lyrics

Sometimes I even embarrass myself,
dragging ancient things down from that shelf
and I hardly remember who I used to be
so why would I care about what you think of me
the cardinal lands and drops a worm into the nest
Bright and beautiful shines his chest

I was a boy when you disappeared
despite the airs that you never cleared
little bird, won't let go, long after it's flown
assume I knew, the type of wings she'd grown
I never knew better than the costume you wore
while we traded hits on the shore
the cardinal lands and drops a worm into the nest
Bright and beautiful shines his chest

crooked pinkies, crooked smiles, crooked paths to walk
and now we've all circled back to a tiny nest to talk

letters come back, all addressed to you
a winter prophetic, to the desert she flew
What's stronger, what we want or what we expect each other to flaunt
The shadow we cast in youth will always haunt
song delayed, after so many years,
the cactus cried its frozen tears
the cardinal lands and drops a worm into the nest
Bright and beautiful shines his chest

After all this time I should have known
I can't be trusted to free this bird alone
