lyrics

had my heart stolen
by a burning kingdom of the sun
gave my sight to these
snow-capped peaks
that so easily won
my feet from this common path
I'd walked for my whole life
from since I was told
'tomorrow you're old
borrow for a home
lie for a wife'

but fleeting
like a cold bird's wings beating
just once
so you're not sure if you've even seen it
or if you're dreaming
every night
waiting for the startling power of flight

born under shadows
of half-mast standards
it's part disadvantage
and part well-prepared
for the caught in between
the daily routine
of burnt with cold iron
or the 'what might have been'
the arc of that bell
tolling in hell
between what we were sold
and what we will sell

but it's fleeting
like a cold bird's wings beating
just once
so you're not sure if you've even seen it
or if you're dreaming
every night
waiting for the startling power of flight
