Song lyrics

[CHORUS]
There is a bird in a tree
talking to me
Saying "I used to be you
but now I'm me"

And he won't go to sleep
and he's keeping me awake
He's trying to tell me something
for goodness sake

And he won't fly away
though the urge is rather strong
He's gotta tell me something
before he's gone

There is a bird in a tree
talking to me
Saying "I used to be you
but now I'm me"

[VERSE]
That night
In my dreams
I traded my arms
for wings that could fly
Got a brand new beak
and my lips went bye bye

It took more strength than I thought
to break out of the shell
and hop on the branch
To sing to the man,
that I used to be

[SING CHORUS ONE MORE TIME, THEN END]
