Where Have The Sparrows Gone?

Album: A Dark Murmuration of Words (2020)
  • Blow the dust off
    Your grandma's gas mask
    Hide in the place we played
    Where the woods were once

    They closed the bridge again
    They're not letting us out
    Though we told them years ago
    They didn't listen to us shout

    Where have the sparrows gone?
    Where have the sparrows gone?

    We're headed north
    Which way were you going to go?
    I heard there's a truck that leaves
    From the Old Kent Road

    Wild fire, wild weather
    The prophecies came true
    We read about them years ago
    No one to blame but me and you

    Where have the sparrows gone?
    Where have the sparrows gone?
    Where have the sparrows gone?
    Where have the sparrows gone?
    Where have the sparrows gone?

    Took too much from the ocean
    Took too much from the earth
    We took more than we needed to
    More than we could return

    Ashes in my pocket
    I'll scatter them when we stop
    He loved to be by water
    Down where the waves bow and buck

    Where have the sparrows gone?
    Where have the sparrows gone?
    Where have the sparrows gone?
    Where have the sparrows gone?
    Where have the sparrows gone?

    Blow the dust off
    Your grandma's gas mask
    Hide in the place we played
    Where the woods were once

    They closed the bridge again
    They're not letting us out
    Though we told them years ago
    They didn't listen to us shout

    Where have the sparrows gone?
    Where have the sparrows gone?
    Where have the sparrows gone?
    Where have the sparrows gone?
    Where have the sparrows gone?
    They're where the woods were once
    Where the woods were once
    Where the woods were once
    They're where the woods were once
    Where the woods were once
    Where the woods were once Writer/s: EMILY BARKER
