Voices in the Sky Lyrics

Bluebird, flying high
Tell me what you sing
If you could talk to me
What news would you bring
Of voices in the sky

Nightingale, hovering high
Harmonize the wind
Darkness, your symphony
I can hear you sing
Of voices in the sky

    My mum asked me to get this song to play at her funeral. For her I think it expressed her wish for there to be some kind of way for her to carry on communicating with people she would be leaving behind (my dad, her grand children) and for them to know that they were important to her even though she would no longer be visible.

    This song is about people who have passed over - their voices in the sky.

    You don't need to be I'LL to hear and understand nature. Just look at the pigeons who see you possibly have a bag of food they hope you drop. Enjoy they get their hopes up till three of 35 pigeons say""wait one minute ""as they give you the evil eye laugh as they all leave at the same time, instinaeosly, giving you the pigeon slap sound effect to show their disdain, and marvel that even the sparrows follow suit, and now ,they are all gone, just to make a point

    Knowledge comes from many places. Sometimes it doesn't come from a teacher, but comes from observing a bird, the sky, a song, a game, etc. Being called to the sea is like an adventure into the unknown (lack of knowledge). He is trying to fill the void of knowledge in different ways.

    I think that the song is about a person who has a terminal illness and is trying to contact someone/something who can give his/her life meaning. I don't know; but that's what I feel when I hear the lyrics.
