"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."
