In celebration of spring and Mother’s Day, folk/soul duo, Joselyn & Don, have released their third single, “Mama Bird.” Its minimalist lyrics capture the tugs at a mother’s heart: wanting to soar, wanting to stay close to care for young ones, and the pain when they leave the nest. In this time of quarantine, these elemental struggles are put into high relief, and we feel our connection with nature more strongly. Interlocking acoustic guitars complement the song’s soulful feel, and Joselyn’s intimate vocals tug at the listener. The crowd-sourced lyric video was compiled from 100’s of photos submitted by fans, and released on Mother’s Day. “Mama Bird” is an offering to mothers everywhere, and to the children they raise.

Lyrics

Mama bird, bird, bird, where will you go
Mama bird, bird, hear you singing so low

Your babies are crying, but so is the sky
Mama bird never needs to ask why

Mama bird, bird, bird, where will you go
Mama bird, bird, hear you singing so low

Life is a hunger, the beat of a heart
A needing so simple, how could love be so hard

Mama bird, bird, bird, where will you go
Mama bird, bird, hear you singing so low

Cryin’, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Singin’, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Cryin’, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Singin’, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

The young they grow, and take to the sky
Learn what they need to know, and go

Mama bird, bird, bird, your babes have all flown
But here in my garden, you still have a home

Singin’, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Cryin’, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Singin’, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Cryin’, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
