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, and
letting it grow is not a crime

but I must have been so blind not t
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, a little less
in our way...

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