about

This song is about obsession, plain and simple

lyrics

Bird Song:

If I call your name at midnight
oh, you would not be there
If I call your name at midnight
oh, you would not be there.

You said my name so sweetly,
oh the one time that you called
oh you said my name so sweetly
that I took my clothes all off

Oh, the birds are calling
and I do not believe for me
Oh, the birds are calling
and I do not believe for me
Yes I do not believe for me

I thought I saw you walking
with your trenchcoat in the rain
Yes I thought I saw you driving
down the streets past me again

Yes I drank the table under
and I drank your bitter wine
Yes I drank the table under
and I drank your bitter wine

Oh the bells are ringing
and I do not believe for me
Oh the bells are ringing
and I do not believe for me
yes I do not believe for me

I walk on every Monday
with your memory so clear
yes I walk on vagrant runways
and think of how your near
