Dead Bird

On a cold desolate night
Across a dark and vacant sky
See nothing that I desire
And my poor mind withers
See the cracks in the pavement stare
I dream only in black and white

I want to leave the city
See the silent willows burn
I’d give all my days in exchange for a hummingbird’s life
Steal the wings of a dead bird
Steal the wings of a dead bird
Stole the wing of a dead bird

What a sight for sore eyes

You appear all light and I’m scared you’ll fall
And me and my poor mind
You come to me and you’re all light
Suddenly all my fears fly

So here’s that open highway
Coming up all clear and bright
There’s a will and there’s a reason now
Flowers come up through the cracks
They don’t know why

And the daylight sings
And the garbage truck man
And the sound of a morning ending
Was the sound of a mourning ending

I want to leave the city
See the silent willows burn
I’d give all my days in exchange for a hummingbird’s life
Steal the wings of a dead bird

What a sight for sore eyes
