Ben Howard – Bird On A Wing lyrics
[Verse 1]
Bird on a wing
Such a fine and peaceful thing
Ooh, it ain’t right, it ain’t wrong
Make your mind up, child
Don’t go out and sin alone
Ain't we rolling through lost and found
Make your mind up, child
Don't go out and head on into the town

[Chorus]
There'll be fooling, frolic and flight
There'll be bands playing
It's a part if that's what you like
Is it all worth saving?

[Verse 2]
Bird on a wing
Such a fine and peaceful thing
Ain't we rolling through lost and found
Make your mind up, child
Don't go out and head on into the town

[Chorus 2]
There'll be fooling, frolic and flight
There'll be bands playing
Come play, play it nice
No matter what the devils say
There'll be fooling, frolic and flight
There'll be kindness and danger
Talk it strange
Turning the night
[?] stranger

And there you are, my shimmering light
And all signs point on, there’s nowhere open at this time
Where she stood out in the garden
With a hatchet in her hands
Said I’ll be going out there
And I’ll be seeing you then
Or something of that kind

Smile and it will happen
Smile and it will happen
Smile and things happen

[Verse 2]
Bird on a wing
Such a fine and peaceful thing
Ain't we rolling through lost and found
Make your mind up, child
Don't go out and head on into the town
