Swans (Life After Death) Lyrics

Swans (Life After Death) by Islands  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


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
Who knew how warm
The islands would be

And who knew just how much
The sky'd cover 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 and ebb tide

Rivers leak, salt seeps in
Heals wounds, winds pry apart
Rivers leak, salt seeps in
Heals wounds, winds pry apart

Rivers leak, salt seeps in
Heals wounds, winds pry apart

Swans, swans, swans sung songs
Till 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
I'm thankful for my life
