Neko Case – Maybe Sparrow lyrics

Maybe sparrow you should wait
The hawks alight 'til morning
You'll never pass
Beyond the gate
If you don't hear my warning

Notes are hung so effortless
With the rise and fall of sparrow's breast
It's a drowning diving
Back to the chorus
La di da di da di dum
La di da di da di dum

Oh my sparrow
It's too late
Your body limp beneath my feet
Your dusty eyes
As cold as clay
You didn't hear my warning
You didn't hear my warning

Maybe sparrow
It's too late
The moonlight glanced off metal wings
In a thunderstorm above the clouds
The engine hums a sparrow's phrase
Those who cannot hear the words
Those who cannot hear the words
Those who will not hear the words
La di da di da di dum
La di da di da di dum
Maybe sparrow
Maybe sparrow
Maybe sparrow
