As I swim mermaids dance with me
As I drown they romance with me
They sing sweet little harmonies
Louder and louder until I can't breathe

Hey blue bird on my shoulder
Can you carry me over?

I talked to blue bird, why walk when you can fly?
She told me, baby life tastes better when you're high
I said, hey blue bird can you take me for a ride
Leave me on a cloud, I'll live with blue birds in the sky

As I walk I can feel the heat
As it burns I can smell the sweet
Piece by piece I am yours to feast
All this pain is seducing me

Hey blue bird on my shoulder
Can you carry me over?

I talked to blue bird, she said why walk when you can fly?
She told me, baby life tastes better when you're high
I said, hey blue bird can you take me for a ride
Leave me on a cloud, I'll live with blue birds in the sky.......

Blue bird on my shoulder
Can ya...can ya......
Can ya carry me
Can ya carry me
Can ya carry me over.......
Oh
Oh

I talked to blue bird, she said why walk when you can fly?
And she told me, baby life tastes better when you are high
I said, hey blue bird.....take me for a ride
Leave me on a cloud, live with you in the
Live with you in the sky.......
Yeah

    General CommentI'm clueless, like rocketsummergirl...though for some reason it reminds me of Go Ask Alice (ya know the book, about the drug abuser).

    General CommentAt first I thought it was about using drugs and the affects it causes. But then it seems more of a freedom song, where you can do anything. I think bluebird is just some random thing ... Your curiosity, possibly?

    General Commentyes she does play Manny. and the bluebird is like a savior. like her life is suffocating her. kind of like Dorothy when she wanted to go over the rainbow.

    General CommentI know this song isn't REALLY about drugs but the way she talks about the "blue bird" reminds me of the ecstasy pill, blue dove...like when she says, "Hey blue bird, on my shoulder, can you carry me over?" it's like she's taking a pill and hoping it'll get her there...
    but yeah, I know it's not really about drugs. Just felt like throwing that connection I found out there.
