lyrics

Kittiwake Kittiwake flying far inland
All alone no sign of sand
She asks the robin in the tree
I am a bird of the sea
Do you have a place for me?

And the robin said you're not from round here
Take a look around there's no seabirds near

You can never touch land
So fly on, fly on
And you will never feel the ground
Never the ground

Kittiwake Kittiwake flew alongside the crow
Over a place that she did not know
I am from the beach sand
And I need a hand
This is not what I planned

And the crow said we don't know your song
You're not welcome here you do not belong

You can never touch land
So fly on, fly on
And you will never feel the ground
Never the ground

Kittiwake Kittiwake flew on into the night
When the nightingale came into sight
Where - can I find a home
I'm feeling all alone
I miss the ocean foam

Said the nightingale listen my dear
Look inside yourself all becomes clear

You can never touch land
So fly on, fly on
And you will never feel the ground
Never the ground

Kittiwake Kittiwake told the morning wren
My travels have come to an end
I may not belong
But I know who I am
When I sing my song

And th wren she said you're strange to my ear
But your voice is strong we need you down here

Now you've found your land
Stay on, stay on
And you will always feel the ground
Always the ground
