Feathers & Bones

This song is by The Clarks and appears on the album Feathers & Bones (2014).

She sang like a bird, high on a wire
At every chance, soulful as she could
And the words she chose where driven with such passion
But sadly, I never understood

She sang of God, but cursed like a sailor
Had manners of a queen, but grew up poor
With her broken mind she'd stare with no reaction
She didn't know her name, or mine, or yours

Hey, hey, hey
Flying around this place
Those days are lost in space
Time goes, you know I know
That all that's left are feathers and bones

Many years can bring you all the wisdom
Many years of memories all compiled
Was cruel to have to watch her heart grow older
While the rest of her turned back into a child

Hey, hey, hey
Flying around this place
Those days are lost in space
Time goes, you know I know
'Cause all that's left are feathers and bones

Hey, hey, hey
Scared and lost inside
Like a black hole in your mind
Sing low, I'm letting you go
And all that's left are feathers and bones

She sang like a bird, down to the wire
My love, I hope she understood

Hey, hey, hey
Flying around this place
Those days are lost in space
Time goes, you know I know
'Cause all that's left are feathers and bones

Hey, hey, hey
Scared and lost inside
Like a black hole in your mind
Sing low, sing low
'Cause all that's left are feathers and bones
All that's left are feathers and bones
All that's left are feathers and bones
