lyrics

Old Crow​

She had a hard hard life of her own choosing
But the decisions were never that easy
Dark clouds crowd her horizon
Like a flock of trouble that’s escaped

​She can rise there
​Above the storm
​She can scare it all away

​I’m just an old crow
​I don’t scare so much these days
​You can’t scare me away

The best part of sorrow is what she’s forgotten
So she looks the other way
Birds circle the sky above her
Birds talk amongst themselves

​She can lie there
​With the truth
​Knowing she could fly away

​I’m just an old crow
​I can barely fly these days
​I can barely fly away

​​Clenches her fists
​​Shouts to the heavens
​​All I wanna do is live

​​Reckless endearment is
​​All I’ve got left
​​All I’ve got left to give

She waits there
For the sun to rise
Is it enough to light her way

I’m just an old crow
And it gets darker every day
Darker every day
Until the sun and this old crow
Both look the same
