ben folds – birds lyrics

Loading...

words and music by roddy frame

“hey baby, baby bring your love to me”
repeats the radio relentlessly
all day i dream a dream where feelings flee
in free formation.
the sweetest sound reflects in saddened eyes
defies description and identifies
the heart that hungers for the sudden skies
the souls migration.

chorus:
how sweet to fly
to touch the sky
to feel in the flow
like the one who glides there.
i feel we flew
we never knew
but to know is to go
when your heart resides there.

i take a winter coat and walk the square
the people gather and the birds they scare
concrete and clay conspire to cage me there
among the lost boys.
down in the streets i see the trees grow bare
broken and battered in the thinning air
the birds are scattered and my footsteps there
i long for lost joy.

chorus
