lyrics

A little bird got sick and died
Waiting for you with me
I'm not sure if I'm not gonna follow
I'm not sure if I remember your face
But I remember your back
When you turned and walked away
I held my breath
Counted all of your steps
Till this rainy morning swallowed you whole

Day by day
I fed this bird
The same bullshit hope I lived for
That some day
You will return
Although I know you're not coming back

I am the ground
Burning behind your back
I am the land
Wasted by war that you carried through
I am
The orphaned children, the widowed wives
I am the land
Burning right where you left your steps

I am undone
I am misplaced
Just a mark on a map
A drop in the rain

My name is pain
This heartache I can't wash away
This heartache I can't run away from
This heartache I can't wash away

I am a soldier's wife
I am a soldier's mother
I am a soldier
Waiting to die alone
Away from home
Away from you
But this prison's forever my home

A little bird got sick and died
Waiting for you with me
I'm not sure if I'm not gonna follow
I'm not sure if I remember your face
But I remember your back
