about

I recently went through 12 journals/lyric books of mine from the past 8 years and found various lyrics that are still relevant to me, but now in an entirely different way.
This was roughly recorded and composed in a span of four and half hours today (6/28/11), all instruments were done in one take, so judge it according to that, ha! Layered keyboards, lots of reverby echo-ness. Sometimes I like to pretend i'm in my own gospel choir, except unfortunately I'm singing into my computer on the floor of my room. Makes me happy, I get kick outta myself :)

lyrics

I don't have to call you sweetie, darling or baby
I remember how to pronounce your (birth) name

And I've seen your war paint smeared
Watched your vulnerability appear

My grin will leap into your eyes
You'll hesitate, then mesmerize me

Take a look at where your armor lies
Not against your chest, but at your side

Nous avons pas peur (We are not afraid)
Nous sommes des oiseaux (We are birds)

Like the feathers in my hair- femme d'oiseau (a bird woman)
Like the wings you will wear- l'homme d'oiseau (a bird man)

Nous avons pas peur (We are not afraid)
Nous avons pas peur
Like the wings that you will wear, we will (be)ware
Nous sommes des oiseaux (we are birds)
