lyrics

I watched a lone bird flying home at dusk

Something ‘bout watching those power lines sway
in the cool summer breeze at the end of the day
Seventeen sparrows watching one fly away
heaven’s calling hard on my heart

Life is like the slow steady burn of a candle wick
cold wind kisses us goodnight

I watched a lone bird flying home at dusk

Something ‘bout staring at the cold black sky
it sings a silent music that shines a sacred light
Whispers of a God that won’t ever be quiet
one night I saw the northern lights

Who is this God that makes light shows in the sky?
I’ve never seen Your face but you blow me away

I watched a lone bird flying home at dusk

Something ‘bout sleeping all these miles from home
waking up at three to that train whistle blowing
Cold clean air breathing into my nose
this world ain’t my home

What is life if it’s not full of love?
What is love if we don’t freely give?

I watched a lone bird flying home at dusk
