Birdie

(3:53)

(V1)
birdie was a sweet girl never went far
she kept all her money in a mason jar
and stopped the car to pick flowers by the road


henry was young and looking for a start
a man in stature but a boy in heart
smarter than the rest and he always tried his best

to win birdies hand


(PRE)
rocks on her window
she could hear him outside

she opened the curtain

there he stood
and in the night he cried


(CHORUS)
i love you birdie
and i always have
no one knows me like you do

and it’s bad enough that
i’m on the right side of broken

i’m on the left side of you
no one knows me like you do


(V2)
birdie caught his eye in the summer one day

he looked at her once and couldn't look away

when she danced, with dandelions in her hair


henry knew she was a fragile soul
but no one is made from a perfect mold

and she fell in love with something she saw

he kept all his money in a mason jar


(PRE)
he threw rocks on her window

she could hear him outside
she opened the curtain

there he stood
and in the night she cried


(CHORUS)
(BRIDGE)
what if fate was this boy in blue

something old but it feels so new

she’d regret it if she didn’t try
so in the night she cried


(LAST CHORUS)
i love you henry
and i always have
no one knows me like you do
and i’m glad you came
cause you’re on the home stretch of broken

and i will stand by you
no one knows me like you do
