about

The daily dose of bad news takes its toll on us all. This song is about trying to stay sane and free in the face of it.

Big thanks to John Kelly for providing a bunch of the lead guitar tracks!

lyrics

You need rain when the sun shines
You need pain when you’re feeling fine
Misery loves company
Run away with me

The bluebird’s song doesn’t change your mood
The mourning dove she sings to you
I hear her every day
Does she sing the truth?

Have I grown numb, because it never stops.
The world is reeling from the hardest knocks.
To feel it every day
Doesn’t ease the shocks

Let’s go to the lake tonight
And look out for the northern lights
We’ll stare into the sky
For a billion years

The full moon is shining bright
The great expanse has turned to ice
Where great ships sailed
Before we learned to fly

Letting go and falling free
Across the space between you and me
Where we land we’ll never know
When we learn to fly

Letting go and falling free
Across the space between you and me
Where we land we’ll never know
We’ll leave it all behind.

Hey little bluebird, where’d you go?
Fly with me some time.
