Rare Bird

rare bird rare bird come as you are
don’t you pay us no mind
rare bird, rare bird land where you will
but don’t you pay us no mind
rare bird, so rare you make us believe
we become fearful and we make you bleed
rare bird, rare bird
fly as you might
and don’t you pay us no mind

rare bird, oh rare bird sing all your songs
and don’t you pay us no mind
rare bird, sweet rare bird you’re where you belong
so don’t you pay us no mind
rare bird, it’s you born to the sky
you turn us toward hope, we turn and hide so
rare bird, rare bird
fly as you might
and don’t you pay us no mind

rare bird, rare bird i wish i were you
but don’t you pay me no mind
rare bird, oh rare bird
i’m icarus too but don’t you pay me no mind
rare bird, my sweet i soar and i burn
i hunt, i scavenge, hunger and yearn
rare bird, oh rare bird
fly as you might
and don’t you pay me no mind

rare bird, rare bird alone in the sun
don’t you pay us no mind
rare bird, rare bird belong to but one
and don’t you pay us no mind
rare bird don’t tell us you’re lonely up there
that your wings become weary we’ve our own cross to bear
rare bird, rare bird
fly as you might
and don’t you pay us no mind
