lyrics

The crescent moon is smiling on the flock of fledgling birds
Nestled deep within a chorus built of long-forgotten words
The fear is leaving now, it’s only grace that here remains
To pave the pathways of the valleys with a mother’s healing rains.

And on the bright day when it comes your time to go
I hope your heart breaks into starlings that’ll carry you home
And murmur you on out to where the north wind softly blows
I hope your heart breaks into starlings when it’s time for you to go.

Don’t worry, I will plant the flowers though they may not grow the same,
Dig my hands deep in the black dirt where your shadow still remains
The seeds within the ground will hold the half-life of your hand
The howling north wind still will kiss a cross upon the weathered stand

And on the bright day when it comes your time to go
I hope your heart breaks into starlings that’ll carry you home
And murmur you on out to where the north wind softly blows
I hope your heart breaks into starlings when it’s time for you to go.

And on the bright day when it comes your time to go
I hope your heart breaks into starlings that’ll carry you home
And murmur you on out to where the north wind softly blows
I hope your heart breaks into starlings when it’s time for you to go.
