​Bright Future

This song is by Bowerbirds and appears on the album Upper Air (2009).

Bright future, bright pink
Bright light in my eyes, oh, this desert's a tease
Giant heart, down in this dust
Fell to the earth at a fascinating speed

Well, further up in the ponderosa
The nervous coyotes caterwauling, their choruses foreboding
And couldn't you've stayed on the ground?
Couldn't you have stayed on your feet?

But your mind was wound so tightly
Always bold and wise and unsettling
I live in your tall trees, amongst your fearless leaves
Saw the bright colors, bright future

The night is patient, the night's a glass dome
The night is still and cold but this desert can turn
Your restless mind was born in a flash
And you lived in these clouds with lightning in your feet

And yes, your mind was wound so tightly
Always bold and wise and unsettling
I live in your tall trees, amongst your fearless leaves
Saw the bright colors, bright future
