Birds
From a thousand miles away
At a lonely time of day
Leave it up to night to quietly remind us

Time
Though it mostly slips away
Doesn't seem to mind the way
It's a midnight serenade
Do you feel the same as I do

[Chorus]
Close your eyes
Think of what you have beside you
Even I
Understand the reasons why you stay

Oh I am stuck in someone else's shoes
An unfamiliar view
But I promise not to do the things they do

Oh I would never make you choose
I have so much less to lose
There's a world between these words and how we use them
So don't confuse them

[Chorus]

I hide behind the words that fall
I wait for you to dream
I sing so you might hear these words
But sadly so might she
She knows you disappear sometimes
But knows that you will stay
And so I end this story with
One last serenade

Close your eyes
Think of what you have beside you
Even I
Understand the reasons why you stay
