Crumpled Heart Unfolding – LYRICS
From the upcoming album ANCESTOR SONG

In the alarm of the morning
Sun cutting through cloud and branch
A quiet bird only sings
when she can hear herself

Twisting her head up, ears perked
The wind is making announcements again
Back in the nest she burrows
Holding in her song of sorrow

The day doesn’t take it slow, wait or make time / around the land she flies
Radio and engine sounds crashing up / never spare a measure for her song
The day doesn’t take it slow, wait or make time / around the land she flies
Radio and engine sounds crashing up / never spare a measure for her song

Come home, hold still / Listen to your heart simmer
Come home, hold still / Listen to your heart simmer, simmer, simmer, simmer

River lines are boiling
Centre key note roaring
Magic sound emerging
Crumpled heart unfolding

Many rumbles converging
Many rumbles converging
An overflow is coming
An overflow is coming
