lyrics

The day before the light won
I rose my voice to sing what love should be, had to be
The echo from the mountain bounced
down along the slopes over the river, right back to me
no, no, no more hearts can bleed.

And in the dawn the birds came
sound and strong they gathered on the fields, about to leave
And in my nest the branches bent aside to
make the yellow of the new day clear things for me
no, no, no more hearts can bleed

He walked into the green grass
the roar of thousand bird's leaving the ground,
was his sound
a fire in my belly spoke
and suddenly I was down, down on the ground,
under the tree
no, no, no more hearts can bleed

Climb down climb down on the ground now
He said with he's head leaning on the trunk
Climb down climb down from your crown now
She took her time holding air in her lungs

Climb down climb down on the ground now
the path of yours leads away from the tree
Climb down climb down from your crown now
there's countries and oceans for you to see

Climb down, climb down on the ground now
The longer you wait the darker it gets
Climb down climb down from your crown now
she contemplates, benefits and regrets

Climb down climb down on the ground now
This tree will grow older than you and me
