Another Bird

Liner Notes

I created the instrumental, Sammi wrote lyrics, sang, played uke, and came up with a new chord progression. I went back to my original tracks, and updated the best I could. More J (in Kenya) recorded vocals

It's a little wonky sounding now, we're goingto keep tinkering with the recording.

Lyrics

More than just another day
Wind blow where they want, away
One more bird on that same sweet wire
Just one more on the same sweet wire

Walking away
From everything I ever wanted to be
Telling my truth
To anyone who never listened to me

Just another bird on that same sweet wire
Heard all the same on that same sweet wire

Bridge:
Still I'll fly around the sky,
All open to the changes,
Can we fly with open eyes,
While all the world arranges

Swahili part by More J:
Ndege wengine hawataelewi kipindi walichomo

(Some birds may not understand different seasons in their lives no matter how much you educate them)

Ila muda muda unakuja watajua, Ila muda unakuja wataelewa.

Not all birds fly and if they fly it takes much time to learn how to fly so as to adopt to their ways of survival when hard times comes)

Happy dance listening here. Song lyrics are special, do your own thing. Love the rhythm and instrument.

Great song and vox. As Kate rightly says: 'a jam'. Got yourself a new follower.

I love the mix of English and Swahili! What a jam. The bird analogies are precious <3. Truth. We are all on that same sweet wire. Nice work!

More than just another day
Winds blow where they want, away
Another bird on that same sweet wire
(Another bird)
Just one more on the same sweet wire
(Another bird)

Walking away
From everything I ever wanted to be
Telling my truth
To anyone who never listened to me
Just another bird on that same sweet wire
(Another bird)
Heard all the same on that same sweet wire
(Another bird)

Still I fly unfriendly skies all open to the chan-ges
Can we fly with open eyes while all the world ar-ran-ges

More than just another day
Winds blow where they want, away
Another bird on that same sweet wire
(Another bird)
Just one more on the same sweet wire
(Another bird)
