Lyrics

I saw you bathing in the river
I saw you throwing off the water from your beautiful wings
I want to live a life of brightness and purity
Beautiful like you

    Envy, desire
    Waiting on the wire
    Till the other birds are gone
    Wade in the springs
    To bleach those dirty wings
    The raven and the swan
    The raven and the swan

I was a circle in the water
Spreading out along the edges, and breaking up on the shore
A little bit of time and I'm beautiful
I'm beautiful like you

    [Chorus]

Cool song, JW. The tune keeps playing in my head and I can imagine listening to it whilst burning a log on the beach or beside a river.

It's a beautiful song; reminds me of Aesop's fable of the same name. I'm guessing that was the inspiration...
