Lyrics:
"My baby left me three years ago, You know how that is,
With her big brown eyes
And umbrella smile

Little things like that are why I can't forget her face
I went outside to have a thought
went for a walk in the park.

I saw two bluebirds sitting up high
On the branches, chirping down at me.
I thought I heard one of them saying,

"What a poor man down there."
Or "If he saw life the way we do,
He wouldn't be such a downer."

But they were birds.
So maybe they were saying,
"Look at that idiot."
Or "He smells like piss."

I just don't know


We watched the birds fly by
As they soared up into the sky
You told me how you wish you could learn to fly

And join them in their ecstasy
Forever singing harmonies
To all the people walking by

And if they locked you in a cage
You would try to escape
Fly out the window to the great unknown

You'd soar up into the sky
Float above the country side
See how far you could go
But I guess you'll never know


It's the little things that matter
It's the little things that change
But the world around me seems to stay the same

Yeah I could be a scientist
I'm really not that dumb
But I'll never know how flowers turn their faces to the sun

Why do the leaves turn red?
And fall to the ground
And why can't the past be found

And why is life so shrouded in mystery
God can't you open up a window?
can't you throw me a key

But I'll never know
Because I never was told
Why I'm too scared to leave
Why I want to go home.
I want to go home."

Lyrics are a little... odd? Mostly the first half I would say is just a bit strange and kind of odd to me, and I don't mean to dis you man, they are your lyrics and are definitely going to ring differently with you, but I really thought the 2nd half of the song(after "I don't know") really flowed pretty well and fit the music well also.

I enjoyed this tune BBT. It was really relaxing and I think the lyrics were some of the best lyrics you have put out there, keep it man!

Thanks btimm, means alot!

I can easily see how the lyrics seem a little odd. They are. The first part I wrote quite awhile ago during a freewriting poetry phase. Yesterday I decided to put it to music. The second "verse" is also pretty old, I cut some stuff and changed it a little so it worked. Then the last part is new.

I don't really see how they are pretentious though

@bbt Oops,that was a typo. I meant *unpretensious.
Which basically means modest.They werent super extravagant
lyrics. Lots of writers(including me).Always paint a mental
picture of.birds flying,and free birds,and they also talk.a lot
about there women leaving and such,Which i found to
be kinda generic in this song.

Its not a bad song,just the lyrics are a bit odd,and predictable.
nothing wrong with that,it is what is.
My 2 cents.

What exactly do you think pretentious means?

BBT: I wanted either more birds in the later part or less birds altogether.
Edit: After I listened: 1. Great picking. 2. I liked the phrasing of the first 2/3 best and didn't like the way the last two phrases flowed quite as much. A good listen.

I don't believe a song can be "bad" it can be distasteful and dishonest to the ear though. Lyrics mean different things to different people. The message that is sent can have different meanings to everybody. I also think it's the "flow" of a song that makes it catchy and "good" I don't think it had the "flow" but everyone's different and people enjoy different things. You wrote how you feel, Great Job, That's never a bad thing. I really enjoyed the tune, keep it up

case: Elliott Smith has poor flow and weird lyrical choices, but sometimes it works really well.

Elliott is one of the only writers who could say something like "you idiot kid" and I still take him completely seriously.

Great tune and I don't mind the lyrics.

All together it reminded me of the Dave Matthews band though that might just be your voice.
