The Owl

lyrics

Moon after moon
I perch here and stare
Stare at your wings
The hooing that you sing
And as you soar by
Night after night
The fog floats through by your wings
As you sail through the night

And I'de hide in the leaves
But now I stand out
Away from the leaves
Hoping that you see
And as you soar by
I open up my wings
I close my eyes and sing
Sing to you in the light

When the nighttime goes and the morning comes
And your asleep somewhere and I'm still up
And when the morning goes and the daytime comes
I will have gathered prey for you when the nighttime comes
But the prey is running few I still leave them all for you
But my bellies growing hungry

And you fly around
head peering down
I want your eyes
You look away
I need them so
Just for a glance
You look away
Stern shadowed brow
And as you go
I hear you sing
For someone else
For someone else
For someone else

I hear you sing
For someone else
For someone else
I hear you sing
For someone else
For someone else
