​Falcon

This song is by Martha Tilston.

Why do the birds of prey never stray far from the motorway
Hover above us in the space between the hard shoulder and the sky I'm enraptured, I'm captured, the car zooms by
Maybe I will never feel this free again maybe I'll count
These days of inbetween are something I could do without
Down, down and I swoop down, remind me how freedom feels

'Cause right now I am a falcon
I'm circling up there with them
And I need to wing, I need to sing
All the choices I could make from the backseat of the car

We get a plane to Aberdeen and I feel nervous
Then calm descends and I think whatever I learned from this
Living is dying and dying is a doorway anyway
And I cross my shoulders as I look down on the cities
They look like motherboards lit up so pretty
Down down down when I swoop down
Remind me how perspective feels

'Cause right now I am a falcon
And I'm circling up there with them
And I need some wings, I need to sing
I fear I hunger forever if I don't swoop now

And I fear I'll hunger forever
And I fear I'll hunger forever
Yeah I know I'll hunger forever
If I bottle it now
I get so scared I get so scared I get so utterly bewared
My ego takes flight and I wonder how I fared
So scared, so scared, so utterly bewared
Humility lands in a wonder
Why I cared at all
I just should have shared it all

Why do the birds of pray never stray far from the motorway
Hover above us in the space between our shoulder and the sky I'm enraptured, I'm captured, as the car glides by
Maybe I will never feel this free again maybe I'll count
These days of inbetween are something I could do without
Down, down and I swoop down, remind me how freedom feels

'Cause right now I am a falcon
And I'm circling up there with them
And I need to wing, I need to sing
All the choices I could make from the backseat of the car

Oh the conversations I have in my head
All the things I only wish that I had said
All the dreams I've catched and all the plans I've hatched
Mmmmm - in the backseat of the car


I'm always the passenger x5
