My Brightest Diamond – The Robin's Jar lyrics
Once we found a robin
In our backyard
It was already dead
But we were so sure
That things weren't gone too far
So we prayed to God above
That He'd bring it back to us
And we put it in a jar
And waited, and waited
But mama made us bury it
Mama made us bury it
In the backyard
I wished to be just like my best friend
She was the brightest star in the room
Yeah but we didn't know what we had
With the world pressing in
On her backyard
She fell in backwards
She fell in backwards
With the world pressing in
On her backyard
She fell in backwards
We prayed to God above
That He'd bring her back to us
So we put her in a box
We put her in a box
And waited
For something to happen
But nothing happened
But mama made me bury her
Mama made me bury her
Mama made me bury her in the backyard
