How it must feel to be a bird Roamin' lonely over sea air How it must feel to be a bird

London, Paris, underneath And I'll wait on my own (Ooh, hmm, ooh) And I couldn't tell you enough that I'm sorry And no, you couldn't tell me enough that you love me But she's bringin' the moon and stars to me Damn permanent reverie And even though this life, this love is brief I've got some people who carry me Wasn't it love as soon as we knew each other properly? Livin' 'bout half right 'til a certain person got to me Nothin' is secret, everythin's sacred, how it ought to be Under the moonlight on a clear night On rooftops is where I want to be Sometimes I'm like a child, that's somethin' I can't release Dreams of her comin' home, sweet home And I'm tellin' you home is so sweet Said you reminded me of the summertime, and I still mean that In a full room, I'm the only one she's smilin' at So wouldn't you let me know if you were thinkin' less of me? That's what she asked me What was promised, what we both agreed But truthfully, if you ever go You'll drop me straight to Hell, the 7th circle And I was talkin' with you earlier We were open and vulnerable, it was wonderful I, I used to dream that you would talk to me I used to dream that you would talk to me And I couldn't tell you enough that I'm sorry And no, you couldn't tell me enough that you love me But she's bringin' the moon and stars to me Damn permanent reverie And even though this life, this love is brief I've got some people who carry me You know that feelin' when you think your heart is gonna come right out through your shirt? Get it a couple times a year But I've been gettin' it more often with her Now when I'm face to face with death, I'll grab his throat And ask him, "How does it hurt?" Up in those golden moments, growin' old too quickly Was he thinkin' of her? But she's bringin' the moon and stars to me Damn permanent reverie And even though this life, this love is brief I've got some people who carry me
