Little bluebird

Little bluebird
I can see you down in that hole
You feel lost
You don’t know where to go
I’ll tell you where
I’ll show you the way
Save your tears for another day

Little bluebird
Down in a hole
You’ve been there
Many times before
It never seems to stop you
From flying some more
Today you’re still there
A guest in your own tier

Bluebird
I see why you’re sad
Your wing is injured
And it’s really bad
The world is so big
Outside of your hole
Watch the sunset little bluebird
and make yourself whole

Wings broken
Hopes shattered
You tried to fly
Instead you were battered
Nothing matters
At least anymore
Little little bluebird
You can still fly
If you haven’t yet said good bye

Little bluebird
Down in a hole
Your wing is injured
And your heart is full

Anyway, it'd be nice to talk sometime and catch up sometime. Again, I don't know if you go on here anymore so maybe you'll never see this, but if you do just reply to this and I'll give y...
