i saw a bird fly away – dar williams lyrics

Loading...

i asked the habitual partygoer
just how high she thought she’d get,
and i asked the ethereal girls
if they were floating yet

and so i asked the light of the day,
what’s this rush for heaven,
and i saw a bird fly away,
and i could not ask again.

the tabloid-tainted actress knows
the myth of higher ground.
the thing she got from playing a nun
she got from sleeping around.

and so i asked the light of the day,
what’s this rush for heaven,
and i saw a bird fly away,
and i could not ask again.

he fell in the mud and
he became enlightened
i wonder who’s laughin’ now

and i’ve been running uphill,
panting, punching at the air,
fighting what’s been pushing me down,
like i can see it there.

and so i asked the light of the day,
what’s this rush for heaven,
and i saw a bird fly away,
and i could not ask again.

and i saw all this climbing, climbing,
just as far from heaven,
and i saw a bird fly away,
and i started climbing again.

who’s laughing now
he fell in the mud and
he became enlightened,
i wonder… who’s laughing now
