Sorrow Be The Bird

A songbird lit down upon my window
In the evening dusk, her breast all aglow
Painted the color of heartbreak
Who am I to judge? 
If sorrow be the bird, then the wind is love

I've had my wings broken a time or two
Doesn't mean that I won't try to fly with you
A breeze is blowing through the pines
Well maybe I can trust
That sorrow be the bird and the wind is love

A songbird, she'll forget how to sing
Sittin' too long, yearning for the wind
She's gotta breathe in
Feel it under wing

Maybe we would soar so high
Maybe the songbird on the branches of my heart
She wouldn't sing so sadly
I'll feel it in my blood
That sorrow be the bird and the wind is love
Sorrow be the bird and the wind is love
Sorrow be the bird and the wind is love
