Birds Flying Away
by Streetlight Manifesto

I left my country when I was nineteen
1925
And drifted to a town on the Cuban coast
Met a woman who became my life

And oh when I saw her
The darkness fled from me
And flew like a blackbird into the sun
On the day she married me

Dear God...

But now the drumbirds come for me
Oh now the drumbirds come for me
Lord give me forgiveness
For all that I have done
Forgive me now of the weight I bear
Don't keep me on the run

Dear God
Dear God
I remember climbing up those shoulders
And coming up under you like a lion
And coming down like we were dying
Dear God

I left my country when I was nineteen
1925
And drifted to a town on the Cuban coast
Met a woman who became my life

And oh when I saw her
The darkness fled from me
And flew like a blackbird into the sun
On the day she married me

Dear God
Dear God
I remember climbing up those shoulders...
