lyrics

Oh sweet sorrow
My heart longs for you
For your sting is harsh but your burdens are few
You’ve warned my soul
Time and time again
I don’t know why I let you go then

I caught a glimpse
And I stumbled in its wake
Closing my eyes to consequence and change
Hope for all time
It’s always the same
We all know the trouble still remains

I am but a bird on a string
Arms out stretched as the walls cave in
So take these thoughts I’d rather not mourn
And I will fly away off into the dawn

Where are my words?
Where are my words?
I’ve left them on the lips of angels high and heard
So that they might whisper
Something sweet to God
That he might have mercy
On me and my heart

I am but a bird on a string
Delivering a song to the one without wings
So take these thoughts I’d rather not mourn
And I will fly away off into the dawn

I will surrender
Old love like new
Daylight brings slumber
It never brought me you
My heart now sleeps
You’ve opened up my eyes
I’ll remember you for the rest of my life
I’ll remember you for the rest of my life
