nestling

lyrics

Baby birds must learn to fly
It's not up to us to question why
It will swallow you whole and leave you desperate
If you can't understand, you can't digest it
It's the calling of a bird to learn to fly
To take that first stride

Nestling into my arms
You were far gone, you were far gone
Nestling no longer
When you leap into my yard, into my yard

There are signs that tell of dying
Plenty of signs
I'll disclose your forewarning
If you'll share the dream you dreamt last night
It's the calling of a bird to learn to fly
To take that first stride

Nestling into my arms
You were far gone, you were far gone
Nestling no longer
When you leap into my yard, into my yard

I'll place a nest of leaves and twigs
To sit upon your curly crown
So all the little birds that flit
To and fro, to and fro
Will know where to find fertile ground
But please my dear, if love you do
Brush away those chirping flocks
And find that there is room for two
Within your present weave of locks

Nestling into my arms
You were far gone, you were far gone
Nestling no longer
When you leap into my yard, into my yard
