1. The Builders and the Butchers - Find Me in the Air
You waited your whole life,
said you're lookin' hard for something.
You look so hard and you never find nothing,
and the chances run like wind through your hair.
Find me, oh, find me in the air.
2. The Kinks - Big Sky
Big sky looked down on all the people looking up at the big sky,
everybody pushing one another around.
Big sky feels sad when he sees the children scream and cry,
but the big sky's too big to let it get him down.
Big sky too big to cry.
Big sky too high to see
people like you and me.
3. Laura Marling - Hope in the Air
No hope in the air,
no hope in the water.
Not even for me,
your last-serving daughter.
Why fear death, be scared of living?
Our hearts are small and ever thinning.
There is no hope ever of winning,
oh, why fear death? Be scared of living
4. M. Ward - I'll Be Yr Bird
I'm not the tiger you never had.
I'm not the first hit when you got it bad.
I'm not your second, I'm not your third,
but I'll be your bird.
5. Thrice - As the Crow Flies
Placed you in flannel coat
Months fly by, grow your bones
Feathers, skin, Bible black
By and by, you will spread your wings,
one day fly over me
6. The Microphones - My Roots are Strong and Deep
I stand tall, my feet are on the ground,
but compared to you I'm small. The things you need you just surround.
You're wrapped around the earth, you circle it with air.
7. Iron & Wine - Flightless Bird, American Mouth
Have I found you, flightless bird,
grounded, bleeding or lost you, American mouth,
big pill stuck going down?
8. The Beatles - Blackbird
Blackbird singing in the dead of night,
take these broken wings and learn to fly.
All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise.
