she landed on my window-Music and Lyrics by Cork freelance artist, songwriter and poet

I know it sounds absurd, but this is a true story. You know the type. Boy meets girl. Boy is enchanted by girl. Boy loses girl. Boy is still enchanted. Boy is better for it.

Listen to the Recording

i know it sounds absurd
today i met a bird
she landed on my window

she cocked her head at me
I'm certain as can be
she looked me in the eye
and smiled so

She
she smiled at me
my heart went boom
inside my soul

a broken man
i was
just became
whole

she flew into the room
and landed on my knee
i looked her in the eyes
how they sparkled
she slid her little legs
she stretched her little wings
settled down and laid in my lap now

She
she stayed with me
she filled my house
with the warmth of her soul

a solo man
i was
no longer
alone

she jumped into my hand
and clutched it with her feet
flapped her little wings
made me stand now
she flew around my head
and underneath my arms
they we were
all silly
laughing

She
she danced with me
and filled my heart
with the joy of a boy

my broken bones
were filled
all with life
my creaky ole bones
came back
to life

she flew around the room
landed on the sill
with a nod of her head
flew out the window
i ran over to see
her flying all so free
into the sky so blue now

She
she flew so high
into the sky
to another bird
i watched as they flew together
oh so
free

She
she set me free
I'm all alone
she's gone away

i watched as they flew together
oh so
free
i realized
that would never
be me
men don't fly
can't be with birds
men don't fly
can't be with birds

i know it sounds absurd
today i met a bird
she landed on my window
