Music Prompt #47: “Take Courage” by Andrew Bird

Hey folks,

I am retiring from the Friday Music Prompt. I came into this opportunity hoping to connect with so many different people and get to know you through music and your poetry. But I think I failed.

I enjoyed the time we had together, but now I need your help to find a replacement for the prompt. If you know of anyone who would be interested, please contact Mindlovemisery directly.

Thank you for everything.

Night’s falling, so take courage
that you’re not alone, no you’re not alone.
Night’s falling, so take courage
that you’re not alone, no you’re not alone
Then these words begin to crumble like the sidewalks
all around this crumby neighborhood.
And from the chalky Cliffs of Dover, I’d come over,
I’d start over if I could.

From the tropic of Cancer, to Capricorn,
you’re so far from you’re so far along.
Now you spin dirty laundry
You dream of the kind of love you knew the day you’re born

Night’s falling, so take courage
that you’re not alone, no you’re not alone.
Night’s falling, so take courage
that you’re not alone, no you’re not alone.

Night’s falling, night’s falling,
but you’re not alone, no you’re not alone.

You swallow far from home
It’s how you find your room

Though my words begin to crumble like the sidewalks
all around this crumby neighborhood.

And from these chalky Cliffs of Dover, I’d come over
I’d start over if I could.

Night’s falling, night’s falling,
but you’re not alone, no you’re not alone.
Night’s falling, night’s falling,
but you’re not alone, no you’re not alone.
Take courage, take courage,
that you’re not along, no you’re not alone.

Night’s falling, night’s falling,
but you’re not alone, no you’re not alone.
Take courage, take courage,
that you’re not along, no you’re not alone.

  1. Wishing you all the best. While the music might not have always been to my taste, the lyrics were often so stunning. Thank you for giving of yourself. I am sorry to see you go.
    Let us know how your world goes.

  2. You absolutely did not fail! I know it is difficult with a small site like this because we don’t get so much traffic/so many responses. You have done a great job and you will be greatly missed!
