lyrics

This ledge is plenty big enough
We’ll be fine for a while
Until they grow
But the hunting is harder without him
How could he know

He soared through the open sky
Now he is gone
And we don’t know why

These canyon walls are deceptive
Dark and smooth underfoot
The surface sheer

And the echoes confound me
Any way you turn it’s hard to hear
I will adapt by and by
But I long for the open sky

Blue and vast
Scent of summers past
Undulating fields and sentry stones
Take me there
Updraft of warmer air
Home to rest my hollow bones

For now this city suffices
I can manage here alone
And we have almost made it
Through this toughest of times
On our own

As soon as the weather turns dry
We’ll ascend to the open sky
Grow up, my babies, and fly
Let me show you the wide open sky
