Lisa Loeb – Birds Lyrics

It’s like hitting myself in the face. And a sea fly lands on the edge of your footprint,
I’m closer to things on the ground. And most of this room is empty,
And the furniture that is left is rearranged. You sung through all of my sorrows,
The closest that I could have found. We are birds we
Ran from the water. We fly. The lights set the room a glow. They grow in a garden or a wild field. Oh, you know. They were always there blooming and spreading. And birds we take off
Over the ocean. We fly. LISA LOEBBirds Lyrics
We are birds we
Ran from the water. Now I have floated down
From the top of my tears, and
I’m closer to things on the ground. There were flowers like lace
All covering paths, like the ones leading up to your door. They’re bright and their yellow. ‘and I can’t play you my old songs,’ you said,
‘my hand writing has changed.’
The sofas are worn in,
And the foot stools are gone. And taking someone for granted sometimes,
One voice in is more than a sound. And we fly. We fly in flock sometimes,
Fly in a v. Well how come I have never seen them before? But we can fly solo,
I can tell you no. Now I’m closer to things on the ground. And birds we take off
Over the ocean.
