Islands - Swans (life after death)

Swans swans swans
Sing songs
All night long
Who knew how warm the islands were?
While the frogs look on
It's what the birds prefer
And it's still warm after the sun has gone

I woke up thirsty the day I died
And the tide was swirling
My mouth is so dry
And all I see is sea
Two shining seas

Swans swans swans
Sing songs
All night long
And who knew how warm the islands would be?
And who knew just how much the sky covers me?
It makes you forget what it means to be free

I climbed into the blowhole
In the ribs I found you

With a wick we lit a flame
Now look at the smoke that it blew
The mouth is so wide
Yet all I see is sea and azure sky
A little wave in ebb tide


Rivers leak
Salt seeps in
Heals wounds winds
Pry apart
(x3)

Swans swans swans
Sung songs
'Til the morning dawned on us
And the sun smudged peach moon
Still hung loose

Bones bones bones
Grown homes
With the sparrows in the trees
We leave them for
They love the marrow

I'm thankful for my life.
