Bird of Paradise

lyrics

Very little air today
The birds are crying in the rain
Each day at dawn they wailing scorn
The birthing of the world

Very little we must say
I know when you are swollen gray
You know when I am falling
Into puddles like a girl

But when my eyes finally fade to white
You will be my sight
Dress me in black safe as the night
My bird of paradise

Very little we must say
But it’s good if we say it anyway
Help you loose your storms it helps me
Find all my scattered pearls

Very little air today
The birds breathe shallow in the rain
Each day at dusk they waling mourn
The passing of the world

But when your eyes finally fade to white
I will be your sight
Dress you in black safe as the night
My bird of paradise
