This song is by John Mark Nelson and appears on the album Sings the Moon (2014).

I sit and stare
As you circle like snow
On the lake alone.
Sound of your wind
Passing home for awhile
And the smile it brings, the smile it brings

Took to the sky
With thundering roar
And I hear your cry
Leaving this land
Somewhere warm let us stay
And I understand (understand)

And it seems like the winter has lasted so long
Still I know that the spring will bring us to thaw

Like the leaves you will change and fall
When the cold winds call
But it won't be long.
You'll fly home in the winters through
And the earth is new
May the day be soon.

Raising your young
On a branch you can trust
And I hold my doubt
Winter is through
And the flock has flown in
And I look for you, I look for you

Like the leaves you will change and fall
When the cold winds call
But it won't be long.
You'll fly home in the winters through
And the earth is new.
May the day be soon.

Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh.
