about

A song about finding your voice in those times when it feels a bit lost.

lyrics

Sky-blue beauty
You fly near the ground
When your colour is of wide skies
Oh I follow the earthbound flight
Of all your wanders
What can I do?
You sang for me and I’ll sing for you
Chalkhill blue
Chalkhill blue

And you know what to do
With the violets I bring you
Cause they’ll bloom in the winter
Stasis reigns
A path remains
Shining in splendour
Oh are you moved
By this quiet love?
It hangs unseen
On a chalkhill breeze
That stirs the velvet barley
Chalkhill blue
Chalkhill blue

Sky-blue, you don’t see
How lovely your colours are
Oh-oh, you don’t see
How beautiful you are

There’s hush in the west
And hope from the dust
And you must remember
All the colours you bring
To this world when you sing
Just being what you are
From a chalkhill blue
To the white rose that blooms in the garden
Chalkhill blue
Chalkhill blue

You’ll see beyond the trees
The sky awaits your song
You’ll find below the sky
The chalkhill where you belong
