lyrics

The birds sing so softly, while the wind, it roars along
Till they find a field where they feel they do belong
Like the birds and the wind I have been searching
But like the worms I ain’t too smart
Always wait for rain and get eaten up before I’ve moved too far

Oh, what good is a metaphor for
When you’re waltzing in a three?
I’ll say it plain and simple
Won’t try to hide behind no simile
I’m lonely
Lonely
Again

Breathing in breathing out watching it all burn down
Both the good and the bad turning to ashes on the ground
When it all collapses it’s time to walk away
Breathing in breathing out it can all be so easy

Well, I’ve been trying to keep my head up
You can’t keep a good man down
But I’ve been feeling low might try my luck in another town
Cause see the rain doesn’t seem so bad when you’re already soaking
And water won’t help much if it’s the reason that you’re choking

Oh but what good is a metaphor for
When you’re waltzing in a three?
I’ll say it plain and simple
Won’t try to hide behind no hyperbole
I’m lonely
Lonely
Again

Breathing in breathing out watching it all burn down
Both the good and the bad turning to ashes on the ground
When it all collapses it’s time to walk away
Breathing in breathing out it can all be so easy
It can all be so easy

There’s a smile on my face as I watch it all fall through
You see it always felt like I had something to prove
When what if all I am that’s all I’m ever gonna be
There’s a smile on my face that’s trying its best to believe
That it can all be so easy

But do the birds fly free and fearlessly?
Or is the wind just dragging them along
