REDBIRD AT MY WINDOW

THERE IS A REDBIRD AT MY WINDOW, LOOKING IN AT ME. SAYING SON, YOU’RE NOT THE CHILD. YOU’RE NOT THE CHILD YOU USED TO BE.

OH, I WISH THE REDBIRD WOULD COME BACK TO SEE, WHAT IT REALLY MEANT TO ME. BUT LOOKING OUT MY WINDOW, ALL I CAN SEE IS MY REFLECTION, LOOKING BACK AT ME.

THERE IS A REDBIRD AT MY WINDOW, LOOKING IN AT ME. SAYING SON, YOU WON’T LIVE FOREVER. YOU BETTER LOVE SOMEONE, WHILE YOU’RE STILL HERE.

OH, I WISH THE REDBIRD WOULD COME BACK TO SEE, WHAT IT REALLY MEANT TO ME. BUT LOOKING OUT MY WINDOW, ALL I CAN SEE IS MY REFLECTION, LOOKING BACK AT ME.

THERE IS A REDBIRD AT MY WINDOW, LOOKING IN AT ME. SAYING SON, YOU WON’T CARRY IT WITH YOU. YOU BETTER GIVE IT AWAY, WHILE YOU STILL CAN.

OH, I WISH THE REDBIRD WOULD COME BACK TO SEE, WHAT IT REALLY MEANT TO ME. BUT LOOKING OUT MY WINDOW, ALL I CAN SEE IS MY REFLECTION, LOOKING BACK AT ME.

NOW, I’M STANDING AT MY WINDOW, BUT NO REDBIRD CAN I SEE. OH, THE REDBIRD IS GONE FOREVER, LIKE MY CHILDHOOD IS GONE FROM ME.

OH, I WISH THE REDBIRD WOULD COME BACK TO SEE, WHAT IT REALLY MEANT TO ME. BUT LOOKING OUT MY WINDOW, ALL I CAN SEE IS MY REFLECTION, LOOKING BACK AT ME. YES, ALL I SEE IS MY REFLECTION, LOOKING BACK AT ME.

  1. Very clever. The only way we can see ourselves is our reflection so we never really see what the world sees. In another, we can get a glimpse, maybe your redbird gave you that glimpse.

      The redbird is a symbol and represents my youth and different parts of my life.
