Nightingale, won’t you stay?

If you get too high you’ll float away

 

Your voice still has so much more to say

The best of them burn out instead of fading away 

Their sound makes the biggest wave 

 

Love is blind you couldn’t see 

How much love you had yet to keep 

How much love for you was had 

Know you were no good

Better than that

You outstood

 

Love was a flame

Downward Spiral 

Toxic fame

Warm gun 

Losing game

Fading back to black 

Final Frame 

 

Sung from the soul

Too much fuel for the fire

All consuming out of control 

 

Too bright 

Lights blinded 

Nightingale cannot see, cannot sing

Clipped your feathers 

Fly away on your little wing 

 

Nightingale, you need respite

Nightingale, don’t give up

You still have so much fight

Don’t let the flashes outshine your light 

 

Nightingale can’t you see?

How your song has set me free 

Shattered that which fettered

With just a brush of your feathers

 

Nightingale so beautifully broken 

Sentence given ere any words were spoken 

 

Nightingale, your wine and wail 

Sent me flying with the force of a gale

 

Nightingale when I was too weak to move on

I was saved by your song

 

 

Nightingale I wish I could have given a fraction of what you gave

Your voice, your words had the power to save              

 

If only your effect

Could be reflected

Imperfectly perfect

Don’t know how much you affected

 

Oh Nightingale

You flew away today

I’m struggling to find the words to say

 

Want to scream stay

But it’s far too late

You’ve gone away

 

Nightingale needed someone to love

Nightingale please hear my plea

Hope you’ll be someone to watch over me

 

Nightingale, to know you was to love you

Wrap your wings around the moon

Nightingale sung so proud, gone too soon

 

Your echo will never fade away

Grateful for what you gave

To tread the path that you paved

The reverb of your sound

Nightingale, if you were lost

I hope peace you now have found
