lyrics

little broken birds

before the time, i put my words on your table, i don’t recall what was said, but i’m sure it was cruel.
between you and i, i’m a sucker for your rainy nights, you remind me of when, i was young and stable.
and i want things back, just where they were, before those storms came and scattered us, like little broken birds.
I want things back, just where they were, before those hurricanes, they shattered my windows and blew off all my doors.
still enthused by what’s for me become common place. you don’t waste no words, still have that youthful haste. i pray you don’t change when time starts weighing in, you remind me of when, i had a very different face. and i want things back, just where they were, before those storms came and scattered us like little broken birds. just where they were, before those hurricanes shattered my windows and blew off all my doors.
