Reef – New Bird lyrics

Bird that flew away

To a foreign pace

Won't come back unchanged

Sleepless as I lay

In my laboured state

Who would rather say

I want a new bird

My lover

Sold myself away

In the you. S. A.

What a price I paid

Hard 'tis to believe

That they'd never seen

Salted waters green
