Hey Little Bird (Don't You Fly Away)

from by Chris Breault

/

lyrics

Hey little bird don’t you fly away
I could use your song to brighten my day
See my own little bird flew yesterday
Said a whole lot by having nothing to say

So, let the clouds roll in and block the sun
I don’t want today to be a beautiful one
Falling on your sword is never that much fun
But the sweetest love is hard won

Well, I promised her a lot and I swear that’s what she got
But she took it all and threw it right away
I gave it everything I had but still she seemed so sad
She had a way about her but I loved her anyway

Hey little bird what do you say?
Can you sing me a song from yesterday?
When every little thing was going my way
But that was all then and now it’s today

‘Cause I’m a son-of-a-bitch if there ever was one
Well, I’d be the bitch if I wasn’t the son
I think she loved me but I was no one
I could have been the moon I could have been the sun

Well, I promised her a lot and I swear that’s what she got
But when I would shine she never happened to look my way
I gave her everything I had but that just made her mad
She had a way about her but I loved her anyway

The night was creeping up when I got the call
It was from her daddy at the police hall
He said, “She didn’t just leave you, she left us all”
“We found her hanging by the cellar wall”

I gave it all I got and I swear that was a lot
She said it all by having nothing more to say
The funny thing is, the thing that drew me in
She had a way about her but I loved her anyway

She had a way about her but I loved her anyway
