lyrics

Oh, little bluebird
Won't you sing a little more?
A pretty tune I can't ignore?
Cause I've found I'm lost without you
Trapped in games of war

I revel in your sickness
And I drown you in wine
And while you weep, I insist
That everything is fine

And when the sunlight fades away
There's nothing left to keep the dark at bay
And as you cross my mind
I wish you'd rest, or stay confined
But you flit and flutter, you never stutter or stop to soak up time
No trace of any kind

I know the leaves have fallen
And that crunch on the ground hurts your ears
I know the winds are howling
And they smother the song you want me to hear

But won't you stay a little while?
I swear I'll make it worth your while
Just hunker down a few more miles
And crack a smile, little bluebird
Crack a smile
