lyrics

Birder girl
With a veil of rain
That was me on the estuary
When I was just thirteen

The skies alive
So much to see
As time ran rings
In a blur of wings
Around my book and me

I lived to see them flock and fly
Flock and fly in the Essex sky

With my boys’ own book of birds
The perfect gift for a girl
See the paintings come to life
Flip the pages, watch the skies
As the birds swoop down in number
In the boys’ own book of birds

So where’s that wide eyed girl
That learned to love the world
Cocooned in waterproofs
With redshanks calling
I never meant to stray
But so much gets in the way
And I grew up to be a stranger

To the boys’ own book of birds
The perfect gift for a girl
See the paintings come to life
Flip the pages, watch the skies
As the birds swoop down in number
In the boys’ own book of birds

Let me start again, let me start again
Find my way again, find my way again
Let me start again, let me start again
Find my way again

To the boys’ own book of birds
The perfect gift for a girl
And the paintings come to life
Watch the pages fill the skies
And let the birds swoop down in number
To wake the girl from slumber

I long to watch them flock and fly
Flock and fly in the Essex sky
I long to see them wheel and cry
Wheel and cry in the Essex sky
