all the birds on the porch that stay
have all but one begun to fly away
the fireflies said their last goodbyes
but one light still remains
hey boy, no matter what you do
your heart is sinking deeper in blue
if all your dreams no one can see
then you can't share them with me

i watched it slip away,
some other day,
on the wings that hold,
a violent cold

you watched it slip away
but you're to blame
i'm the wings that hold
a violent cold

now in spring as the world turns green
sing a song a lonely bird would sing
how you faced the cold as the winter crept
and you swear you never wept
hey boy when it all turned grey
who was there and who went away?
if you fly alone then at least you're free
to share your dreams with me
