I was waken late the other night
There was a bird trapped in my heart
I tried to open up and let it out
Before it tore my chest apart

I tossed and turned, I prayed for it to stop
I scratched my face an' tore my sheets
But I was way too late, my heart was gone
And in its place these bird wings beat

And I was waken from a day to day dream
There was a bird trapped in my mind
I tried to open up and let it out
But there was no use in tryin'

And where I once had a head full of thoughts
Of happiness and daily things
There is only strange darkness now
And in the darkness this bird sings

I'm comin' down the mountain
I've been comin' for some time
I'm comin' down the mountain
And this whole dark valley is mine

Oh Ballerina, where have you gone
I've been dreamin' of you
Honey, where have you gone

Oh Ballerina, where have you gone
I've been dreamin' of you
Since the day you were born, yeah

Oh my, yeah
