Winter Birds (lyrics)

(Erin Jordan)
The streets are empty tonight - the winter birds have taken their flight - and the light in this window tonight is not too bright. People come here to meet and then leave - people come here to meet and then flee.

You've got your endless slew of bars and meals - you're so cultured now - becoming real. We're alone together - whole when apart - so make another diagram of your heart. Take it down to the science fair - you can win your gold star there. This is what people like us do - don't pretend that I am just like you. What did you ever really need?

There is no turning back after you have paved your path. We choose to live this way - partly cloudy every day. I really didn't mind the rain - but instead the snow just came. People come here to meet and then leave - people come here to meet and then flee. What did you ever want at all?
