lyrics

six months is far too long to sleep, though peacefully
little bird
i ran to check on every breath, and though the rise and fall had stopped
and almost broke those hollow bones
i felt you keening
smoke every shadow from your head, smash ‘em down
little bird
i know that you prefer the beast, but even warriors can sing
and fill the morning
little bird
and face the morning
when the sky did fall on you, you just lived through it
cause we both know, you passed right through it, into it
beneath the boughs, no warming sun
above, the lift up
let not the monsters dance their way across your eyes
through your head
out from beneath your furrowed brow
under the shelter of your frown
are sirens screaming little words
you know their meaning
if the sky did fall on you, you would live through it
cause we both know you’d pass right through it, into it
the forest floor you’ve warmed enough
above, the lift up
pick yourself up now from the ground, from the floor
little bird
little bird, there is a word to help you out from underneath
it is a warning, little bird
it is a warning

(ok, you’re hiding away
but you’re hiding away from yourself
ok, little bird.
ok, little bird
there is a word to help you out from underneath
it is a warning
little bird
it is a warning)
