Track Name: Wise Owl
Wise Owl eyes open to me
Wise Owl eyes wide open to me
Leave your imprint on my bed
Rest my tired bones on your feathery head

Wise owl wise owl
At night you go hunting, hunting for prey
At night you go hunting, for your resting day
You sleep in my shadow, walk in my light
Scream at my window, dance in my fright

Wise owl, wise owl

Don’t you be a grief stone to me
Don’t you be a grief stone to me

I’m the daughter of grief, sister of pain
Wise owl on my back, my body untrained
You feast on my flesh, dower out my chest
Fly with my fears, I’m the daughter of death

Wise owl wise owl
Wise owl wise owl

Everyone has there journey with me
If they choose not to fight it
Take every turn as it comes, let it be
Even if you don't like it

Wise owl wise owl

There is only one way to fly with
There is only one way to fly with
There is only one way to fly with

Wise owl destiny
Surrender your struggle to me
Let me lead you

I’m the shadow in your light, darkness in your flame
You cannot hide from me your suffering or pain
I see through you

Wise owl is visiting me
Wise owl is visiting me

Far safer to sit in the gaze of an owl
Than to hide from your own destiny

Wise owl, Wise owl
Wise owl, Wise owl
Wise Owl

Track Name: Little Bird
Soft and grey and dusty
Gentle as a flower
Flirting with the tree lines
Beating back the hours
Oh hey little bird with the blue wings
Give me a ride
I'll tell you all my secrets
There is nothing I will hide

Fly me away my blue winged babe
Fly me far from here
Lets glide over the rooftops
And gently disappear
Oh hey little bird with the blue wings
If you can do this for me
I will always love you
And that will set me free
