Fly away little bird
Any place in this open mouth world
Begs to be fed like a bed that beckons you
But you won't rest

Everyone's got a need to go
Most of us stick with our row to hoe
But not you, you're the black crow
With a straight line and no time

For the birds of prey who wreck your nest
Twice your size, steal your best
They set you on this course of your collision

I am a stop along your way
I am the words you'll never say
I crossed the great beyond of fear
Opened my eyes and saw us there
What a view, you went there too

Fly away little bird
Find the song in you that no one's heard
Strengthen your wings as you sing your solo flight
Through this short life

Everyone's got a deep regret
We try to ground ourselves to forget
But your race to the end is neck and neck
You love them, you love them not

The birds of prey who wreck your nest
Twice your size steal your best
They set you on this course of your collision

I am a stop along your way
I am the words you'll never say
I crossed the great beyond of fear
Opened my eyes and saw us there
What a view and you went there too

But all along your chosen path are
Window panes and sheets of glass
That you won't see, you fly too fast
One day it will be over

Fly away little bird
The saddest song I ever heard
Was the one that I wrote you in my heart
That never made it to the world
