​This Bird

This song is by Solange and appears on the album Sol-Angel And The Hadley St. Dreams (2008).

Once in a time
Where the girls feel like girls
And the world is painted
Cotton candy
Where the sweet lemonade
Of mcgregor street
Was the best the damn thing of the summer breeze
Your dad drives a foreign car
And your mama looks like a beauty queen
Now the sour bitter days
Of a colorless place
Seems to light up my nights somehow
And the music I play must be loud, loud, loud, loud, loud as can be
So I don't have to hear myself think
So I don't have to wake up from this dream
I don't wanna sing no single mama blues
I'm not singin' look at me I've been abused
O I'm honestly lost girl starin' at you
So maybe ill put on my high heel shoes
And soar the night away
And soar the night away
But whatever I do

I'm not gonna slow this bird down
I don't wanna look life in the eye
I'm not gonna fall face first in the spiral called a life
I'm not in denial
I'm not suicidal
Not an alcoholic
I'm not out here hoin' (e.g whoring)
So just shut the fuck up
This birds not slowing down
Once in a while
When the sun does its job
Lets the clouds take a nice day off
I can breeze through the day

And just run through night
Here injisted of those big blue eyes
Is this is life might run
On the evening of fourth July
So I got reason to fly

I'm not gonna slow this bird down
I don't wanna look life in the eye
I don't wanna fall face first in the spiral called a life
I'm not in denial
I'm not suicidal
Not an alcoholic
I'm not out here hoin'(e.g whoring)
So just shut the fuck up
This birds not slowing down

Slowing dowwwwnnn
Slowing downnnnn
Slowing dowwwnnnn

It's not over yet
The song isn't over yet
Ain't no birds
Gonna slow me down
Imma keep on rollin'
And ain't no birds gonna slow me down
Keep on rollin'
And ain't no birds
Gonna slow me down
Imma keep on rollin'
And ain't no birds gonna slow me down
