I don’t know the words
I left them to the birds
in the morning light
just to remind me
I hadn’t slept all night
I hadn’t slept all night

see this is the thing
when I think about it being over
I feel like I'm going to sing the saddest song
so very sad, no one will be able to sing along

without hanging their heads to hide their ruined faces
as time goes on, repetition erases
the original meaning
and the pain that with it came
and hopefully by then
I won’t remember your name

see this is the thing,
when I think about it being over
I feel like I'm going to sing

I don’t know the words
I left them to the birds in the morning light
just to remind me I hadn’t slept all night
I hadn’t slept all night

now that we’re alone
sing along with me birds
these are the words we’ve always known
and yes it’s been long
but we won’t forget
and never regret what we learned
when we wrote that song

we didn’t know how to fly
when we fled the nest
ever since we’ve denied our rightful place as second best

now that we’re alone
sing along with me birds
these are the words we’ve always known

I don’t know the words
I left them to the birds in the morning light
just to remind me I hadn’t slept all night
I hadn’t slept all night...
