I'll find you.
I am ice and dust. I am sky.
I can see horses wading through snowdrifts.
My broken hearts, my fabulous dances.
My fleeting song, fleeting.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
My broken hearts, my fabulous dance.
My fleeting song.
My twist and shout.

I am ice and dust and light. I am sky and here.
I can hear people.
I think you are near me now.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
We're over a forest.
It's midnight at Christmas.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
I think I can see you.
There's your long, white neck.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
Now I am falling.
Look up and you'll see me.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
In a moment or two.
I'll be with you.
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.
Be ready to catch
The world is so loud. Keep falling. I'll find you.

    I know exactly what it means for me, because it spoke to me directly on the night of 12/2211. It meant that a woman i had not seen for many years was looking for me; her husband had just died- "now i am falling". My own companion had died not long ago.. "keep falling, i'll find you" "i'll be with you" and "be ready to catch"... She sent me a card on that same night, we reconnected after all those years because of it, and are now very much i love. Miracles do happen, folks!

    We all dance our lives. Then we fall, and it's over. We'll meet the ones we loved and lost. We'll catch up with them. This song is about a daughter thinking about her mother and the ones she loved. Our destiny is to find unity, in a momento or two... It's beautyful, isn't it?

    Snowflake is a metaphor for our individual existence. It is about being fully present and fulfilling our purpose in the brief time that we have on earth.

    Wow. Its a song about a mother trying to find her son who just happens to be a snowflake. The rest of you obviously have far too much time on your hands.
