How you kill me
I keep filling up with greatness
Find myself dumping it roadside
Where no one can see me
Love give me somewhere to breathe

How you kill me
Taking up all of my patience
Leaving my temper a widow
But I don't feel like grieving
Should I swim into the sun?
And meet you there
In the half light

How you kill me
Lifting me up to those branches
Letting me look on the world
Just as I sing like a bird you
You shoot me down for your fun
Can you spare this one?

I'm taken by an undertow
I'm covered in your spell from head to toe
He's paying out the dividends
But everything will be nothing in the end
And I
Know that everything's right with me
So come tell me just why it seems
To kill me?

How you kill me
Lifting me up to those branches
Letting me look on the world
Just as I sing like a bird you
You shoot me down for your fun
Can you spare this one?
