The birds they sang
The break of day
Start again I hear them say
It's so hard to just walk away

The birds they sang
All a choir
Start again a little higher
It's a spark in a sea of grey

The sky is blue
Dreamed of light til it's true
Then take it back the pause shall through
My arms turn wings
All those clumsy things
Send me up to the wonderful world
And then I'm up with the birds

Might have to go
Where they dont know my name
Float all over the world
Just to see you again
But I won't show or feel any pain
Even though all my armour
Might rust in the rain

A simple plot
But I know one day
Good things are coming our way (Repeat twice)

Oh yeah

    It's very simple really... It was about 2 loves that did part, did walk away but the love never died, so it's about finding the strength, without being afraid, without fearing the pain that could be caused, to go and see your true love who is along way away, where you are unknown by everyone apart from her, there will be tears but only good things will come of it.

    I think it's about writing about someone who has passed. It's so hard to just walk away... Meaning it's hard for life to move on. Might have to go where they don't know my name, float all over the world just to see her again... As in dieing to finally seeing the loved one. And i won't show any fear or pain, even though all my armor must rust in the rain... Meaning not to be afraid. The rust in the rain as in tears. I guess it's all perception depending on what one is going through.
