about

This song is a love song to being in the moment. We would all just be happier if we could spend more time being in the moment. But there's always that little voice lurking, making us (me) anxious about what will happen next, when will I die etc...A bird can only hope to not be alone when that time comes. And--I never did see a bird fall down from the sky. It is such a mystery.

lyrics

When I get high up enough that the sky almost falls down on me
and all the birds fly around, checkin’ out the ground
there’s nowhere I’d rather be

I could go to Sweden or Mexico but isn’t it the same everywhere?
and who would pick flowers for my lover
if I wasn’t here?

But there’s just one thing that I’ve been wondering
as I’m flying up above: where do we all go to rest when our days are done?

Where do the birds go to die?
I once saw one under a tree
I never saw one fall down from the sky
When I go I hope you’ll be there with me

Oh when I get down low enough that the earth is all I see
and I can feel the warmth surrounding me
There’s nowhere I’d rather be

I could go to Paris or Istanbul, but isn’t it the same over there?
And who would dance with my lover in the rain
if I wasn’t here?

But there’s just one thing that I’ve been wondering
as I’m flying up above: where do we all go to rest when our days are done?

Where do the birds go to die?
I once saw one under a tree
I never saw one fall down from the sky
When I go I hope you’ll be there with me
