lyrics

I see that you’re talking
but I don’t hear words
just a sort of humming
like a thousand tiny birds
I hear them when you’re lying
you’re so bad at lying
maybe someday they’ll fly away
one day when we’re both dying

you tell me you hit bottom
you tell me it’s all clear now
you tell me you’re so sorry
and you keep tellin’ me how
you’ve taken me for granted
and you’ve been so ungrateful
and that you hope I know you love me
‘cause you have been so hateful
the words you say are pretty
nice cadence and intonation
but your words and your actions
have zero correlation
I tell you, “that took a lot to say”
and “thanks for being so open”
but all your empty promises
with quantity get less potent

so I’ll listen to your birdsong
like pulling teeth or splinters
and maybe next time your heart is cold
they’ll migrate for the winter

so I’ll listen to your birdsong
like pulling teeth or splinters
and maybe next time your heart is cold
they’ll migrate for the winter
