Midwife

lyrics

Baby bird with broken wing
Cannot fly and he doesn’t wanna sing
About anything
No goddess reaching down
To the place on the ground
He lay

But you told me a story
When I’d had enough
We heard frogs a’ courting
Then we saw them
You were a midwife to the strangers in my head
Being born just as I was being dead
Being born just as I was being dead

Cups my head in her hands
I don’t get how she understands me now
I’m told not to say a word
Of my thoughts about the bird I found

And you told me a story
When I’d had enough
We heard frogs a’ courting
Then we saw them
You were a midwife to the strangers in my head
Being born just as I was being dead
Being born just as I was being dead

Baby bird with broken wing
Cannot fly and he doesn’t wanna sing
About anything
