lyrics

a slow song that sings significantly
like treetops with arms outstretched up in the breeze
or a solitary bird with it's starburst soliloquy
singing to us about the things that she sees

the atoms in the air vibrate succinctly
to the words of a song that searches for ordinary things
like a secret hidden in the branches of my family tree
or a lonely plant sleeping by the edge of the sea
--
the sleep that passes by {uncertainly}
like a swarm of strings entwined {playing}
playing a sweet melody whose sincerity isn't fooling me
-
a slow song that sings significantly
like treetops with arms outstretched up in the breeze
or a solitary bird with it's starburst soliloquy
singing to us about the things that she sees
--
the sleep that passes by {uncertainly}
like a swarm of strings entwined {playing}
playing a sweet melody whose sincerity isn't fooling me
