  • Time is my friend
    Till it ain't, and runs out
    And that is all
    That I have, till it's gone

    Try to build a home, bones of birds
    Singing in the cold and fall to earth

    Hey sometimes she won't cry
    When the smallest one is trapped
    Too weak to survive
    Probably maybe

    Tried to look out
    Through a hole, in the vague
    Circling above
    Looking down, bird of prey

    Try to build a home, bones of birds
    Singing in the cold and fall to earth

    Hey sometimes she won't cry
    When the smallest one is trapped
    Too weak to survive
    Too weak to survive
    Too weak to survive
    Probably maybe

    Try to build a home, bones of birds
    Singing in the cold and fall to earth

    Hey sometimes she won't cry
    When the smallest one is trapped
    Too weak to survive Probably
    Hey sometimes she won't cry
    When the smallest one is trapped
    Too weak to survive
    Too weak to survive
    Too weak to survive
