Without a feather ever lost


Through the window I see your soul
Leaving like a flock of birds
That has now decided to leave and go...
Without a single word,
Or leave a single feather.

Through the window I see your soul
Through the window, I see a yellow taxi
And seven cases, I now see as maybe a sign.
That you‘ll leave myself empty and confused
Lost without you who once were mine?

So now its winter in my heart
And I pray you’ll stay to see the spring,
With me, I and the flowers come through…
Through the window I see your soul
No longer a fair weather friend of mine…

But darling I want nothing more
Than to turn back the hand of time with you
And not just see the flowers bloom
But also - pick them with you.
And watch those flocks of your soul returned.

Without a feather ever lost.

Adam Scrivener, if ever it thee befall
Boece or Troilus for to write anew,
Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
