Parrots in the Tropical Trees

Breathe Owl Breathe 2014

I thought they were kissing,
but they were biting
Parrots in the tropical trees
Well they don't have lips like you or I, so what do you say we kiss?

There's parrots in the tropical trees
in the ocean, the ocean
breeze

The giraffe stretches out his long neck
to the leaves he has not reached yet
and I am no giraffe
that's why I swing in a hammock

There's parrots in the tropical trees
in the ocean, the ocean
breeze

I was okay when I first moved away
now I'm in too deep

I wear my pain like a lion wears his mane
I wish you were here with me

There's parrots in the tropical trees
in the ocean, the ocean
breeze

The waves that crash are scary but inviting
The waves that crash are scary but inviting
The seagulls are larger than usual

Tidal wave
What gives you the entitlement to wash me away?
That's my love in the flood
This is how long my love lives on

Tidal wave
What gives you the entitlement to wash me away?
That's my love in the flood
This is how long I can hold on

I thought they were kissing,
but they were biting
Parrots in the tropical trees

I've lost somebody
I've lost somebody too
There's always a storm ready
to wash away everything you knew
This is how long my love lives on
