Song clip



Dawn Patrol  ©2000  Michael Jerling 

Coffee light
Forbidden cigarette				
The eastern sky 
Turns to pink and red
The sprinklers whirl 
On the second green
The lizards run 
Up and down the screens

When the snowbirds come 
In their plumage bright
They’re so full of hope 
They’re so full of fight
When the snowbirds fly 
You can never know
Just who will return 
From this dawn patrol

From outside the gates 
The houses look the same
The hair is mostly white 
There seems a golden haze
On this modest paradise 
So orderly and clean
The battles won and lost 
Are not ones you can see

When the snowbirds come 
In their plumage bright
They’re so full of hope 
They’re so full of life
When the snowbirds fly 
You can never know
Just who will return 
From this dawn patrol

Coffee light 
Forbidden cigarette
The eastern sky 
Turns to pink and red

When the snowbirds come 
In their plumage bright
They’re so full of hope 
They’re so full of fight
When the snowbird flies 
You must always know
We are comrades all 
On this dawn patrol
We are comrades all 
On this dawn patrol
