Rare Birds

from Welcome to Us 2 by Allison Crowe



Rare Birds

Composed by Allison Crowe

Like an open window on a cold spring day
Like a rare bird standing on the shore
I am all but ready now to sail away
On the cool winds to fly forever more

We will call to conscience all we could believe
We will breathe the air while we can
It is not to what we owe the pleasure of
It is how, when the ground is weak, we stand

Take off now, and be free
You don’t owe yourself to me
You don’t owe a single thing to anyone

When you land it will be
What you’ve willed yourself to see
And the paths that you have taken will be one


from Welcome to Us 2, released April 3, 2018
