lyrics

Birdy you've been tripping into me.
No flight when losing speed.
Your dropping feathers in your seat.
Vivid worry.
The recollection's been drawn
Reflections were wrong
The affection's been gone in this tone

I've been reading our elegy
Gutter's spillin at the seams
The songs you sing rival symphonies
But I'm not stung by your beak.
The direction is done
Imperfections sum
The affection's been gone in this tone.

It's so silly,
How static you cling to fate.
Believing stars always spelled our names
It's unlikely,
That I'd ever feel the same.
Now I'm pulling the plug on our cosmic drain

Where's my love?
Where's our love?
Where's my love?

I'm not feeling us today
Too much wind not enough sway
I feel I'm dying here
My soul is crying here

I'm not feeling us today
Too much breath no way to say
My soul is dying here
No more flying there

My veins pulse hard
Slows down beating softer.
And I still love you.
I'll always love you.
