Beautiful Birds



Young As The Morning Old As The Sea (2016)

Beautiful Birds testo

Do you remember when we were two beautiful birds?
We would light up the sky when we’d fly
You were orange and red like the sun when it sets
I was green as an apple’s eye

You said you loved all the songs that I’d sing
Like nothing that you’d ever heard
And I said I loved you with all of my heart when
We were two beautiful birds
Do you remember when we were two beautiful birds
We would sing when the morning would come
You were silver and blue like the moon when it’s new
I was gold as a summer sun

But one day you asked for a different song
One that I just couldn’t sing
I got the melody sharp and the words all wrong
Those were the last days of spring

To build a nest we pecked feathers from our chests
Like a book tearing out every page
We weren’t to know that these feathers would grow
Into a beautiful cage
