mockingbird lyrics – chase coy

summer arrived on the back of a mockingbird.
it sang a sweet melody, but couldn’t seem to find the right words.
i don’t know if you’ve heard, but it’s all over town,
yeah they’re buzzing about it now.

i was singing alone when the mockingbird came to me,
perched on my windowsill, and hummed along quietly.
but before long she was singing along, and she said, yeah she said:

“i’ve been waiting so long for these words to come out,
it’s practically all i’ve been thinking about.
so thank you for finding the words i couldn’t find on my own,
now i’m not alone.”

autumn was on it’s way and summer was on it’s way out;
the mockingbird told me: “i change with the seasons,”
and that she was leaving town in a few days now.

we said our goodbyes, and i secretly wished for more time,
but the seasons are merciless.
for a while we both stood in silence
until she said:

“i’ve been waiting so long for these words to come out,
it’s practically all i’ve been thinking about.
so thank you for finding the words i couldn’t find on my own,
now i’m not alone.”
