Tapestry Lyrics

My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hue
An everlasting vision of the ever changing view
A wondrous woven magic in bits of blue and gold
A tapestry to feel and see, impossible to hold

Once amid the soft silver sadness in the sky
There...

    It's probably an exercise in futility but here goes...being that all Of The songs Of "Tapestry" fit together, this must also. The álbum is about The experiences Of her Life that have created The tapestry Of blue (sad, negative) and gold (Rich, rewarding). Tapestry The song is somewhat frightening. It relates some difficult, possible horrifying experience that brings The writer to a point Of redemption in Natural Woman, The last song on The álbum which follows Tapestry. What that experience is only King knows. The song contains many religous references--Joseph's coat Of many colors, Jesús tattered clothes and leathered skin after scourging, The Apple from The Tree Of Good and Evil--King is Jewish and undoubtedly had extensive instruction in The Old Testament. Who The drifter is could be King herself. The Gray and ghostly figure is a spirit that rescues her at The end. Could be God or whatever she percieves God to be, but talking her back is bringing her back to her natural self--what she was meant to be--her destiny. Paving The way for The last song. Interestingly, The original order Of songs put Tapestry last, but King wisely decided to alter that. After all, it is an álbum Of personal discovery and should end on a positive note.
