Lyrics
Bird of Paradise

Cold mountain hung in silver shroud
Rise above suspicious snow filled clouds
Heavens falling down in bitter stings
Children playing displaying angels wings

While on that foreign field left for dead
Jersey blue tunic scarlet red
Faceless hero dreams of golden shore
Of sickle moon a kiss and nothing more

Bridge
Spiralling high eternal love
Curious wings of sacrificial dove

Chorus

Let him see the eagle fly
Let him hear the eagle cry
Let him see his bird
Bird of Paradise
One more time before he dies

Red eyed ravens search for fallen brave
Black on white like notes upon the stave
Screaming anthems to fortify the true
Wipe the blood from the hands of the chosen few

On virgin canvas alone she waits at night
Perceiving portraits of her soldiers plight
Whispered prayers to Gods within the fire
Ashes to ashes this his funeral pyre

Bridge
Spiralling high eternal love
Curious wings of sacrificial dove

Chorus

Heavens falling down in bitter stings
Children playing displaying angels wings

Chorus

Fly Fly and fade

Nice simple backing allows your evocative voice to take centre stage, (although I might have used the synth/string line more sparingly, to give it more impact when it entered). Thoughtful lyrics. Your music is very engaging, Baz - I enjoyed this one a lot!

Imagine working at a steelworks in a northern town for more years than you care to remember, with words and lyrics always the main distraction from it all. Hastily written down on the back of job cards and scraps off paper, hidden away from your mate... [see more]
