Basia Bulat - Birds Of Paradise

I've been sleeping without memory
I think I'll lie a little longer
Wait for the crowds to go
Maybe I'll die in this unholy mass
And I'll be free

Yes that's what they say that I would be
When we came to watch the world be over
But there's too many fools
On this boat that made
I can hardly see the water

What's happened to me
I was down on my knees
I was praying to leave
But I never know when I've gone too far

This disaster in me
What a beautiful dream
That told me I'd be cleaner
Told me I'd be closer to God

Oh, the birds of paradise
Came to me yesterday
Laughed when they told me my fate
We'd be cold, we'd be tired, but we could breathe
And one day I'm gonna leave this place

What's happened to me
I was down on my knees
I was praying to leave
But I never know when I've gone too far

This disaster in me
What a beautiful dream
That told me I'd be cleaner
Told me I'd be closer to God
