Improvisation section



Music just repeats with following stanzas





Closing my dream inside its paper bag.

Thought I saw angels but I could have been wrong

Search in my case,

can't find what they're looking for.

Waving me through

to cry you a song.



It's been a long time

still shaking my sings

Well I'm a glad bird

I got changes to ring.



Lights in the street

peeping throught curtains drawn.

Rattling of safety chain taking too long.

The smile in you eyes

was never so sweet before

I came down from the skies

to cry you a song.
