This track is very close to my heart. I think we are all like the magpie really. We are all on one constant search. whether that be love, fame, career, money or well..anything! Sometimes we find it and sometimes we don't.


Do you remember
The magpie that day?
The way he pulled the chest apart,
Nothing in its way
In his way
No lock, no key
Just silver, he
unfastened it, low and behold
The magpie, is not home...

Go sleep now little bird,
Your day will surely come,
It may be lonely here alone,
At least you have your song..

Our friend dances
throughout this sapphire air,
In search of treasure for the heart,
But out of time, yet no sign,
No Luck, for he,
So silently,
Becomes a shadow on the wall,
The magpie is not whole

He waits eternal,
Melancholic stars evolve,
No silver lining to this cloud,
To late to cope,
Losing hope
With feathers grey,
This final day,
Treasure belongs no more to him,
The magpie does not win

Go sleep now little bird,
Your day has surely come,
It may be lonely here alone,
At least you had your song..
