Lyrics

Eastern Blue
© Nat Colten

Oh starling can’t you see
the writing on the wall?
A cold wind fills the space between
your darkly colored wings.
As the colors fade,
the first leaves start to fall
and through the darkness
I will follow every downy call

Sing little bluebird your time has come!
And when that eastern sun rises over me
I feel your love.

Nothing ever stays the same.
I trust in you and I trust in change.
Fear of the great unknown.
Living life so comfortable
Yet insecure when I’m alone.

Oh mocking can’t you hear
that’s just what they say?
A cherry breaks from the ash’s fall
rubbed raw with open arms.
As death comes crashing down,
it litters all the way
and through the chaos
I will find a home for us to stay

Sing little bluebird your time has come!
And when that eastern sun rises over me
I feel your love.

Nothing ever stays the same.
I trust in you and I trust in change.
Fear of the great unknown.
Living life so comfortable
yet insecure when I’m alone

Oh warbler don’t you know
you’re always welcome here?
A field of colors has blanketed
our newly blazoned heads.
As life moves swiftly on
it burns and builds with laughter
and through the light I wash my mind
of all distrust and fear

Sing little bluebird your time has come!
Remember that love shines bright in your eye
From the eternal sun.
Sing little bluebird your time has come!
And when that western sun rises over me
I feel your love.
