lyrics

When young I was the host of a keen urge
To like a swallow fly so far from here
But now there’s no need all earth to traverse
I found the world’s wonder in you my dear

Human endeavours, colossal and great
Falls of nature, a northern show of light
I soar unburdened from such heavy weight
As long as my songbird is within sight

But no end will there be to our roaming
For journeys still shall we together make
Through time and space ‘til we reach the gloaming
Spread evenly in between sleep and wake

I long for you to feel my every word
I long for you to stay my perching bird
