The Song of the Nightingale

Here we go again. It’s 2015 and I’m bringing back my 52-second songs! This one might grow into a proper Manticess song someday. The nightingale is, of course, a great singer who died. I did have one specific in mind while writing the chorus, but it’s probably better you think of whoever comes to your mind. In other news, I’m attempting to make a video for each song.

#1 The Song of the Nightingale

Suddenly there was silence where there used to be her song
Her feathers had been shimmering and her voice had been so strong
Now the nightingale will sing no more
The hand of death has locked her door
Still I know her spirit will prevail
When we sing the song of the nightingale
