​Turtle and the Flightless Bird

This song is by Devin Davis and appears on the album Lonely People of the World, Unite! (2005).

Awake through the sound of the sad city sleeping
I turned around to find out who was speaking
But there was no one there
After a while, I arrived at a pile of feathers
Crying in all capital letters
With a big white sling on her wing
And two geysers where her eyes were

"We may not live up in the sky
Where the air gets scared when the planes go by
But you can hop up on my shell
When we crawl across the highway"

Yeah, we were two rocks when you strike them together
I told her that I would like nothing better
Yeah, nothing in the world than to just lie around
'Neath the blackberry towers
We could keep talking on and on for hours
About how the wind goes "doo-doo-doo-to-doo"

We may not live up in the sky
Where the air gets scared when the planes go by
But you can hop up on my shell
When we crawl across the highway
'Cause we might get flattened today
But at least we lived here long enough to say
"Hey hey, you're the one for me"

The night you gave that kiss to me
I cracked the ancient mystery
And on the day that you ran away
I touched the tail of the bumblebee
Darlin' girl, no it's just not right
Drinking ourselves to sleep at night
Won't you ever come back to me?
I haven't got what it takes to wait and see

"We may not live up in the sky
Where the air gets scared when the planes go by
But you can hop up on my shell
When we crawl across the highway"

"We may not live up in the sky
Where the air gets scared when the planes go by
But you can hop up on my shell
When we crawl across the highway"
"We may not live up in the sky
Where the air gets scared when the planes go by
But you can hop up on my shell
When we crawl across the highway"
