Birds of the High Arctic

Album: Mutineers (2014)
  • Baby say it isn't true
    You're never there
    It wasn't you
    It's more than I can do
    To try and keep it shiny new
    The gap just opens up
    Between the words we like to use
    And the thing that's seen
    Seen through your eyes now darling
    In blue distances calling
    Like the birds of the high Arctic
    And you don't have to make the move
    No there ain't nothing left to prove
    Accept the plain unvarnished truth
    It's a part of you, you can't remove
    Like a love that's been
    There ain't no answers darling
    Just blue distances calling
    Like the birds of the high Arctic

    They're calling
    Like the birds of the high Arctic
    This darling
    For the light in your eyes sparked it
    Two sheets to the wind

    Yeah yeah, yeah yeah
    Yeah yeah, yeah yeah

    Like the birds of the high Arctic
    Like the birds of the high Arctic
    Like the birds of the high Arctic
    Like the birds of the high Arctic

    Baby say that it isn't true, na na
    Never there
    You were never there
    Baby say that it isn't true, na na
    You were never there
    You were never there

    Baby say that it isn't true, na na
    You were never there
    You were never there
    Say that it isn't true, na na
    You were never there

    Like the birds of the high Arctic
    Like the birds of the high Arctic
    Like the birds of the high Arctic Writer/s: ANDREW BARLOW, DAVID GRAY
