lyrics

The white paint peels and the knee high grassy fields
when my mother called,
she knew it was time for me to go home
where a tree and some birds hop away

My heart is not my friend
breaking bones when it sinks to the ground
then abandons me when its feeling just a little joy
as a tree and some birds stand and stare

I see the best in you
and when I'm strong I see the best in me too
we're knocking cities down, one by one
with you're broad shoulders and icicle crown
as a tree and some birds laugh and play

Oh these birds
they say to you and me and oh, a tree, it waits
and it says

Focus on anything but that which makes you sad
cleanse the thought of your heart so that you can be glad
so glad

The white paint peels, and the knee high grassy fields
when my mother called
she knew it was time for me to go home where a tree and some birds wait for me, for me

Oh these birds they say to you and me and oh, a tree, it waits
