"We were owls (demo)" as written by and Michael L Shepard....
We were just seventeen
And all alone
We had our hands in the gutter
But our hearts in the warm clouds
She said I know it's gonna hurt like hell
But it's all right
We were just seventeen and so in love

I can see it that you're ready to go
Like a bat in the cave of my soul
We were owls barely escaping the day
Another moment and we'd give it away

We were just seventeen
And so afraid
We were balloons in the hands
Of the mothers in the Jesus parade
She said I know its gonna burn like fire but its all right
We were just seventeen and so in love
So in love, so in love, so in love , so in love

We were owls when they came in the night
They were looking for a creature to fight
I can see it that you were ready to go
Like a bat in the cave of my soul
We had nothing but the blood on our hands
We were sitting but were willing to stand

We were owls barely escaping the day
Another moment and we'd give it away

We were owls when they came in the night
They were looking for a creature to fight
I can see it that you're ready to go
Like a bat in the cave of my soul

We had nothing but the blood on our hands
We were sitting but willing to stand
We were owls barely escaping the day
Another moment and we give it away
