BIRD (So you say your bird can sing)

Lyrics

So you say – your bird can sing
Well I never heard one that didn’t
But flying is an entirely different thing
When there’s a cage wrapped around your wings

It’s a tragedy to bear – why do we do this to ourselves?
Money can get you there
But will it buy your freedom?

We look so close to try and understand
While the moment slips away
It’s like trying to catch a bird that’s already flown
When the love you need is in your heart

It’s a tragedy to bear – why do we do this to ourselves?
Denial will quell your despair
But will you know the reason?

Walking down the same old road
You think we would have learned by now
Albert Einstein he said it best
Expecting something different is not very sound

It’s a tragedy to bear – why do we do this to ourselves?

Denial will quell your despair
And money will get you there
But will it buy your freedom?

So you say that your bird can sing it’s a very incredible bird
So you say that your bird can sing it’s a very amazing bird
So you say that your bird can sing it’s a spectacular bird
Now you say that your bird can sing it’s a incredible bird

Money can get you there
Money can get you there
But will it buy your freedom?

So you say – your bird can sing
Well I never heard one that didn’t
But flying is an entirely different thing
When there’s a cage wrapped around your wings

Seasonal/month appropriate song: ‘December’

I wrote this song a few years ago about as you might have guessed – December. I tried to capture the melancholy feeling of the Holiday Season through two aging lovers who have seen both the good and the bad and are now coming to terms with what lies ahead in their future. Hope you enjoy!

December – lyrics

Her light is on but does she feel?
Does she think she will never grow old?
I can’t remember the last deal that was ever made in the cold
December is always dark and the stars are seldom sold
They just hang there on display – no love for the one’s
Who stayed

Dreamers I call out your name
If I cut you will you bleed the same?
The young they live on their dreams
But the old live by their truths

Come down – come down my love
The hour is getting late

There’s a sunset on Christmas Eve
Orange and burning just like in your dream
When you awoke you were old
And you spread your wings and smiled
You said I’m just like the wind
I’m going to hold-on to the air

I jumped with a grin
And took hold of your hand
I said…

Come down – come down my love
The hour is getting late

Come down – come down my love
It’s Christmas Day
