Birds

lyrics

When I awake in the morning
I hear the birds singing, "What a time
to look alive" as the sunlight
Shines inside my unopened eyes
When I rise up from my twin size
Dig through that closet for something nice
A little sigh then it's all alright
And when it's time I depart

Ahhhhh

But when I step into that old blue four door
I know, I know
I know tomorrow will be just the same as that which came before
Oh my lord!

When I head out on the highway
I make close calls but I claim my lane
And when it's right I go right on my way
I do some things and I bring home some pay
When I was making a living
A was just waiting for what a time
To look alive but I seem to've died
In the process of waiting for life

Ahhhhh

But as a lay down in my twin size graveside
I hope, I hope
I hope the morning will bring just the thing I couldn't see at night
Not just light!

Ahhhhh

It goes on and on
And the work it's never done
It's not like I forgot that, no
It goes on and on
It's on and on and on
It goes on and on and on
It's on and on and on
It goes on and on and on
It's on and on and on
And on and on and on
