Bird Song


Well I didn’t tell anyone but a bird flew by,
Saw what I’d done,
He set up a nest outside,
And he sang about what I’d become,
He sang so loud, he sang so clear,
I was afraid all the neighbours would hear,
So I invited him in just to reason with him,
I promised I wouldn’t do it again

But he sang louder and louder inside the house,
And now I couldn’t get him out,
So I trapped him under a cardboard box,
Stood on it to make it stop,
Picked up the bird and above the din,
Said that’s the last song you’ll ever sing,
Held him down, broke his neck,
Taught him a lesson he wouldn’t forget

But in my dreams began to creep,
That old familiar tweet tweet tweet

I opened my mouth to scream and shout,
I waved my arms and flapped about,
But I couldn’t scream and I couldn’t shout,
Couldn’t scream and I couldn’t shout,
I opened my mouth to scream and shout,
I waved my arms and flapped about,
But I couldn’t scream and I couldn’t shout,
The song was coming from my mouth

this is a really nice song by florence and the machine, in case you were interested by the great lyrics.
