Morse Code - Jealous of the Birds Lyrics

Morse Code

[Verse 1]
I've stung like the nettles that line the backyard
And feigned things were easy when in fact, they were hard
Been burned before, but I hide where I'm charred
I'm a red fox in the snow, and I'll run
It's rained for five days and the starlings alight
On the buddleia when it's coming on night
You play piano and I sit down to write
We're ponies in a field of barbed wire
[Refrain]
You
You are alive
You
You are alive

[Verse 2]
I've weighed up the options, considered the roads
That might bring me to where I'm longing to go
Keep treating this life like I'm cracking morse code
I'm a field mouse in the grass, so hushed

[Refrain]
You
You are alive
You
You are alive
You
You are alive
You
You are alive
