Emiliana Torrini – Birds lyrics

Let's stay awake and listen to the dark
Before the birds, before they all wake up
It's the ending of a play and soon begins another
Hear the leaves applaud the wind

See the sun come rising and white wings start to fly
Like strings of pearls in the fiery sky
I don't want to close my eyes
Don't want to leave the stage now
As the leaves applaud our stay

Lend me your wings and teach me how to fly
Show me when it rains, the place you go to hide
And the curtains draw again and bow, another day ends
The leaves applaud the wind
