  • Lyrics: Morning Mist You’ll write your own story You’ll watch the paint Peel from your picture And you know she’s a saint Still you utter words that you would never stutter when you’re self-aware And now your tone has grown so wistful Remember back when in the morning mist We’d stumble in the dawn Our heads full of words Screaming out the songs Screaming at the birds The birds the birds the birds The birds the birds the birds The birds the birds the birds Come on brother no we’re not going to go follow the others down the yellow brick road‘Cos you know yellow’s a cowardly colour don’t you know and why’s your tongue grown so wistful Remember back when in the morning mist We’d stumble in the dawn Our heads full of words Screaming out the songs Screaming at the birds The birds the birds the birds The birds the birds the birds The birds the birds the birds Came so far on your own Went so well from the get go On your own it falls apart Came so far on your own Went so well from the get go On your own it falls apart It falls apart It falls apart Come on brother no we’re not going to go follow the others down the yellow brick road‘Cos you know yellow’s a cowardly colour don’t you know and why’s your tongue grown so wistful Remember back when in the morning mist We’d stumble in the dawn Our heads full of words Screaming out the songs Screaming at the birds The birds the birds the birds The birds the birds the birds The birds the birds the birds
