The crowd had thinned as she strode across the square,
He said, “I watched you taking the city.
I think you are so beautiful in brown my dear. I am not fit for a queen.
But I drew the bird that brought you here. I was wondering if you might stay
There he stood sun reflecting in his eyes as he awaited her reply

She said, “I first saw you at the top of that wall, the crowd was all rushing by
I wouldn’t have even noticed, she sighed,
“But then suddenly this hush and a quiet chord was ringing through me

The bravest thing is to stand alone in the light, stripped of your shell
Admitting that you’re not so sure you turned out right
Defenses dropped, the jay-bird’s heart, how you can see it beating

It won’t be all curls and tail-coats gusting
For there’s work and acres of dreams in our hands
Love is not a metal that fears rust, it’s the promise of dry land
And when our work takes us far across the sea
Two hands joined as wings we will follow in our freedom
Our freedom, free
