Neko Case

Maybe sparrow you should wait
The hawks alight ‘til morning
You'll never pass beyond the gate
If you don’t hear my warning
 
Notes are hung so effortless
With the rise and fall  
of sparrow’s breast 
It’s a drowning diving

Oh my sparrow it’s too late
Your body limp beneath my feet
Your dusty eyes as cold as clay
You didn’t hear my warning


Maybe sparrow it’s too late
The moonlight glanced off metal wings
In a thunderstorm above the clouds
The engine hums a sparrow’s phrase
Those who cannot hear the words.
