Owls (Are Watching)

  • Open windows above the sill, flowers bloom to make the air less chilled
    Condescending statements of people in their cars
    Waiting for the radio to save their lives, are you watching
    Tell me are you watching, are you listening at all?

    If it's better protected
    The sights unseen
    Dark skies surround you
    Whatever that means

    And there's a light on and no one's home
    Tell me did you leave the light on?
    There's a light on and no-one is home
    Tell me did you leave the light on?

    Owls in the night skies watching us pass by
    Like ships in the night, covered in silver light
    Owls in the night skies watching us pass by
    Like ships in the night, covered in silver light

    Are they waiting to take it away from me?
    Eyes burn like matches and gasoline

    And there's a light on and no-one's home
    Tell me did you leave the light on?
    There's a light on and no-one is home
    Tell me did you leave the light on?

    Owls in the night skies watching us pass by
    Like ships in the night, covered in silver light
    Owls in the night skies watching us pass by
    Like ships in the night, covered in silver light

    Owls in the night skies watching us pass by
    Like ships in the night, covered in silver light
    Waiting for the radio to save our lives, are you watching
    Tell me are you watching, are you listening at all? Writer/s: GAVIN BURROUGH, KRIS COOMBS-ROBERTS, MATTHEW DAVIES-KREYE, RICHARD BOUCHER, RYAN RICHARDS
