lyrics

There's a cold wind coming down between the trees tonight
It's turning them summer leaves to autumn red
And I was just thinking this feels like the start of something new
When you said "this feels like it could be the end"

But this is a song about the wind that howls
Not the burnt out tree with its roots in the ground
Cos that point of view does nobody any good
Won't you pick up your heels like you know you should

There's a flock of geese cutting out across the pale sky tonight
Leaving this city this island in their wake
And it made me think it's time to see some place new
When you said "we're going to die here in this place"

But this is a song about the high flying bird
Not another sorry tale about the rocks on the earth
Cos that point of view does nobody any good
Won't you pick up your heels like you know you should

So sing me a song about the wind that howls
Not the burnt out tree with its roots in the ground
Cos that point of view does nobody any good
Won't you pick up your heels like you know you should
