Swans
Swans
Swans sing songs 
All night long
Who knew how warm the islands were

While the frogs look on
It's what the birds prefer 
And it's still warm after the sun has gone 

I woke up thirsty the day I died 
And the tide was swirling 
My mouth is so dry
And all I see is sea to shining seas

Swans
Swans
Swans sing songs 
All night long
Who knew how warm the islands would be

And who knew just how much 
The sky covers me
It makes you forget what it means to be free 

I climbed into the blowhole
In the ribs I found you 
With a wick we lit a flame
Now look at the smoke that it blew 

The mouth is so wide 
Yet all I see is sea 
And azure sky
A little wave and ebb tide 

Rivers leak
Salt seeps in 
Heals wounds
Winds pry apart

Rivers leak
Salt seeps in 
Heals wounds
Winds pry apart

Rivers leak
Salt seeps in 
Heals wounds
Winds pry apart

Swans
Swans
Swans sung songs 
'Til the morning dawned on us
And the sun-smudged peach moon still hung loose 

Bones 
Bones 
Bones
Groan
The sparrows in the trees we leave them for
They love the marrow 

I'm thankful for my life 
I'm thankful for my life
