lyrics

Then, I sat with the swans
As they laid on the land
And, were resting their wings
So I fed them by hand.
Gently, I ran my hand
Along the length of their endless white necks
And they let me
They accept me

Take me in
Make me belong

And I tried to speak their language
And I hoped they'd understand

See you
Then
I waited the land
They left me to defend
In their absence I grew confident
for I knew they'd return, I'm sure, my friends
The next time we will
Leave together
And they'll let me
Accept me

I gathered these feathers they left me
Scattered around on the ground
These feathers will make me whole
Make me belong

And I tried to speak their language
And I hoped they'd understand
