O Rosie
Where have you been
I couldn't save you
But I tried, Rosie
I tried

Why did you run
From everyone
Who only tried to
Love you, Rosie
Only tried

Little bird, if I only knew
Maybe I'd be more like you
With a feather in my wing
Is it spring?
Do I sing?

Why do you run
From everyone
Who only tries to
Love you, only tries...

Maybe I like pleasure pain
Of going and coming back again
What I leave behind
I come back to find
It's no longer mine

So why not run
From everyone
Who only tries to
Love you, Rosie, only tries...

Little bird, if I only knew
Maybe I'd be more like you
With a feather in my wing
Is it spring?
Do I sing?

Maybe I like pleasure pain
Of going and coming back again
What I leave behind
I come back to find
It's no longer mine

Little bird, if I only knew
Maybe I'd be more like you

With a feather in my wing
Is it spring?
Do I sing?
