“My heart is on a wire, sitting pretty like a bird.”
There’s an immediate understanding between a soul and a song, an unexplained thought or feeling which passes between them, recognizing the significance the songwriter has buried amidst the combination of notes and lyrics. She has given you her heart, her truth. She has walked away from loss and has composed a piece that have been stripped to its most necessary parts; while we listen with curiosity and wonderment as she tenderly calls, as a love slowly drifts apart, as each verse is unveiled with striking intimacy. She allows her vocal to remain pure and haunting, writing her path to rediscovery on the pads of her fingers and upon the smooth texture of the strings. She has given you a gift that must be embraced with care. She has asked you to find a piece of yourself within the story she writes.
“I’m growing like a seed; rain’s been falling on me. I’ve been covered in cold. I’ve been shrouded and downed. My heart is on a wire, sailing pretty like a bird, but the hunter is out and the eagle is hurt. The word that I feel, feel it all. Yes, I can feel. Feel it all.
I’m looking to the sky and I’ll be listening to the stars; maybe thinking of you and wondering where you are. Do you know what you’ve done for me? You made my branches grow. Now they can play with the wind and they can carry the snow. And they can feel, feel it all. Yes, they can feel. Feel it all.
So, take what you want; leave what you don’t need. I’ll go looking for you. You keep your eye out for me. ‘Cause our hearts are on a wire, sitting pretty like a bird, but the hunter is hunting and the eagle is us. We can feel, feel it all. Yes we can feel. Feel it all.”
