BIRDS OF ST. MARKS Lyrics - Jackson Browne

Review The Song (3)



(from the Jackson Browne: Going Home video)

Oh how sadly sound the songs the queen must sing of dying
A prisoner upon her throne of melancholy sighing
If she could see her mirror now
She would be free of those who bow and
Scrape the ground beneath her feet

Silently she walks among her dying midnight roses
Watches as each moment goes that never really know us
And so it seems she doesn't care
If she has dreams of no one there
Within the shadows of her room

But all my frozen words agree, and say it's time to
Call back, all the birds I sent to
Fly behind her castle walls, and I'm
Weary of the nights I've seen
Inside these empty halls

sponsored links
Wooden lady turn and turn among my weary secrets
And wave within the hours past and other empty pockets
Maybe we've found what we have lost
When we've unwound so many crossed entangling
Misunderstandings; but

All my frozen words agree and say it's time to
Call back all the birds I sent to
Fly behind her castle walls, and I'm
Weary of the nights I've seen
Inside these empty walls

Two Versions | Reviewer: Mike Lewis | 8/24/09

Hi. This was originally recorded on an album of demos in 1971 called The Criterion Demos with just Jackson's acoustic guitar as backing. The album has been bootlegged but not officially released (as far as I know).



Beautiful | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/4/08

I have been a huge Jackson fan since I was a teanager, some 30 years now and I have to say although I prefer the old classics, he has outdone himself with this song, the lyrics as well as the melody are, to put it simply, beautiful!



Ethereal Perfection, possibly his best. | Reviewer: sally | 11/6/06

This is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard, but it is severely marred by the obnoxious crowd noise. Is anyone aware of another version that is clean? Please email me, it is to be used for an important occasion. Thanks.
