I got this ego
That got knocked down
I'm walking real slow
Staring at the ground
A million loners wake up every day
My life's not over
Just twisted out of place

I stop in my tracks to watch the clouds get tossed around
Suddenly that's all I can think about

I've got the big sky to hold me
I've got my whole life unfolding
There's nobody to talk to
So don't tell me that I need you
I'm on the other side
Of being lonely
I've got the whole sky to hold me

I take the train home almost every night
And I talk to strangers just to feel alive
So I asked this lady
When I was feeling bold, oh
"Am I going crazy or is this just getting old?"

Half smile and she told me
She misses being young
When every moment just drips with passion
She said "Girl, let yourself cry
You and your fears of feeling lost
Don't calculate the cost"

I've got the big sky to hold me
I've got my whole life unfolding
There's nobody to talk to
So don't tell me that I need you
I'm on the other side
Of being lonely
I've got the whole sky to hold me

Sometimes my skin is stretched so far
You can see right through into my beating heart
It's just a growing thing
Just when I think I'm gonna shrivel up
I can feel the creeping of a deeper love running through my veins
Oh, and that'll never change

I've got the whole sky to hold me
Temporarily lonely
I needed the solitude, oh
Just to find out I don't need you

I've got the big sky to hold me
I've got my whole life unfolding
There's nobody to talk to
So I'm starting up strong and new
I'm on the other side
Of being lonely
I've got the whole sky to hold me

    to me, this song is about a girl who had really close friends. Then, that closenss turned to ignorance of the girl which made the girl feel like it was the end of the world. Then, looking at how the clouds getting pushed out by other clouds, she realized that she'll meet new people, and that she didn't need those "friends" to survive.
