lyrics

Once a day, you get upstairs
you take a seat and start saying your prayers
but you keep an ear to the sparrows
flowing like swirls in the air
At night, they say in storybooks,
you beak and wings, fly over the roofs
In dreams of beasts becoming food
you give 'em back to their woods
Once a day you pack your bags,
you gather all the tears you shed
you move across seasons and seas
will you come back to me
You rig the clocks, you trick the time
you ring the chimes from dawn to midnight
Then dusk to dusk, town to town
you paint new stars in the sky
Like a soldier, knife and boots
you camouflage yourself in the woods
you hunt down hunters, take their souls
under the light of the moon
Once a day you pack your bags,
you gather all the tears we shed
you change the path of riverbeds
you mix the names of our lands
you spread your wings, flying across
seasons and seas, in pain and grief,
you shuffle the rules and strong beliefs,
Play with the colours of our flags,
Play with the flavours of our lands
Raising and killing kings and queens
Making us guilty for our sins
Punishing us with quakes and floods
Driving the time, mixing our bloods
Blessing the animals we fed
gathering all the tears we shed
you princess of trees and mountain streams
you keep moving across seasons and seas
will you come back to me
