"Cuckoo Song" as written by Karl Daniel Bareham, Alastair Owen Hussain, Robert Adam Stevenson and Spencer Charles Walker....
I won't be your cuckoo my love
Nor a thief on the way
A shameful regret
Or a promise on a string
And I will follow your heart
Until you let me in
I'll never be your cuckoo my love
I won't be a lesson learned in spring

Ooohhhhhh oh oh ooohhhhhhh oh oh ooohhhhhh

Don't be a cuckoo my love
If you ever want to know
The beat of your heart
Or the depth of your soul
And now I color my life
With the courage that you showed me
To never be a cuckoo my love
But I will take this wish and bury it in the snow

ooohhhhhhhh oh oh oooohhhhhhhhhh oh oh oooooohhhhhhh

The river you didn't cross
Grows deeper everyday
And for the rest of my life
Are you the one that got away
For we grow old
Would you show me the depth of your soul
And no we clip your wings
And we will build a home with the courage you have shown

Oooohhhhhhh oh oh ooooohhhhhhhh oh oh ooooooohhhhhhh

So put down your bow and arrow
Because time is on our side
I will be here in the morning
If there are fireworks tonight
This is the calm before the storm
The design is in your eyes
I'll never be a cuckoo my love
Oh I will take this wish and bury it in the snow (Cuckoo my love)
I will build a home with the courage you have shown (Cuckoo my love)
And I will take this wish and bury it in the snow (Cuckoo my love)
And if you cross this river
I'm yours and yours alone

    General CommentThe cuckoo is a bird known for its abilities in ventriloquism which makes its calls misleading if trying to discern the location of the bird.

    The meaning behind this song is a promise to never lead your love astray as a cuckoo bird could. This is a conclusion from knowing a bit about birds and also from the line "I won't be a lesson learned in spring", spring commonly known as being known as a time of new love, and the phrase "a lesson learned" hinting for itself to be a bitter experience
