Lyrics

She is a song bird, high in a tree

her feathers are gilded and her song is sweet

inside her chest, behind her black eyes

a thousand heartbeats a minute, and a thousand ideas

(chorus)

Sun, sunshine or rain she will sing her refrain

she's a song bird

 

She sings where she has to, she eats what she finds

eyes like weather assault her, no safe home in her mind

doesn't matter who listens, she will sing just the same

for the gift she was given is heavy on her light frame

(chorus)

Sun, sunshine or rain she will sing her refrain

she's a song bird
