Songbird

When I would play my song
You used to sing along.
I always seem to forget
How fragile are the very strong.
I’m sorry I can’t steal you
I’m sorry I can’t stay
So I put band-aids on your knees
And watch you fly away

I’m sending you away tonight
I’ll put you on a bird’s strong wing
I’m saving you the best way I know how
I hope again one day to hear you sing

You know we’re not so far away
Get on a boat, get on a train
And if you ever think you’re drowning
I’ll try to slow the rain
In two years or so
Drop me a line
Write me a letter
I hope to find you’re doing better, better than today, better everyday

I’m sending you away tonight
I’ll put you on a bird’s strong wing
I’m saving you the best way I know how
I hope again one day to hear you sing
I’m saving you the only way that I know how
I hope again one day to hear you sing
I hope again one day to see you bring your smile back around again

Ingrid Michaelson is love.
