Jeff Tweedy – Some Birds lyrics
[Verse 1]
Some birds just sit useless, like fists
I wrestle on TV but no one ever lets me win
I lean on the wall like a broom
Confused by the scope it all
Any fool can tell the truth

[Pre-Chorus 1]
And no, I don't think I should
Add one to the sum
Of all that you fear

[Chorus]
I'd love to take you down
And leave you there

[Verse 2]
In my window, I have a twin
I look out, he looks in
He has a point, I applaud
My goodness, my god
Is it my fault the countrysides
Are so full of suicide?
I break bricks with my heart
Only a fool would call it art

[Pre-Chorus 2]
And no, I don't think that I should
Be one of the sum
Of all that you fear

[Chorus]
I'd love to take you down
And leave you there
I'd love to take you down
And leave you there

[Verse 3]
So why fuss, why not bend
Like a nail, hammered in?
Oh, times are tough
If I recall, oh, it ain't easy
No, not all

[Pre-Chorus 3]
And no, I don't think I should
Complete the sum
Of all that you fear

[Chorus]
I'd love to take you down
And leave you there

[Outro]
I'd love to take you down
Down and leave you there
