"Owls (Are Watching)" as written by Gavin Burrough, Ryan Richards, Matthew Davies-kreye, Kris Coombs-roberts and Richard Boucher....
Open windows above the sill, flowers bloom to make the air less chilled
Condescending statements of people in their cars
Waiting for the radio to save their lives, are you watching
Tell me are you watching, are you listening at all?

If it's better protected
The sights unseen
Dark skies surround you
Whatever that means

And there's a light on and no one's home
Tell me did you leave the light on?
There's a light on and no-one is home
Tell me did you leave the light on?

Owls in the night skies watching us pass by
Like ships in the night, covered in silver light
Owls in the night skies watching us pass by
Like ships in the night, covered in silver light

Are they waiting to take it away from me?
Eyes burn like matches and gasoline

And there's a light on and no-one's home
Tell me did you leave the light on?
There's a light on and no-one is home
Tell me did you leave the light on?

Owls in the night skies watching us pass by
Like ships in the night, covered in silver light
Owls in the night skies watching us pass by
Like ships in the night, covered in silver light

Owls in the night skies watching us pass by
Like ships in the night, covered in silver light
Waiting for the radio to save our lives, are you watching
Tell me are you watching, are you listening at all?

    Lyric CorrectionOpen windows above the sill, flowers bloom to make the air less chilled,
    Condescending statements of people in their cars,
    Waiting for the radio to save their lives, are you watching,
    Tell me are you watching, are you listening at all?

    Is this better pretending the sights I've seen,
    Dry skies surrround you, whatever that means.

    And there's a light on and no-one's home,
    Tell me did you leave the light on?
    There's a light on and no-one is home,
    Tell me did you leave the light on?

    Owls in the night skies watching us pass by,
    Like ships in the night, covered in silver light.
    Owls in the night skies watching us pass by,
    Like ships in the night, covered in silver light.

    Are they waiting to take it away from me,
    Eyes burn like matches and gasoline.

    And there's a light on and no-one's home,
    Tell me did you leave the light on?
    There's a light on and no-one is home,
    Tell me did you leave the light on?

    Owls in the night skies watching us pass by,
    Like ships in the night, covered in silver light.
    Owls in the night skies watching us pass by,
    Like ships in the night, covered in silver light.

    Owls in the night skies watching us pass by,
    Like ships in the night, covered in silver light.
    Waiting for the radio to save their lives, are you watching,
    Tell me are you watching, are you listening at all?

    General CommentCheers for that. Where did you get the lyrics from? I was trying to interpret by ear, but sometimes it's far too difficult to work out what he's saying.

    Lyric Correction"Is this better protected, the sights unseen.

    "Owls in the night skies watching as we pass by
    Like ships in the night, covered in silver light."
