This Little Bird

Words & Music by Allison Crowe
As performed by Allison Crowe


This little bird

has a wander lust

Yes, I am going to see everything

I'm going to feel

I'm going to understand

something here

something good

 

In a land in a different ocean

same idea, but different sea

just to have you

lying next to me

 

Oh, I'll be dancing in the fire

You'll be laughing at the stars

We'll be shouting from the buildings

We'll be waving at the cars

that pass us by as we stand here

as time moves around us

we are steady in this moment

no, time doesn't seem to phase us at all

 

This little bird's

flying East

for the Winter

And you may think that

my navigational equipment

is out of order

but I know

exactly what I’m doing

and yes I know

exactly where I'm going

 

To a corner in the East

after travelling so far

just to be with you

just to be where you are

 

I'll be dancing in the fire

You'll be laughing at the stars

We'll be shouting from the buildings

We'll be waving at the cars

 

that pass us as we stand here

as time moves around us

we are steady in this moment

No, time doesn't seem to move us at all

from where we are

 

We are standing in this moment

no, time…

 

This little bird’s

gonna see

the good life has to offer

and how you can give your heart

and still feel free
