lyrics

When I was young, I had a sparrow for a heart, and a redwing's eyes
And I left my home made of sticks and stones from the falling skies

Run, run, all the colours of the rainbow spun out, red green blue
Be still my heart, don't start, don't start bleeding too

When I am old would you carry my bones to the blood red sea?
Don't let the earthworms and carrion crows get the best of me
Green, green and red and blue were the colours no more
Only beating wings, a sparrow sings
and it makes my heart sore/soar
