Two Birds

Lyrics

two birds on the rooftop:
one is black the other`s brown.
one shot - one bird startles
while the other`s falling down.

two minds stitched together
with their bodies far apart
one dream, one illusion
doomed to fail right from the start

distance lies not in space but in time
letting it grow is not a crime
but I must have been so blind not to
notice I had been long, long left behind

tonight it is showing
that to think we could survive
was one sad, naive conclusion
of wishing for a better life

but what are the consequences?
what about all our plans?
was it all false pretences?
couldn`t you tell me in advance?
what are the odds that we can make it alright someday?
with a little more time on our hands, little less in our way...

distance lies not in fate but in will
it can save lives, it can kill
thought it could be kept at bay
but it always sneaks into uncertain hearts someway

distance lies not in space but in time
letting it grow is not a crime
but I must have been so blind not to
notice I had been long, long left behind

two birds on a dead tree:
one is black, the other grey
one glance - one bird watches
as the other flies away
