lyrics

The Crane Came
© 2008 Jason Paul Johnston

So my wings touch the sky, but I’d sometimes come by
And perch high above everyone’s heads
I would sometimes stare down, or ignore all the clowns
In their sapien circus down there

Above on the branches, it would give me an edge
Over all that might harm me around
I would sometimes fly low, quickly come and then go
Look for something to eat on the ground

Till the cranes came and took it away
Men and cranes came and took it away

Yes I felt some regret, the day I came and set by
The tree that had lasted so long
Cause my father before, and his father ago
Had all perched there and practiced their song

Till the cranes came and took it away
Men and cranes came and took it away

I guess all things must die, but I’m wondering why
When the leaves were still green and gave shade
My only best bet, is that it was a threat
To the houses and progress they made

Till the cranes came and took it away
Men and cranes came and took it away
Till the cranes come and take it away
Men and cranes come and take it away
