Cherry Ghost – Mountain Bird lyrics

Angel eyes, strike a match and set this city alight
All of my life I have been pondering the good done
doing right

Won't you be my mountain bird?
Forget all you've seen and heard here
Change your name and cut your hair
Spread your wings across my window
Don't go chasing that green back dollar

There was a time, when I'd sing my songs with a
mouthful of rain
Now I'm a cut price criminal
First goes your heart, there goes the shame

Won't you be my mountain bird?
Forget all you've seen and heard here
Change your name, change your name and cut your hair
Spread your wings across my window
Don't go chasing that green back dollar

Button up boy, toughen up boy, learn to destroy
But when all my tears have run dry
Oh who am I to tell my grief to

Fight, like a dog, with a big ass bone you'll still be
a dog
Kid with a dumbbell ego, shootin' at the neighbours
For a borrowed God

Won't you be my mountain bird?
Forget all you've seen and heard here
Change your name, change your name and cut your hair
Spread your wings across my window
Don't go chasing that green back dollar

The green back dollar
Who am I to tell my grief to?
