From the Vault #8



This week, I have a very rough piano/vocal demo, as well as the instrumental backing track for "O Hummingbird." They are both currently available on soundcloud.

I posted the piano/vocal demo though it makes me cringe, but I'm posting it anyway as a deliberate act of "accepting things as they are."

In this song we feel the intense flapping of a hummingbird's wings as a metaphor for wanderlust. The hummingbird is the spirit of freedom. She flies where she wills and chooses not land. Underneath it all, she longs for a place to belong... to just be,

O Hummingbird

o my heat wants to hover

wants to belong in one place

but there's so much life to discover

and so much open space

I wanna fill me in

complete my cravings

there's something down deep

inside of me that needs saving

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

flutter away

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

don't mutter if you've got something to say

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

gimme a taste

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

gimme a drop of sweet nectar today

o hummingbird

o hummingbird

have you heard the song of us

o hummingbird

o, there's a tune that I hear

that needs a refrain

my eardrums pound a constant rhythm

like rail-tracks to a train

I wanna ride it out

see where we go from here

we're still seeking something cryptic

that needs to be made clear

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

flutter away

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

don't mutter if you've got something to say

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

give me a taste

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

gimme a drop of sweet nectar today

o hummingbird

o hummingbird

have you heard the song of us

o hummingbird

I believe in magic

when you put it in context

we make miracles happen

in our bodies and in our beds

trust me

touch me

and see where we go next

we are truly blessed

yes

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

flutter away

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

don't mutter if you've got something to say

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

give me a taste

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

gimme a drop of sweet nectar today

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

flutter away

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

don't mutter if you've got something to say

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

give me a taste

hummingbird

o, hummingbird

gimme a drop of sweet nectar today

o hummingbird

o hummingbird

have you heard the song of us

o hummingbird

o hummingbird

o hummingbird, hummingbird, hummingbird

have you heard the song of us

o hummingbird
