As the Crow Flies

from by Jeff and Maya Bohnhoff

lyrics

Crooked fingers pointing out a crooked lie.
Crows cry murder as they cross dark skies.
They spy out secrets with their ant-black eyes
Wheel in circles as the crow flies...

Spill your dreams like water on the earth.
The path is rugged to a painful birth.
Clouds ride heavy in their steel-gray girth.
What would a single drop of rain be worth?

Here it lies
The end of everything that can’t be disguised.
In unsettled skies
Courting chaos where the crow flies.

Meet me halfway, meet me on the plain.
Meet me in a place beyond the reach of names.
Call me softly, call me insane
I’ll take no credit, yeah I’ll take the blame.

Here it lies
The end of everything that can’t be disguised.
In unsettled skies
Courting chaos where the crow flies.

Above our heads flocks track
Glide an easy path
Light slips through
Tints the ground deep blue.
Just enough to see
It’s not the way for me
Where the crow flies free
Is not the way for me.

Give me sympathy, give me shame.
Give me nothing,
it’s really all the same.
Give your company,
I won’t make a claim.
Our roads’ converging no matter where we came.

Here it lies
The end of everything that can’t be disguised.
In unsettled skies
Courting chaos where the crow flies.

Ignore their cries
We can’t be shackled to these crooked lies
In unsettled skies
Courting chaos where the crow flies.

about

Jeff and Maya Bohnhoff San Jose, California

Jeff and Maya have an identity crisis. Their music is sometimes uproariously funny parody (like their spot-on "Bohemian Rhapsody" parody "Midichlorian Rhapsody", or hauntingly beautiful, like "Road to Jerusalem" or "Manhattan Sleeps". One way or another, their music will create strong emotions. Jeff and Maya have been creating music together since 1979, and plan to continue for some time to come. ... more
