Nightingale

Nightingale

Written in an afternoon.
Brought to the band a week later.
Performed the week after.
I think it could be a good one.
The band version is more sonic youth than this pretty shaky acoustic demo, but they both have a place.

This one is for Liam.


 

 Nightingale
(Words and music: Andrew Savage)

The creases that you looked for, you found
And those friends that made them call you out
You're not the only on who knows
It is secrets
gestures
clones

And I still believe
You're the nightingale
I can see you bleed

You are night and vision and sound
Heartbroken, unholy
In this shroud
You got wrapped up and shipped out
Leaving you my number
Seek me out

And I still believe
You're the nightingale
I can see you bleed
