lyrics

Feathers in a bag

She wants to make some wings
(perhaps to fly away)
And she’s got a million dreams
(and feathers in a bag)
And Julie waits by the iron gate
in her wooden clogs with a fist full of fate
and feathers in a bag.

Lighter than a breath they flew by you
She waits for a tornado you never knew
She’s been waiting for a storm.

And you’ve seen her break some things
(rules, when there’s red in her eyes)
and she’s got a thousand screams,
like feathers, in a bag.

..

and Julie waits by the iron gate,
like bait on a hook as the sky starts to shake
with her feathers in a bag.

Lighter than a breath they flew by you
She waits for a tornado you never knew
She’s been waiting for a storm.

She’s been collecting feathers in a bag all her life, waiting for a storm.
She releases them into the tornado and …

It’s dark and it’s late by the bent iron gate,
There once was a girl here with a fist full of fate
And feathers, in a bag.
