lyrics

Everything is quiet and has been for a while
Those cliché rainy day blues at my window
As I sit like so many men who’ve come before me
Watching my hummingbird go

Oh how you’d hover
Oh how you’d buzz
And I’ll curse the day that I let you fly away
And watched you rise above

Well it’s all blood and guts now and I’m getting used to it
Like all those movies my dad took me to before he should’ve
Oh Mrs. Ostrich, Mr. Turtle teach me how to live
Because I’d rather ignore than forget

Oh how you’d hover
Oh how you’d buzz
But after a while I’d no longer smile
And soon you were gone for good

Never again will I hear you humming in my ear
You flew away on a cold winter’s day
South to some warmer place

But oh how you’d hover
And oh how you would buzz
So I’ll plant some seeds, promise nectar so sweet
But I know it’ll never be enough
