about

It seems like every time I get close to living my life with no apologies, some invisible force pulls me back. So I keep trying to remember what the birds know.

lyrics

what is this gravity
pulling me away from free
whenever i'm about to find
my way back up

i watch the turtle doves
they live inside the banyan tree
they can fly and they can land
it seems so easy to them

i'd like to be that free
feel the wind under me
but lately i'm so busy running 'round
that the wind instead
well she pulls me down

every morning i wake up
and pour myself into a coffee cup
i look outside and i can see
the doves the trees the sea

then i jump into my car
and drive and drive well it's pretty far
so i can buy the things i need
and hope will insulate me

i'd like to be that free
feel the wind under me
but lately i'm so busy running 'round
that the wind instead
well she pulls me down

what is this body
what is this life
trying to find out
why why why why why
is turning every thing to white

trying to find out
why why why why why
is turning every thing to white

what is this gravity
pulling you away from me
whenever we're about to find
some common ground
