lyrics

LOVE & BIRDS
In the ‘places I want to go’ file, Everglades ’95,
we check off your list a blood orange sunset on our first try
and watch the pink birds fly, fly through the citrus sky
I need you, need your words.
I want love, love and birds.
Once an avocet always one, or some kind of elegant bird
One part eagle, one urban hen in a Feminine Mystique world,
flags all unfurled, in the board room you feel a girl
I need you, need your words.
I want love, love and birds.
You build your nest with what you find,
first love never far behind.
Vision sharp the marsh will spin,
You zip our coats into our chins
It wasn’t what you planned. Say you understand.
On your lovers’ birthday a decade now has passed since you’ve flown
We roll down the window Sunday driving so you’re not alone
like we could call you on a phone, let the radio sing us home.
I need you, need your words.
I want love, love and birds.
