lyrics

ECSTASY SNOWBIRDS

If paradise was half as nice
As the heaven you took me to
I never needed any other vice
Once I found you
Solitude was our Cockaigne
Nirvana ran in crystal streams
Utopia here in the room
It was the dream life in our veins

We were living in a world apart
We lived like snow birds from the start
We were living in a world apart
Isolation our lonely art

Lonely is the drug that numbs the heart
I've been thinking about the ecstasy of aloneness
we shared now for days
And how the good thing never lasts
A spirit always gets in the way
A murmuration of starlings filled my imagination
My dreams of flight and heat of communication
Migrating birds gravitate away
Please believe me when I say I was intent to stay

We were living in a world apart
We lived like snow birds from the start
We were living in a world apart
Isolation our lonely art

No one ever numbed you like I numbed you
So detached in the house up on that hill
No one knew or cared we were there
We were hidden from society bother to none
Until I messed up and you wanted me gone
We had lived for so long in our own quiet way
The nest was now ruined
I was gone within the year

We were living in a world apart
We lived like snow birds from the start
We were living in a world apart
Isolation our lonely art
