about

A cover of Sufjan Stevens' Majesty Snowbird

lyrics

Rain bird laughing in the olive tree, la la dee dah
Collared shirt, with the alabaster altarpiece you made for me
And some are sweet, and some forgiven
Your advice is all that seems to matter much to me
Call it sweet, call it something paradise

Is it the right word (Is it the right word)
You designed for me?
Is it the broken word (Is it the broken word)
Or good advice I need?
Is it the half as sweet? (Is it the half as sweet?)
Set aside for me?
Is it mysterious? (Is it mysterious?)
Is it something ripe and sweet?

Snowbird, your sister said she needed me, la la dee dah
Show them first, show them what you did for me, la la dee dah
Quiet song, and little soldier sent beneath
And epaulettes that covered every shoulder
Stutter sweet, "Come take
Forget the things I said to please."

Is it the right word that (Is it the right word)
You designed for me?
Is it the broken word (Is it the broken word)
Or good advice I need?
Is the tapestry (Is it the tapestry)
Set beneath my wings?
Is it mysterious? (Is is mysterious?)
Glorious? Indeed

Don't stop, don't break
You can delight because you have a place
Quiet room, I need you now
