Songbird

Tired today, you think I’m tired today? Is it my eyes, how they drift down and sideways

Laughter, I hear your laughter. Darling, my mind’s so heavy that my ear drum’s harder

Smile again, if you could smile again. Maybe my lips, they could smile back and find a way

Longer, a little longer. Just give me five more minutes, cause I’m feeling somber, somber

 

When you look at me with those eyes Songbird, it’s enough for me tonight

It’s silent, in the middle of the night your singing’s quiet. Your harmony on mine

I’m always half a note away, and if you’re the same, I’d like to fine your tune

Remember when you told me that nobody wrote a song about you? I promise that I’ll write you something even if it’s out of tune

Remember when you told me that nobody wrote a song about you? I promise that I’ll write you something even if it’s out of

 

My way, if it’s out of my way. Baby, that’s fine, cause my road is looking dire today

Corner, I’m in your corner. If you get pushed back, baby, I’ma keep you forward

Right away, I’ll catch you right away, cause you deserve something better than a tidal wave

Thunder, I’ll get you thunder. I’ll catch some lightning in a jar if it can make you stronger, stronger

 

When you look at me with those eyes Songbird, it’s enough for me tonight

It’s silent, in the middle of the night your singing’s quiet. Your harmony on mine

I’m always half a note away, and if you’re the same, I’d like to fine your tune

Remember when you told me that nobody wrote a song about you? I promise that I’ll write you something even if it’s out of tune

Remember when you told me that nobody wrote a song about you? I promise that I’ll write you something even if it’s out of

 

My forever wandering mind, I adore just how your hair falls onto your shoulders past your eyes

I’ve fallen for your eyes. Darling, I’ll confess to you. Give me yours, I’ll give you mine

 

You. Remember when you told me that nobody wrote a song about you

I promise that I’ll write you something even if it’s out of

When you look at me with those eyes Songbird, it’s enough for me
