I couldn't utter my love when it counted
Ah, but I'm singing like a bird, 'bout it now
I couldn't whisper when you needed it shouted
Ah, but I'm singing like a bird, 'bout it now

The bite on above
But never would fall in
Like a crane at the final breath that is drawn
Remember me, love when everyone
Is a shrike to your sharp and glorious thorn

And I had no idea on what ground I was found in
All that goodness is gone with you now
There when I met you my virtues uncounted
All of my goodness is gone with you now

Driving alone, following your form
Hung like the pearl of some prey you had worn
Remember me love, when everyone
Is the shrike to your sharp and glorious thorn

I fled to the city with so much discounted
Ah, but I'm flying like a bird to you now
Back to the hedgerows where bodies are mounted
Ah, but I'm flying like a bird to you now

I was highest by your warmth
And I was transformed
But your gounded and giving
And darkening scorn
Remember me, love when I'm reborn
As the shrike to your sharp and glorious thorn
