lyrics

I want to be a beautiful finch with a cosy nest
I want to be a beautiful finch with a sweet morning song

I want to be a loving mother with kind old eyes
I want to be a loving mother with soft warm hands

I want to be a sneaky fox with a hidey hole
I want to be a sneaky fox and burrow when the hunters come

My dreams sneak up on me when I awake
Visions of surreal landscapes and honest conversations

I want to be a wise old lady with a tale to tell
I want to be a wise old lady with a few smile lines

My dreams sneak up on me when I awake
Visions of surreal landscapes and honest conversations

Rope-burn on my hands, my eyes are open but they fool me
A knot I can’t untie, my pillow promises respite

I want to be a beautiful finch with a cosy nest,
I want to be a beautiful finch with a sweet morning song.
