The little brown nightingale would fly around, among the flowers that grew in her path, their nectar on her tongue she'd let a feather fall into the brook below and it would float upstream some treasure for a child the little sweet nightingale she travelled on through the dark she'd promised she'd be there before the sun showed face the other birds settled down into their nests for the night the wind it howled up a gale but she thought only of him and now, she's learnt, learnt how to give for how can she love and stay, stay bright and free? The stony graves caught her eye she waited cold on the tomb of a friend who knew as well as she her love would never arrive, not he he heart beat fast with the drops of glistening rain on the leaves yeah it beat so fast all the while the blood poured out from her chest and now, she's learnt, learnt how to give for how can she love, and stay, stay bright and free?

Today I noticed something strange the only way to stay alive is to give your name away to give your name to a child the only way to stay awake the only way to measure time is to look out the window to stare, into space. It's no wonder we wont go down in history no-one will know famous last words always sounded better living in your mouth the only way to keep you safe is to draw every part of your grace walking along, before, before, you know I've seen and every line of written verse could not keep your sweet little bones from the earth unless I'd seen, unless I'd seen unless I'd learnt It's no wonder we wont go down in history no-one will know famous last words always sounded better living in your mouth! It's no wonder we wont go down in history no-one will know no-one ever built a castle no-one ever married well I'll ride, upon my horse, I'll ride away till you find me come chase me on your horse I want to know that you'll find me

Hold me, back from the ground I want to feel gravity fight what he beats when he strains on my back and what he beats when he summons my mind my only hope was to make double sure, secretly shut the gate behind myself my only hope was to make double sure secretly shut the gate behind myself but you! stayed afloat, yeah you always went on, at the front of the ship like a figurehead bringing good luck to your brothers, the men while I stayed at home and I cried with their wives my only hope was to make double sure secretly shut the gate behind myself my only hope was to make double sure secretly shut the gate behind myself and your only hope was to lie on the floor cos you're too afraid of what would happen if we fall your only hope was the lie on the floor cos you're too afraid of what will happen when we fall.
