Little Bird

from Demerara (EP) by Jenna Ellefson



You don't have to say it I know
You're chasing the sun to the other coast
Don't worry lover, I know

I came to your house before you left

But I left them unsaid
On your front steps

I climbed above the surface streets
And watched the plains leaving

I told you goodbye I said your name
Then drove back across town watching daylight fade
But my heart was beating
A little bird singing
In a cage
