  • All his life
    Blown by wildfire
    Like a spark
    Cause and effect
    One loose word
    One kind act
    Whole armies give thanks

    Falling dove
    Born of ocean
    Found by man
    Lived on his own
    Lift a sail
    Tighten the knots
    Lift him up
    Barely breathing

    Falling dove
    Do you believe in us
    Like I believe in us
    Is the outcome ever
    Strange enough
    You keep defending me
    When I'm behaving badly
    Cause you love me
    Cause you love me too much

    May the best of fortune bless you
    Could any creature be unmoved
    The humble nature of redemption
    The simple act of finding a use
    Hoping and almost praying
    Believing for a moment it's true

    I make a rendezvous
    In Moscow station
    A midnight passenger
    The cafe is closed
    In St. Petersburg
    The door slides open
    And I'm a dead man
    'Til I see her walk through

    Falling dove
    Oh oh oh Writer/s: NEIL MULLANE FINN
