“Boats And Birds” Lyrics

Boats and Birds By Gregory and the Hawk ArtworkIf you be my star
I’ll be your sky
You can hide underneath me and come out at night
When I turn jet black and you show off your light
I live to let you shine
I live to let you shine

But you can skyrocket away from me
And never come back if you find another galaxy
Far from here with more room to fly
Just leave me your stardust to remember you by

If you be my boat
I’ll be your sea
A depth of pure blue just to probe curiosity
Ebbing and flowing and pushed by a breeze
I live to make you free
I live to make you free




But you can set sail to the west if you want to
And past the horizon till I can’t even see you
Far from here where the beaches are wide
Just leave me your wake to remember you by

If you be my star
I’ll be your sky
You can hide underneath me and come out at night
When I turn jet black and you show off your light
I live to let you shine
I live to let you shine

But you can skyrocket away from me
And never come back if you find another galaxy
Far from here with more room to fly
Just leave me your stardust to remember you by
Stardust to remember you by

  27. Wicked song, really moves the heart. Thanks for blessing us all with this tune. <3 Definitely checking out some of your other songs.

  28. Starting off with, you have the most beautiful voice & lyrics I have heard in ages. I have yet to hear a song with more meaning than any of yours. This song is genius.

  29. wow i was browsing my friend’s ipod and i saw the artist and listen to the song.
    i completely fellin love with it, and i dont listen to this kind of songs
    my friends would tease me about it being my lulaby, but i accept.

    later in that day i told one of my friends to listen to it with me, she leaned on my shoulder and she started crying and i had to wipe the tears off of her!
    it was sooo cute!

  30. Friend actually gave me this song. And I loved it, wanted to hear mor of your stuff and did, now this song is one of my inspirations for a short story I’m writing.

  31. omg i saw my friends facebook status wit a a line from this song and i fell in love with it
    the love for this song grew so much when my boyfriend moved back to argentina and for some reason this song is the only thing that makes me feel better even though it reminds me of him!!!

  32. this song is awesome i love it. i found it on my sis ipod. it makes me think of my friend. that i would do anything to make him happy and even if that means him leaving. to go follow his dream.

  33. when i heard this song i was laying in bed with my gf and i fell in love with it. It has alot of meaning to it and thats why i love it. when i was feeling sad she used to sing it to me every nite and till this day she still will call me up and sing it. There is so many heart felt moments with it and i love it very much by far the best song ever…!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. I absolutely love this song.
    I downloaded what was supposed to be
    “Yellow Birds and Coal Mines” By the Scene Aesthetic, and instead I got this song.
    I fell in love with it instantly, and wasn’t too sad about not getting the song I was hoping for.

    Genius.

  35. this song inspired me. my friend payola sang it at an open mic night and i just fell in love with it. i love the phrase ” leave me your start dust to remember you by” and i wish i could have said that to my grampa who died when i was 5. i dont remember him but when i here this song i think of hime and the one memory i have left.

  36. This song is absolute and pure beauty. It basically is stating that love is willing to let someone go so they can be happy. I always think of it as a Mother to child song. Saying that the mother is willing to do anything for the child and watching the child grow up and away. It brings tears to my eyes. Amazing lyrics, beautiful imagery, and the sweetest melody. I sing it whenever im down πŸ˜€

  37. i LOVE this song. i love this phrase, “If you be my star, I’ll be your sky” it helps me remember true love exists πŸ˜€
