The nightingale sings each morning
Her sweet song weaved in midnights thread
Beneath her vale a kingdom's calling
If I could leave this grassy bed

But when I told you I was afraid to fall
Really I was afraid to fly at all

Deep in trial, bound and burning
Her restless charm has broken through
But between cheap denial and reckless yearning
To run from harm was all I knew

And when I told you I was afraid to fall
Really I was afraid to fly at all
We fly and we fall

From the summer's golden rays to the murky ocean floor
And sometimes there's some cause we're calling for
But mostly it seems we're chasing dreams to the shore

The Nightingale flies tonight
And I know the spell that she's weaving
It's not like I can't stand the fight
I just can't stand the leaving

So when I told you I was afraid to fall
Really I was afraid to fly
When I told you I was afraid to fall
Really I was afraid to fly at all
