Down by the Sea

(Arranged by Dileep (aka AR Rahman)

Verse 1:

It’s a strange story you could not have heard
Of a raven that fell in love with a bird
She came from the North where winter was cruel
She came to his land to find winter fuel
But he should have known his love was absurd
‘Cause he was a raven and she was a bird.


Down, down down by the sea where the waters are gray
And the fish cannot see
There’s a raven, who’s scanning the empty blue sky
He’s calling and calling oh soon he should die.

Verse 2:
When the North shed its winter she got ready to go
He said will you come back she said I don’t know
So he watched until she was a speck in the sky
He thought he should wait there he didn’t know why.


Verse 3:

Two summers had flown it took one more to bring
The breaking of air by the clap of her wings
The beach was all bare as the back of a hand
But she found some black feathers and bones in the sand
So she picked up a feather and took to the sky
There was nobody there to call out good-bye
Ah there was nobody there to call out good bye.
