-- a bird's song --

-- ingrid michaelson --

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
