The Bird Painter

Maggie Pope

Lyrics

Tomorrow we're shaking

Wake up see the sun come making

A new year and colors a new year

I think we'll walk together

For papers bound with leather from our skin

Wake up from every page we're hanging

Or are we a sleeper

Or are we moving like the bird painter

I once heard a man say

I wonder if in the universe ballet

The music that's playing is echoes of

God's voice traveling

And when they said nothing

Saw nothing beauty fell into the room

The painter the captain he woke up

Put on his clothes and moved

Tomorrow we're shaking

Wake up see the sun come making

A new year and colors a new year

I think we'll walk together

A new year engraved on papers

I think we'll walk together

A new year wake up wake up

I think we'll walk together

For every mood
