lyrics

Soft (Sound Of Falling Things)

A leaf of a maple tree
A book from a shelf
Your shirt at the end of the day
Raindrops on the waves of the sea

A bomb from an aeroplane
A sheet of linen
A pin in a quiet theatre
The jumping trout returns again

Glass of a glass-stained window
Thunder on our roof
The patient’s heart from surgeon’s hands
The guillotine in 1801

A snowflake on the fire
Ashes on the snow
A cup on our stone floor kitchen
Bird dropping on a wire

A meteor in the night
A star once had grace
Ray of light on half opened eyes
Bird of prey in decisive flight

about

Cairns & Edward Norway

Cairns & Edward is a songwriting, musical group of 3, based in Norway. We love writing songs and making melodies together.
