lyrics

It was a cold September night
And I, alone, reclined in bed,
A candle lit; a story read.

And getting settled there I fell
Into a deep reflection half
Between my wakefulness and sleep

I heard an owl outside my room
Hawoo, hawoo, hawoo it’s true
To me it beckoned from the blue.

So in my liminality
His tree I crept outside to seek
My monkey slippers on my feet

In the hollow of the tree
I saw two nictitating eyes
Shining on me
And the creature spoke from the wood
In a low and trembling voice
I half understood
Then the world turned upside down
A shower of sparks sprung from the ground
And I thought I was dead
It was only in my head
I thought I was dead
It was only in my head

Before my very eyes
Saw the owl grow as tall as the sky
And the sparks came raining down
It was magic, magic
As I stood in the land of dreams.
What did it mean?

Then he said “do you pass the test?”
Pulled my heart right outta my chest
It was wreathed in dust and grime
Yeah that was mine
Saw all my troubles in its sheen
What did it mean?

“In a moment I’ll be gone
Through a window to a time that has slipped away.
You’ll awaken after long
With this song
And a riddle in your head”
This is what he said
This is what he said

How will you be born in the morning?
How will you be born in the morning?
How will you be born in the morning?
How will you be born in the morning?

I heard an owl outside my room
Hawoo, hawoo, hawoo it’s true
It questioned everything I knew

And in the violet hour I fled
Back to the safety of my bed
A lingering riddle in my head

In the morning I’ll be born with a new heart
With a new heart shining in me
In the morning I’ll be born with a new heart
With a new heart shining in me
In the morning I’ll be born with a new heart
With a new heart shining in me
In the morning I’ll be born with a new heart
With a new heart shining in me
