Beth Orton (born Elizabeth Caroline Orton, 14 December 1970) is a BRIT Award–winning English singer-songwriter, known for her 'folktronica' sound, which mixes elements of folk and electronica. She was initially recognised for her collaborations with William Orbit and the Chemical Brothers in the mid 1990s. However, these were not Orton's first recordings.

These memories are just pieces of sky
Pieces of something much bigger than I
To anyone else just endless blue
I see time framed, an image of you
These memories hold me like the moon
Holds the sea like the sky holds the sun
The sea holds my tears and carries me
When my heart is too heavy for one

when it's over, it's over
I best get busy living
Been a long time gone

a dress made of air and webs and you
The way dreams evaporate as they come true
To anyone else just endless blue
An invisible kite string connects me to you
I knew that it's selfish to think you'd come here
There's so many people that must need you near
There's so many people that need to know
That you're still with them even when you go
That you're still with them even when they don't know

when it's over, it's over
I best get busy living
You'll be a long time gone

and how do you know how much you'll be missed
Does it add up to some names on a list
So you know we're just pieces of sky
Pieces of sky that keep drifting by
