I wrote this song about 5 years ago and really like the autumn/winter kind of feeling it evokes. I don’t know if this is something that I only see in my own mind – you be the judge. The lyrics represent a more abstract style of my writing. Sometimes I like to write very direct and sometimes I like to write in a more open ended symbolic manner that allows the listener and myself to interpret their own meaning. This is a love song of sorts.  I will leave the story-line up to you.

Hope you enjoy,

Birds Singing (hallelujah was beneath their wings)Lyrics

If words are not supposed to hurt

And actions are all that’s real

Then why if I say I love you

Would it bring you a flood of tears

If strength is measured in miles

And kindness just a childish desire

Then why is the Ransom I owe

Held by a moon that’s on fire

Chorus: 

I heard the birds singing – they were calling your name while you slept

I saw the birds fly overhead – hallelujah was beneath their wings

The years have made me hard

But wiser in my demise

And while the sun circles the heavens

My heals are dug in the earth

My hands are callused with doubt

My confidence shrouded in fear

Perfect is only a word

But your words they spilled to me like wine

Chorus: 

I heard the birds singing – they were calling your name while you slept

I saw the birds fly overhead – hallelujah was beneath their wings
