this little bird lyrics – allison crowe

this little bird

words music by allison crowe
as performed by allison crowe

this little bird
has a wander l*st
yes, i am going to see everything
i’m going to feel
i’m going to understand
something here
something good

in a land in a different ocean
same idea, but different sea
just to have you
lying next to me

oh, i’ll be dancing in the fire
you’ll be laughing at the stars
we’ll be shouting from the buildings
we’ll be waving at the cars
that p*ss us by as we stand here
as time moves around us
we are steady in this moment
no, time doesn’t seem to phase us at all

this little bird’s
flying east
for the winter
and you may think that
my navigational equipment
is out of order
but i know
exactly what i’m doing
and yes i know
exactly where i’m going

to a corner in the east
after travelling so far
just to be with you
just to be where you are

i’ll be dancing in the fire
you’ll be laughing at the stars
we’ll be shouting from the buildings
we’ll be waving at the cars

that p*ss us as we stand here
as time moves around us
we are steady in this moment
no, time doesn’t seem to move us at all
from where we are

we are standing in this moment
no, time…

this little bird’s
gonna see
the good life has to offer
and how you can give your heart
and still feel free
