Matthew And The Atlas - White Bird Lyrics




White bird in the morning
On the edge of the sun
Gold is the evening
When the daylight is done
I know that it's hard to face it
I know that it's not the same

Wildfire in the morning
With a ghost by my side
Wings made of ash now
So it's strange to confide
I know that it's hard to face it
I know that it's not the same

Is there something that I missed
Beneath the viaduct
While the humming birds gathered
Gathered in the dusk
Is there something that I missed
Beneath the viaduct
Am I hanging on a thread?

Stains glow in the midnight
As the fires dissipate
Maybe you were right
A fire will create
I know that it's hard to face it
I know that it's not the same

Is there something that I missed
Beneath the viaduct
While the humming birds gathered
Gathered in the dusk
Is there something that I missed
Beneath the viaduct
Am I hanging on a thread?
Just to buy me love

Matthew And The Atlas White Bird Comments
  1. Derp McDerpson

    I am unable to hear anything but "Was there something that I missed / beneath the VIADUCT" I cannot conceive of how that words can be parsed as "White Bird".

  2. Mr Potato Head

    Love yall.

  3. Johannes Nielsen

    Hope to see more of this kind of atlas! Sounds Like their old tracks, very nice

  4. badasston

    Reminiscent of their older tracks like Deadwood and I Will Remain but incorporated with the growth and experience from Other Rivers and Temple. I love it so much!

  5. JAGI JAGI

    I am the 94th to press that like

    Found Matthew and the Atlas right around the time "Temple" came out back in 2016, and that album helped me through one of the toughest times in my adult life. Can't describe how excited I am for the new release!

    Sloan Millar

    Couldn't agree me. Helped me through the loss of my 2nd baby at 22weeks. A pain that is slowly killing me.
