lyrics

stained glass window, holy water
cold hands on the minister's daughter
broken bones and a broken promise
why are you so alone?
why are you all alone?

summer's fever, winter's rain
sleeping through a hurricane
bare skin and shivering
you're not brave, let it go
you're not brave, let me go

songbird, songbird
sing me to sleep
everyone will stray, we're all wolves among the sheep
songbird, songbird
don't leave me here alone
i've been waiting for you all night and i don't want to go

you burned me faster than i burned my bridges
and i lost you in the ashes
cloudy eyes and baby bird bones
you get so high when you're sad
and you never come down

songbird, songbird
sing me to sleep
everyone will stray, we're all wolves among the sheep
songbird, songbird
don't leave me here alone
i've been waiting for you all night and i don't want to go
