lyrics

you’re in the trees
and in the falling leaves
singing sweet and high
teardrops fall
underneath it all
you are broken and you don’t know why

you are my nightingale
you’re too fragile to fly
you are so timid and frail
frightened by the sky
frightened by the sky

you sing hallelujah
what’s it doing to you
singing sweet so long
they brutalize you
and then I find you
sleeping in the shadow of the dawn

you are my nightingale
you’re too fragile to fly
you are so timid and frail
frightened by the sky
frightened by …

I was broken down when you found me here
On the cold hard ground, under that diamond field
I was broken down, you rescued me
You mended my wings, and you made me believe

you are my nightingale
you’re too fragile to fly
you are so timid and frail
frightened by the sky
frightened by the sky
frightened by the sky
Whoa whoa oh oh oh…

[You are my nightingale…
Too fragile to fly…
You are my nightingale…
You are so timid, so timid…
Fly… Sky…]
