Messenger Bird's Song Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

The kitchen is cold
But the coffee is warm
And the suns coming up
The day has just begun
And your already bored

Bored of cheering me up
Bored of calming me down
Bored of drying my eyes
But there once was a time
When you were the one

You were the blue of the sky
You came after the storm
You were the switch on the wall
In the dark of the hall
I'm still fumbling for

'Cause I'm lost in the black
I don't know where I am
And arms strecthed out in front
And I'm calling your name
Just as loud as I can

And I know there's words that we will never speak
And the questions can't be answered easily
But I wanted to be easy so
Nod your head if the plans have changed
Shake it, love, if they stayed the same
Smile at me and I will stay
Start to cry and I'll go away
Just please don't leave me guessing

So you made me come
Then you sent me away
Like a messenger bird
So, I circled the earth
Blown away in the wind

But I always returned
With some new little song
Some sad story to tell
Of a brief love affair
With a girl I compared to you and she failed

You said you don't want me to beg
Then you said get down on your knees
'Cause you knew that I would
If I do any good
Satisfying your needs

And I know all about those things we cannot speak
And just so you know, well, they don't bother me
So you don't have to be worried
Just nod your head if the plans have changed
Shake it, love, if they stayed the same
Smile at me and I will stay
Start to cry and I'll go away
Just please don't keep me waiting

Oh, just nod your head if your mind's been changed
Shake it, love, if some hope remains
Just say the word and of course I'll stay
Roll your eyes and I'll go away
Just please don't leave me guessing
Just please don't keep me waiting
