lyrics

Nightbirds swirl about the black
as I'm in grass laying on my back
the second meteor this week streaks to fields unknown
high beams shine a fever dream on the highway to our home /

Before, I tried my best and I tried in vain
but I never found my way, you wouldn't let me explain
why I was barefoot in the middle of that quiet night intersection
traversing your direction, the nightbirds' verse inflectioned /

Thunder rolls far and the grounded bird has flown
under the stars where you found yourself alone
but you know your iridescence has long since subsided
neath my wing you did hide, in my arms you once sighed /

But it was only a fantasy
a picturesque and childish dream /
Selfish girl, can't you see?
you made my vagrant soul careen /
Your rule has finally fallen
all that remains is the sound /
Of the nightbirds' gentle callin'
and the world waking up as the moon sinks down \
