Lisa Loeb – Birds Lyrics

LISA LOEBBirds Lyrics
We are birds we
Ran from the water. Well how come I have never seen them before? And a sea fly lands on the edge of your footprint,
I’m closer to things on the ground. We fly. And birds we take off
Over the ocean. We fly. Oh, you know. And most of this room is empty,
And the furniture that is left is rearranged. We fly in flock sometimes,
Fly in a v. But we can fly solo,
I can tell you no. You sung through all of my sorrows,
The closest that I could have found. And we fly. They grow in a garden or a wild field. They’re bright and their yellow. There were flowers like lace
All covering paths, like the ones leading up to your door. The lights set the room a glow. And birds we take off
Over the ocean. And taking someone for granted sometimes,
One voice in is more than a sound. ‘and I can’t play you my old songs,’ you said,
‘my hand writing has changed.’
The sofas are worn in,
And the foot stools are gone. We are birds we
Ran from the water. It’s like hitting myself in the face. They were always there blooming and spreading. Now I’m closer to things on the ground. Now I have floated down
From the top of my tears, and
I’m closer to things on the ground.
