​Birds On A Wire

This song is by Backseat Goodbye and appears on the album Blue Moon, Yellow Eyes (2006).

Holding hands with tomorrow
I forgot about yesterday
A sky made of yellow
And gravel made of grey
Holding hands with tomorrow
I forgot about yesterday
Trading secrets with the day
I forgot about the night
You never know what to say
I always say I'm all right, what a lie
Oh what a lie
Trading secrets with the day
I forgot about the night
I sang a song to the moon
In return it gave me light
I sang a song to you
Your face shined so bright
I sang a song to the moon
In return it gave me light
I gave waves to the water
It replied with a brilliant blue
Each year seems shorter and shorter
I told you a secret, you said you knew
I gave waves to the water
It replied with blue
I smiled at the sky
It thanked me with the wind
Said you "like it when I cry"
So I did it again and again
I smiled at the sky
It thanked me with the wind
I wrote a song for the trees, when I sang it for them
They sang back to me
Not with words, but with their leaves
It was amazing and I wish you could see
The way you look at me
'Cause it makes me happy to breathe
I wrote a song for the trees
They sang back to me
I waved at some birds
On a wire by a home
I save all your words
But you'll never know
How they give me life
How you give me life
I waved at some birds
On a wire by a home
Whispered some words to some rocks
Like in the books that you bought
The words were small, but had so much meaning
And I'm not sure where you've gone, but I know that I miss you a lot
Like the empty heart-shaped frame that you keep on a shelf
I hope for the day you'll see I need, your hands and time and I just can't help
But to imagine our legs tangled like your hair
When the breeze gets the best of it, and you say you don't care
But I know that it kills you knowing you'll never know
Why you cry when the sun sleeps at night
You say you'll sit up forever to find out, well if that's so
I'd keep you company, if you wouldn't mind
You say chad, you're dreams are silly, see you're just a boy
And there's only so much you can do to keep them young like you
"Well I'm not one to make a promise, if a promise I can't keep,
But I sure as hell will, if I have to...
'Cause see if there's one thing I know
It's that I've only got so long
To do as I please, in this world so small.and I can't get nothing right, if I'm scared of being wrong
