Amanda Shires – Take It Like A Man Lyrics

Amanda Shires – Take It Like A Man Lyrics

Like a common loon I started hearing birds
Birdsong everywhere a lark in the shower
From the night to the morning after
Warblers and wrens, hymn at my throat
Shook and quivering, I could have crowed
Oh I could have crowed

I was snared by your wrist
I know what the cost is
The octaves of consequence
I know the cost of flight is landing
and I know I could take it like a man
I know I could take it like a man

Falls of fascinations the sky was leaking light
like your eyes do that shipwrecked expression
I need more words for blue
Trilling in the tree the way I measure you
Fractured thirteenths that grin that you give
When you want me to quit

Falling further and falcon swift
I know what the cost is
In the octaves of consequence
I know the cost of flight is landing
And I know I can take it like a man
I know I can take it like a man
I know I can take it like a man

Falling further and falcon swift
I know what the cost is
In the octaves of consequence
I know the cost of flight is landing
And I know I can take it like a man
