Neko Case Lyrics

9. Magpie To The Morning



The magpie comes a-calling
Drops a marble from the sky
Tin roof sounds alarming
Wake up child
Let this be a warning says the magpie to the morning
Don't let this fading summer pass you by
Don't let this fading summer pass you by 

Black hands held so high
The vulture wheels and dives
Something on the thermos yanked his chain
He smelled your boring apex
Rotting on the train tracks
He laughed under his breath
Because you thought you could outrun sorrow

Take your own advice
'Cause thunder and lightning gets you rain
Run an airtight mission, a Cousteau expedition
Find a diamond at the bottom of the drain
A diamond at the bottom of the drain

Here I go

Mockingbirds sing in the middle of the night
All his songs are stolen so he hides
Stolen from the mouth of the whippoorwill, screaming car alarms
He sings I'm four years special
He knows you're afraid of the dark
Come on sorrow, take your own advice
Hide under the bed, turn out the lights

The stars this night in the sky are ringing out
You can almost hear them saying
Close your eyes now kid
Close your eyes now kid
Morning's teeth are lit
They are waiting
They are waiting
