bemuzic busking in Bury! - Black Crow

This was my first time busking in Bury St Edmunds, and the first time I'd played this new song.
I recorded a djembe loop at home beforehand to save carrying the djembe!!
Lyrics:

Black Crow

There's a black crow in the branches
looking down at me.
They say that it's a bad sign.
Don't know what it means,

and the sun goes behind,
behind a cloud.

Chalk lines on the pavement
wake me from my dreams.
Soon they'll be forgotten.
Washed away by rain,

and the sun and the rain,
weave colours in the sky.

A clock is ticking loudly,
filling up my head.
No one ever winds it,
but it isn't going to stop,

and the earth moves around,
around the sun.

There's a black crow in the branches
looking down at me.
They say that it's a bad sign.
Don't know what it means,

and the sun comes out,
from behind a cloud.
