WHEN THE BIRDS DIE

Written & Composed by Michael Woodhead

You can tell when the world is on its own
You can tell when the answer has been shown
War is over, but what a lie
For Life is, too, when the birds die

You can tell if it's worthwhile going on
You can tell if your trouble's come or gone
War is over, you breathe a sigh
For Life is, too, when the birds die

You can tell if the battle's finally o'er
You can tell if you've reached the homeland shore
War is over, and there you lie
For Life is, too, when the birds die
