Liner Notes: 

Too many tears to explain, hopefully the lyric makes sense

Lyrics: 

v1
Trouble is dying
Her first eighteen months lived in hell
In a cage in a so called civilised place
But for two extra years she's lived free
Free to roam, to live calm and happy
But now my sweet Trouble is dying
And I can do nothing about it

ch
Grief is the strangest thing
Changes everything
Brings so much pain with it
Nothings quick
But the kick you get
Over and over again

v2
Trouble is dying
I made her a deep sweet hay nest
So deep it was soft like her downy feathers
Trying to make this thing as gentle
As it can possibly be when we leave
As now my sweet Trouble is dying
And I can do nothing about it

ch
Grief is the strangest thing
Changes everything
Brings so much pain with it
Nothings quick
But the kick you get
Over and over again

v3
Trouble is dying
As I write this the tears flow down hard
For I will miss the sweet noises she used
To welcome me when I was near
To answer me when I spoke to her
And now my sweet Trouble is dying
And I can do nothing about it

Br
Humankind are the cruellest
Most selfish creatures to exist
On this hell hole of a ball
I cry for her first eighteen months
I cry for her bare skin
Featherless and sore
I cry for her sisters
Who didn't get two more years
To roam free

ch
Grief is the strangest thing
Changes everything
Brings so much pain with it
Nothings quick
But the kick you get
Over and over again
