Passerine Bird

by Dutch Courage

/

lyrics

Darling when he holds you near
you wince like you're made of bird bones
If he thinks you'd give an inch
he'd be taking a mile

Denying all the contra-evidence
and making yourself easy to convince
you volunteer to lock your pen
sing us a song- you're my passerine bird

On and on
What to do now?

Darling when I saw you in the eaves
preening your down like a swallow
If that's the finery we'd weave
I'd go naked tomorrow

Starting such an awful precedent
to better hide a lack of confidence
though you try to change my mind
sing me a song- you're my passerine bird

On and on
What to do now?

He continues to write and record music in his STL City home.
