Lyrics

I never could understand
A bird that didn’t want to fly
A bird that didn’t want to fly

I wish I could lift up your hands
I wish I could teach your voice to sing
But you said it wouldn’t change a thing

Please just come back in
It’s getting cold
You’re trying to make your heart
A stone
I know you don’t believe
But you don’t have to be alone
You don’t have to be alone

You said, “Don’t take me back there”
But you got to taste the medicine
You got to taste the medicine

If you could talk a while
You know I can carry anything
I can carry anything

Please just come back in
It’s getting cold
You’re trying to make your heart
A stone
I know you don’t believe
But you don’t have to be alone

Love can take apart
A heavy load
It’s trying to rebuild a home
I hope that you will see
That you don’t have to be alone
You don’t have to be alone
