lyrics

Bridges & Wings

There’s a mist that lolls between these hills and settles in the bones.
A hunger for a deeper sun that kissed a place called home.
But we’re learning in this place of peace, with all that’s here and now.
To close our eyes and drift and sway to the beating of our own heart.

There’s a love that burns between these ribs and settles in the heart,
A longing for a child’s hand, or dancing in the dark.
Whispers from the water’s edge, the river meets the sea,
The salt-marsh and it’s sleeping birds, the moon that follows me…

All the sounds of the earth and her music.
Tongue-tied and wide-eyed.
Oh to do your thing.
All the sounds of the earth and her music.
Tongue-tied and wide-eyed
Born on bridges and wings…

In the paper that’s left on the seat are the figures of the day,
Someone’s calculations printed red upon the grey.
Pylons poking rudely at the edges of the sky
Smooth line of the Tamar, we turn in from riverside.

All the sounds of the earth and her music.
Tongue-tied and wide-eyed.
Oh to do your thing.
All the sounds of the earth and her music.
Tongue-tied and wide-eyed
Born on bridges and wings…

The boats that spin against the tide, pull tight upon their chains,
Ivy, bricks and stones and track suck at the passing train.
A tidal smudge, a triangle that warns of what might come,
Drumming on the underside, the brambles pluck and strum.

Please carry my words
On bridges and wings…
On bridges and wings…
