Sleep. Fly. Wake.

by Iain Morrison

Just a blackbird I know The dusk fails silence grows You tell me how to keep a watch for my guardian and my foes The difference sometimes we should not know This my love song This my love song This my love song For you You're just a blackbird I know I scratched your image on my skin 6 days later she did it too No longer scared, no longer scared, no longer scared of him She's the one, she's been waiting
You burden me no more, you burden me You burden me no more, come and see come and see Like floats washed up on shore Like ships in the sky The dark is hidden by light We can see, we can see All the words you have hidden All the colours like grey Before our death is so sudden Bring the sea You hold me close to you Like a leper on the slide From the stars I look up to you You say all’s fine just fine I gather floats for when it’s time One by one ten is all we need That will take us to the other side Bring the sea bring the sea To all those who knew love To all those we share
