Sister Starling by Aoife ODonovan


Sister starling’s on the move, she’s going down
Watch the iridescence fading from her crown
She looks up when she hits the ground
Broken wing, feathers all around
Pick the starling up and bring the bird inside
Fashion her a bed of needles and rawhide
She sleeps with unblinking eyes
I watch - another morning dies
Apples and oranges don’t make lemonade
But i press and i squeeze anyway
When life gives you gin, you make something
I'll do anything you say
I'll do anything you say
Try to find her in the elements at night
Took out my diving mask and underwater light
I can go deep looking for a fight
She stays out of mind, out of sight
Makeshift magazines are blowing in the wind
I remembered all my dreams way back when
I’d wake up, reach for a pen
Can’t catch her now couldn’t catch her then
Apples and oranges don’t make lemonade
But you press and you squeeze anyway
When life gives you gin, you make something
I will do anything you say
And if you told me to jump
I’d climb to the top of the CN Tower today
Watch me fly away
Took half my life to get here
It’ll take half to get back to the bed I was born in
It’s where I want to die (it's where I want to die)
Where do you want to die? (Where do you want to die?)
Made a lot of money
Only to lose it trying to fake it
Makes me want to cry (makes me want to cry)
What makes you want to cry? (What makes you want to cry?)
I will do anything you say
I'll do anything you say
Found a letter in an old festival tote
Smoothed the paper out to read your crumpled note
I’m sorry
That’s all she wrote
