  • The birds are the keepers of our secret as they saw us where we lay
    In the deepest grass of springtime in a reckless guilty haze
    And they wove a sweet indifference and it settled on our skin
    Till the eyes that I remembered for the last time drew me in

    The birds
    Though I wore you glacial patience to a smudge of bitter dust
    On the last day you embraced me with a glistening sapling trust
    Did they sing a million blessings as they watched us slowly part
    Do they keep those final kisses in their tiny racing hearts

    What are we gonna do with you
    Same tale every time
    What are we gonna do with you
    Come on inside
    Looking back is for the birds Writer/s: CRAIG LEE POTTER, GUY EDWARD JOHN GARVEY, MARK POTTER, PETER JAMES TURNER, RICHARD BARRY JUPP
