Birds hovering over my head
Waiting for love or for prey
Will you decide which of these I will be today

I want to decide
When I say love, you fly
To the direction of night
To the darkness of your delight
To the end

Oh Shannon, your eyes are so bright
You are a circle of shadow and light
You're the embrace so many long for in the night
We're all going away, why don't you stay for a while

Seven days past, I saw a family feeding in the nest,
Now it's fifteen hours past you left me lying lonely on a stone rest,
Smoking like a man who'd been sentenced to death,
Doomed to lose sight and all senses and breath,
I was shivering, shaking when you left me alone
Hollow and shocked on the stone,
And bewildered

Oh Shannon, you burn and you bleed,
You are a refugee of health and disease,
Oh but you're a diamond from all the pressure and the heat
We're all going away, why don't you stay for a while

Birds hovering over my head
Waiting for love or for prey
Will you decide which of these I'm gonna be today

Oh Shannon, your eyes are so bright,
You are a circle of shadow and light,
You're the embrace I swear, I long for in the night
We're all going away baby, someday why don't you stay for a while
