Birds of Prey

Babe, this world is under change.
These birds return to remain.
The grass unweaves the cold snow blanket,
and the waters start to run.
I go down, to watch the frozen river,
waking in the sun.

But where have you gone, my love?
It’s been so long, my love.
Just wanna give you my love.
You’re across the sea.
Is Spring still on your trees?
Are you still my love?

Babe, this world is under change.
There’s blood on the lion’s mane.
Divorce unweaves my friends to wishes,
and Gabriel died today.
I go down, to watch the rising river,
forewarning these fates.

But where have you gone, my love?
It’s been so long, my love.
Just wanna give you my love.
Your sails took wind,
are they still blowin’?
Are you still my love?
Oh, my Jacquilyn.

Where have you gone, my love?
It’s been so long, my love.
Just wanna give you my love.
Just wanna give you my love.
These are darker days,
your still miles away,
are you still my love?

Babe, are you tired of change?
These birds return to remain.
These birds, oh these birds,
these birds, they are the birds of prey.
