Some say there’s noise and some say there’s sound.
Some know all the places I’ve found.
But I’m the only one who can look up and see
All the birds flying at the speed of sound.
Some things I find so hard to believe
Some are simple puzzles, puzzling a simple man
Yet birds fly from the underground
If you could see it then you’d understand.
I see those lights igniting my bones
Lights guiding and telling me I’m not alone
I sing a song of love that’s all I know
It’s a message that I’ve got to get home.
The long and dark December
Has brought this soul full of white snow
From a rooftop I ask if you love me
Fingertips wonder if you’ll let me know?
But love says to come over and be patient
To never worry about a thing
Reminding me I simply got lost
Walking up to the that strawberry swing
Cause in the end I have to remember
We might find ourselves at midnight lying awake
Trying to drown out the noises
Trying to dream of making our escape.
Dreams of the morning seem to come
They feel like a serenade of sound
We awake with this delirious belief
That our feet won’t ever touch the ground
But life goes on and gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every single tear is a waterfall
The stormy night only brings closed eyes.
But tonight it all has to begin again.
So whatever you do, don’t let go girl
Through chaos as it swirls
It’s just us against the world
You could’ve been a princess, I’d be a king
You could’ve had a castle, and worn a ring
But no, you let me go
Up in flames we have slowly gone
And those birds, they sing at break of day
“Start again” I hear them say
A spark in a sea of gray
God knows it’s so hard to just walk away
So tell me you love me
If you don’t then go ahead and lie on
Please tell me you love me
Promise you’ll always leave a light on
I always look up at the sky
I always pray before the dawn
Those birds sometimes arrive
Next you know they’re gone
So fly on, ride through
Maybe one day I’ll fly next to you
Fly on, ride through
Maybe one day I can fly with you
