Drew Blackard – Fallen Mockingbird lyrics

I woke up this morning with a heartbeat in my feet

gave my worst hello to every new girl that I meet

and I sing back everything every single word

and so I float along like a fallen mockingbird


All this decency it's getting on my nerves

learning to express myself without four letter words

and apathy it chases me to the end of the day

like a fallen mockingbird would have it any other way


Yeah I can't dream at night turn on a reading light and I lie awake

But I can't read a word like a fallen mockingbird but I turn each page and I wait


Last night was one of those I didn't sleep a wink

so I wrote a lullaby I'll sing it to my shrink

she'll read into everything into every single word

then she'll just look at me like I'm a fallen mockingbird


I believe in a Sunday breeze that sends me on my way

I believe you can see my breath from at lease a mile away

and there's something to be said for accepting the absurd

and there's something to be said to a fallen mockingbird


Yeah I can't dream at night turn on a reading light and I lie awake

But I can't read a word like a fallen mockingbird but I turn each page and I wait


Yeah I can't dream at night turn on a reading light and I lie awake

But I can't read a word like a fallen mockingbird but I turn each page and I wait
