"THE NIGHTINGALE"


The nightingale sings each morning Her sweet song weaved in midnight's thread Beneath her vale a kingdom's calling If I could leave this grassy bed But when I told you I was afraid to fall Really I was afraid to fly at all Deep in trial, bound and burning Her restless charm has broken through But between cheap denial and reckless yearning To run from harm was all I knew And when I told you I was afraid to fall Really I was afraid to fly at all We fly and we fall From the summer's golden rays to the murky ocean floor And sometimes there's some cause we're calling for But mostly it seems we're chasing dreams to the shore The Nightingale flies tonight And I know the spell that she's weaving It's not like I can't stand the fight I just can't stand the leaving So when I told you I was afraid to fall Really I was afraid to fly When I told you I was afraid to fall Really I was afraid to fly at all
