Face pressed up close to the glass
Wondering how the birds take flight
and where the sun will go at night
Face pressed up close to the glass
Breathing small circles of breath
and counting all the pieces left

Dreaming of somewhere far away
where things get born and never feel lonely
Dreaming of one day going there
'Cuz here
You gotta keep too many things inside
You gotta keep too many things inside

Breathing in shallow breaths
Feeling gentle heartbeats
and crawling underneath the sheets
Summertime, still light outside
can't seem to penetrate
all the dark that's wanting to escape

What are those birds called that cannot live in captivity?
Something wanting to stay alive
So she's keeping all these things inside.


from Little Grey House, released January 1, 2006
