"Songbird" is based on Orson Scott Card's novel Songmaster.
Chorus: I dwell in the Songhouse And song is my breath I will sing my life long And in shrouds made of song I will sleep at my death I was born to be Songbird And my song will be love And the music will rise Through the depths of the skies To the planets above I was bought in the market For silver and song And I grew in the Songhouse To be noble and strong And the song grew within me And my voice soon took wing Now the love cradles 'round me With each note I sing Chorus As the Emperor's Songbird I was trained from the start From the very first teacher Who opened my heart To the people who heard me In the palace each day I have given my music And my spirit away Chorus I am old now and silent And my songs are all sung And the tales of my lifetime Will not pass my tongue But the glory still haunts me And my lessons survive And the work of the Songbirds Will continue to thrive Chorus
