Lovebird

Album: Glassheart (2012)
  • I will lay down next to you
    Stay in bed all afternoon
    We were birds of a feather
    We were always together
    And I never will forget
    All the little things you said
    And that beautiful summer
    You used to call me your love bird.

    But the time went on
    The wind has blown
    And I've grown
    And I started a feeling
    And my wings have been broken

    And I can't believe that I would ever want to be set free
    But I just can't stay

    So your lovebird's flying away
    Your lovebird's flying away
    'Cause my heart's been stuck in a cage
    Gotta sing my song so pretty, dum dum diddy
    And I miss you everyday
    But there's nothing left to say
    Gotta sing my song so pretty, dum dum diddy

    I want the world at my feet
    Even if it's bittersweet
    I wanna stand on my own and
    Hold my heart in my own hands
    'Cause I've begun to see
    That you and me are different breeds
    So I gotta believe in,
    Gotta get back to grieving

    And I can't believe that I would ever want to be set free
    But I just can't stay

    So your lovebird's flying away
    Your lovebird's flying away
    'Cause my heart's been stuck in a cage
    Gotta sing my song so pretty, dum dum diddy
    And I miss you everyday
    But there's nothing left to say
    Gotta sing my song so pretty, dum dum diddy

    And you'll always be a part of me, you made me who I am
    But I gotta say, I'm not afraid to test my wing span
    'Cause they say if you love something let it go, let it go, let it go
    Open up the gate, 'cause your lovebird's flying away

    Your lovebird's flying away
    'Cause my heart's been stuck in a cage
    Gotta sing my song so pretty, dum dum diddy
    And I miss you everyday
    But there's nothing left to say
    Gotta sing my song so pretty, dum dum diddy Writer/s: JOSHUA COLEMAN, LUKASZ GOTTWALD, BONNIE LEIGH MCKEE
