starlings lyrics – passenger

well we watched the starlings fly
around the burned down pier
and i spilled my coffee on my sleeve

she wiped it with a smile
and told me i was juvenile
and kissed me softly on my cheek

and her hair danced in the breeze
like a thousand swinging trees
in a forest lying next to stormy seas

well we watched the wintry sky
turn a shade of turquoise
i whispered softly, i feel lost

she turned with laughing eyes
and curled her lips towards the sky
and said, get your map out then, you kn*b

and we laughed like a pair of fools
like kids, they laugh at school
and we wandered home
before the day brought dusk
