lyrics

YOU WERE A BIRD

You were a bird
And you had to fly
With or without me
For more than a little while

You were a train
Who fell off the track
No matter how hard I pushed
I couldn't put you back

And now, down and out,
I see you in my dreams
Bringing me safety, solace,
And misery

And I
Wonder why
It was your destiny
To leave me behind
But I have to remind
You couldn't replicate truth
You found in my eyes
In my eyes
In my eyes
In my eyes
In my...

'Cause you were a bird
And you had to fly
With or without me
For more than a little while

You were a train
Who fell off the track
No matter how hard I pushed
I couldn't put you back

And now, down and out,
I see you in my dreams
Bringing me safety, solace,
And misery

And I wonder why
You couldn't
Replicate truth you found
In my eyes
But I have to remind
It was your destiny
To leave me behind
Leave me behind
Leave me behind
Leave me behind
Leave me...

'Cause you were a bird
And you had to fly
With or without me
For more than a little while

You were a train
Who fell off the track
No matter how hard I pushed
I couldn't put you back
No matter how hard I pushed
I couldn't put you back
