lyrics

Birds in Barnstable by Alicia Mathewson ©2012

5:55 am, the sun is peaking through the clouds
and the birds sound like a symphony
coffee strong and hot
grass still wet with dew
I can’t imagine a day more perfect or true
Waking up on a Sunday with the birds in Barnstable
The back yard I knew as just a girl
Sitting on the sun porch with the birds in Barnstable
Opening my heart to the world

Let every child know this love
Let every man feel this free
Let every girl rise above
Let every boy be soft and happy
Let every cell regenerate
Like a perfect rising star
Let every heart recreate
The truth of who we are

5:55 pm the sun is falling down the sky
and the birds are falling off to sleep
beer cold and crisp
skin still hot with sun
I can imagine a day more perfect or free
Living life on a Sunday with the birds in Barnstable
The ocean I knew as just a girl
Swimming in the harbor with the birds in Barnstable
Opening my heart to the world

Let every child know this love
Let every man feel this free
Let every girl rise above
Let every boy be soft and happy
Let every cell regenerate
Like a perfect rising star
Let every heart recreate
The truth of who we are

And as the salt washes me clean
I remember your face
Thank you mom for how you lived your life
and how you let go with grace
Thank you mom for how you lived your life
and how you let go with grace
5:55 am the sun is peaking through the trees
and the birds sound like a symphony
mother clear and strong conducting now with her light
I can hear her voice perfectly
Letting go on a Sunday with the birds in Barnstable
The heart I knew as just a girl
Dancing in the life force with the birds in Barnstable
Opening my heart to the world

Let every child know this love
Let every man feel this free
Let every girl rise above
Let every boy be soft and happy
Let every cell regenerate
Like a perfect rising star
Let every heart recreate
The truth of who we are

about

Alicia Mathewson Barnstable, Massachusetts

Inspired by artists from Ani DiFranco to Snatam Kaur, Alicia Mathewson's music is transformational. A singer/songwriter, meditation guide and healer, she has been called a "sit-down comedian with angels flying out of her mouth." Alicia's third album, Wise Innocence, is more than an album - it's vibration that will inspire and awaken you to live the life you always imagined for yourself. ... more
