Eagle Song (The Staves)

I am a cardinal, red I am of blood and of bone And of heart and of head A thousand miles ahead and behind Oh, to be lost, Oh, to be wasting my time On a hill we lay in the sun At the foot of a statue Of old battles lost, battles won I remember your voice and your clothes A well chosen passage of words From a book I don’t know Oh me, oh my, oh man, what have I become? Running around Writing letters I’ll never send home Call me in the morning I’ll be alright Call me in the morning I’ll be alright Call me little honey and I’ll be fine Call me in the morning, I’ll be OK Call me in the morning, I’m far away Call me little darling and I’ll be fine The eagle flew above us Blankets wrapped around us Lucky that she found us Rooted to the ground X2 No-one will believe us Mountains as our witness Blankets wrapped around us The eagle flew above By the lake So high So high Call me in the morning I’ll be alright Call me in the morning I’ll be alright Call me little honey and I’ll be fine Call me in the morning, I’ll be OK Call me in the morning, I’m far away Call me little darling and I’ll be fine
