Lyrics
When the evening like a sparrow
Folds down under its small wings
All the light bones and the feathers of the day

Only then in that moment
Stop the rushing and just hold me
Lay your hands where it hurts
And we'll leave it that way

I have often dreamt of angels
But I very rarely see them
But I know that they've been here
Cause something smells like sky
In the rustle of their presence
Its a lot like your breathing
But I can't say why

And I have searched all the wise and the unwise places
I have known the price of passion
What solitude buys

It was you I was looking for in all those faces
Always you I was hoping for
When I closed my eyes

So while well gather all the feathers
All the risings and the fallings
In the quiet of the day

When you speak there's a flutter
Of some winged thing stirring
Lay your head on my heart
And we'll leave it that way
