NIGHTBIRDS Lyrics – GRANT LEE PHILLIPS

feathers and furs
nightbirds
only come out after dark
hear ’em all singin’
nightbirds
crying like no meadowlark
velvet and pearls
mausoleum girls
leathery jacketed boys
out on a limb
at the end of the bar
shunned from the island of joy
waiting for the silver moon to come
and set ya free
waiting for the silver door to swing
wide like a jailbird’s dream
powder and gloves

night doves
only come out after hours
thick with perfume
by the light of the tomb
fresh as a funeral flower
waiting for the silver moon to come
and set ya free
waiting for the silver door to swing
wide like a jailbird’s dream
feathers and furs
nightbirds
only come out after dark
hear ’em all singin’
nightbirds
crying like no meadowlark
