Lyrics and Music: A. Phillips

"Everyone was a bird

On, on, and out of sight

Everyone was a bird

The song was wordless

Wordless

Everyone was a bird

On, on, and out of sight"

 

— From Everyone Sang, by Siegfried Sassoon, 1918— 

 

There's a red kite flying above the pines

There's a black crow sat on the phone line

Skylarks fly, describe the sky

And we two follow the hillside

 

Through the stone piles up to the copper mine

Through the slate dumps up to the snow line

Follow the ridge to the eastern side

See concrete towers and power lines

Concrete towers and power lines 

 

But there's a red kite flying above the pines

There's a black crow sat on the phone line

Skylarks fly describe the sky

And we two follow the hillside

Still here, after 

Still here, after

 

Through the stone piles up to the copper mine

Through the slate dumps up to the snow line

Follow the ridge to the eastern side

See concrete towers and power lines

Concrete towers and power lines 

 

Still here, after 

Still here, after

Still here, after 

Red Kite
