jackdaw lyrics – david gray

“jackdaw”

i’m like a jackdaw
cawing at your backdoor
scratching at your window pane
hey throw your window wide
and taste the april night with me again
girl we been veering
backwards disappearing
down in to the murky deep
baby come on
we’ll be along time gone
there’s time enough for sleep
and hey now don’t run and hide
your little heart away
if it’s gone
we’ll sure never find it
pining for lost innocence
our hammers beating hard
against that old facade
some other air to breathe
that we might break these molds
and free our restless souls
start to believe
that we can rise above
our pettiness and love
like we ain’t loved before
free on this earth
as the surf that rolls
and crashes on the sh*r*
and hey now don’t run and hide
your little heart away
if it’s gone
we’ll sure never find it
pining for lost innocence
tantalisingly i saw
our shadows moving through the door
traces from a different time
when i was yours and you were truly mine
all mine
and i still want you yeah
i still want you yeah
i still want you yeah
i still want you yeah
and i still want you yeah
i still want you yeah
i still want you yeah
i still want you
and baby don’t run and hide
your little heart away
if it’s gone
we’ll sure never find it
pining for lost innocence
pining for lost innocence
pining for lost innocence
