lyrics

i never knew

i never knew the wind would blow you to my door
on wings I almost recognized from sometime long before
you were some kind of surprise, in some clever disguise
i wasn't sure
yeah you were something i dreamed about or wished i had in store

and I never knew what kind of bird you were
what tune beat in your heart
i never knew what kind of song you heard
until your singing started

no, gilded cage for wings so delicate and strong
no, not a language or word remains for such a broken song

it's gone so dark, lost like a child
a single spark, one note so right
come faded sun through pitch black night
a song so bright

just your voice in the dark you pulled the sky out from the stars
fall to light up the empty space we left between our hearts
