Lost In The Cloud Sheet Music Access code accepted, I’m announcing my name She’s a disembodied voice, and I am the same I hear the thrumming and hissing of space My small talk dies in the crowd She speaks, I picture her face But I keep breaking up And the pieces get lost in the cloud Office clock on a kitchen wall A steady metronome I don’t want to go in at all Today I work from home There are no distractions when You go it alone Private conversations overheard on the phone I make a sandwich and eat by the sink Here I don’t have to be proud Just need a minute to think But the wires get crossed And I’m suddenly lost in the cloud Tried to Skype with the background clutter Printer, mug and comb Worker bee eating peanut butter Today I work from home I was a fool, what a fool, and I knew that I was Saying, Cool, it’s cool, it’s cool She can do what she does If I'm in on Monday she’ll Be nothing but nice Ask me how my weekend was She'll probably ask twice You have to walk such a delicate line Where hoping isn't allowed Those hopes, those pictures were mine File not found Everything lost in the cloud Back and forth but it’s all the same I know this palindrome All the letters will spell your name Today I work from home
