sea to sea
a bridge lies between you and me
walk across this wrote in harmony
when songbirds sing
deep blue sky
in my dream i could almost fly
but i dont even have to try
when songbirds sing

when my world caves in
i'll find peace within
hearing your voice again
when songbirds sing

when my world caves in
and the lights go dim
hearing your voice again
brings comfort to me

a comfort so soothing to me
as soothing as this melody
when songbirds sing

evening tide
wash away all these deep blue nights
happiness won't seem to pass you by
when songbirds are singing

when my world caves in
i'll find peace within
hearing you voice again
when songbirds sing

when my world caves in
and the lights go dim
hearing your voice again
brings comfort to me

    General CommentHoly crap.. I've always heard of these guys, but I never really got a chance to hear them. I first heard this song in a promo with Coheed and Cambria. I nearly melted. I immediately went out and bought the CD.

    General Commentjust like Hearshots findings, I've heard of these guys for some time now...really liked the lyrics, but never heard them. The singer has an extremely awesome voice, but it sounds so very familar to me, did she sing back up for anyone? or do a duet with anyone? maybe with say NFG or Unwritten Law?? it just sounds so familar to me.
    The chorus to this song hold true...especially to me..."when my world caves in, I'll find peace within/ hearing your voice again, when songbirds sing" that says it all, no matter how hard the day has been, one voice can make it all alright. However I think this song is about death...I could be wrong but just think about death and re-read the lyrics...makes sense to me..especially when she sings "when my world caves in/when the lights go dim/ hearing your voice again/brings comfort to me. I think by those lyrics she means something along the lines of "when i die, i'll only be happy when we are together again, in the afterlife and through eternity in which we'll never be apart" i'm no expert, so dont quote me or anything...maybe i'm just reading into it too much

    General Commentbasically an hour later...and i've found out where i've heard her voice before...she did do a duet/background vocals on a song with another band...and the other band is none other than Dashboard Confessional's "Age six racer" (great song!) it was bothering me so bad trying to figure out where i heard her voice...thank God i found out. Chris and her voice mesh perfectly on "Age six racer"

    General CommentTRHW is one of my fav "emo" bands, Jolie has the most beautiful voice I ever heard, if I believed in angels I bet they sing like her...
    Me and my g/f decided on this song to be "our song"... I love both their cd's to death, and wish that they would come up to Toronto sometime in the near future...

    so go out and pick up "State Of Feeling Concentration" and "Horizon"... the cd's are bloody amazing!!!!
