"Bird of Paradise" as written by and Charlie Parker....
Just a kiss from your lips and I'm...gone
Just a smile from your touch and I'm...gone
Just a touch from your words makes me whole
And the glance from your eyes says home
I see what you're doing, you're piling it all up one by one,
Pulling from the stars, drinking the teas,

I SEE WHAT YOU'RE DOING, YOU'RE PILING IT ALL UP ONE BY ONE,
PULLING THE EYES, PULLING THE TEAS,
And CROSSING THEM ALL OUT!

Just a kiss from your lips,
Just a smile from your touch and i'm gone
Just a touch from your words makes me whole
And the glance from your eyes says home
I see what you're doing, you're piling it all up one by one,
Pulling from the stars, drinking from the seas,

I SEE WHAT YOU'RE DOING, YOU'RE PILING IT ALL UP ONE BY ONE,
PULLING THE STARS, PULLING THE SEAS,
AND CROSSING THEM ALL OUT!

Don't you want to be my love?
Can't we suddenly elope?
Try and cross the sea above
Can't we suddenly elope
Don't you want to be my love?
Can't we suddenly elope?
Try and cross the sea above
Can't we suddenly elope?
Just a kiss, a kiss from your lips
And I

    General Commentits like, a phycotic poem. phycotic and insane. but good pshycotic/insane. and its kind of, well... dont you want to be with me? i think you do! but you wont admit it. [psycotic] youre making me suffer without your love. elope means ' to runaway with a lover' so its like... come on. you know and i know it. lets just go. but for somereason, shes resisting it.

    General CommentIt's a Charlie Parker song. I think the CD is called Bird Up. It's a bunch of his songs done by other people.

    General CommentThis song seems to be drug influenced. This was also done during a time when I believe Serj has been "finding himself". The crowd he hung out with was rather dark and this probably has a bit more meaning to the person it was written about. The Bird of Paradise is after all an extremely rare bird, on the virge of extinction.
