There's a story I'd like you to listen to
About a lady and a broken bird
Broken by the hammer, you took it so hard
You hardly said a word

Sending them back over the lines
Whistling down the wire from pole to pole
And bending them over the times
Trying to burn the diamonds from the holy coal

Sending them over the lines
Whistling down the wire from pole to pole
Bending them over the times
Trying to burn the diamonds from the holy coal

Telling this story slowly together
Reading in the dark
The bird that you saw dying
We saw flying
