Florence + The Machine
Bird Song

Well I didn't tell anyone
But a bird flew by
Saw what I done
He set up a nest outside
And he sang about what I've become
He sang so loud
Sang so clear
I was afraid all the neighbors would hear
So I invited him in just to reason with him
I promised I wouldn't do it again

But he sang louder and louder inside the house
And I couldn't get him out
So I trapped him under a cardboard box
Stood on it to make it stop
Picked up the bird and above the dim
I sagte "That's the last song you'll ever sing"
Held him down broke his neck
Taught him a lesson he wouildn't forget

Then in my dreams began to creep
That old familiar
"Tweet, Tweet, Tweet"

I opened my mouth to scream and shout
I waved my arms and flapped about
But I couldn't scream and I couldn't shout
I couldn't scream and I couldn't shout
I waved my arms to scream and shout
Waved my arms and flapped about
But I couldn't scream and I couldn't shout

The song was coming from my mouth
From my mouth (x14)
