Turtle Dove Lyrics

Turtle dove you wake me with a melancholy cry
as the sun streaks the sky and the dawn defeats the night
do you try to wake me from my sleep
to open the windows and hear you weep?

Do you sit there, watching, as I lay my head to rest?
at night when my sadness tries to confess
is it hung above me as I dream?
oh turtle dove, I am not what I seem
ooooo
oh turtle dove, I am not what I seem

Why don't you preen your feathers and fly into the light?
Oh, I would fall like Icharus, despairing of my plight
The soles of my feet are heavy on the ground
But when I close my eyes I am heaven bound
oooooo
when I close my eyes I am heaven bound

Turtle dove, tell me, what more do you see?
Is anyone else at all like me?
Do others fail do they fall, do they fly
To find fields of plenty, And peace of mind
ooooooo
To find fields of plenty, And peace of mind
