Lyrics

I can hear the trees outside,
whispering
From where I sit, beside my window, listening

A quiet king, wide awake
whose thoughts will not leave him alone
Without a crown or kingdom
just a pillow for a throne

Looking out between the stars
at a hanging silver moon
Between the blinds of my window
casting bars across my room

And by my feet are books and bags
filled with many things
Like magic leaves and fairy tales
of magic rings

Full of thrills that glitter
that help me get to sleep
And all of them are bitter
and all of them are cheap

And outside there's a nightingale
in the cold
Who sings of things that come and go
the young and old

A quiet bird, singing songs
to fill the stars until daybreak
Set upon a golden bough
to keep a drowsy king awake

The nightingale outside my window
gently weeps
And as he cries, I close my eyes
And fall asleep

That lullaby voice of his
Is awfully soft
Calling me into the trees
to come get lost

Where fireflies tell glowing sighs
softly humming their delights
Of forty blackbirds baked in pies
and genies bottled in the night

And as I slip away into
that easy place
The rabbit hole to wonderland
and empty space

Kings and Queens are watching me
with gold mosaic face
Never smiling, always stern
and always frozen in their place

Far away in other kingdoms
other kings must be awake
Thinking of the things they took
and all the things they could not take

And in my thoughts, by a window
I can see A lovesick bird
Pushing his heart through his beak
And using tears to spell out words

A nightingale, singing songs
to fill the stars until daybreak
Set upon a golden bough
to keep a drowsy king awake
