  1. Nightingale

From the recording In It Together

Lyrics

NIGHTINGALE
I know that you’re hurting, I’ll help ease the pain
You ask me, “Who cares?” Please don’t ask me again
I’ll sit through the night with you, I’ll cradle your fears
I’ll wrap-up your sadness and dry your tears

I trained with the best, gave my heart and my soul
From the stern, from the caring, I learnt from them all
And I’ve never been swayed, from the path that I trod
Been there at beginnings, and meetings with god

Year after year, and day after day
Year after year, and day after day

I’ve nurtured and cared, I’ve suffered it all
For a promise, for a prayer, I’ve given my all
Despite the indifference, and a pittance for pay
From my duty, my burden, not once did I stray

Year after year, and day after day
Year after year, and day after day

Now my own wings are broken, I can no longer fly
Just one less Nightingale in a darkening sky
And I hear myself asking “Who cares anyway?”
That kind of devotion, it’s being taken away
