Lyrics Print

I had my mind on survival when I heard
The message of your arrival confirmed
Angry rejection, reprisal, absurd
Sudden and joyful surprisal deferred

I sent you away with the mockingbird
Who echoed the message to the rest of the world
My sentiments became eerily slurred
Tainting the joy overwhelming those words 

Not the unveiling I would have preferred
Your trepidation so deeply hurt
Part of me now permanently interred
My love and future irreversibly blurred

And that's all it was one fleeting message
That I want to hear so many times more
And I couldn't share in that effervescence
Because you're not living for what I fight for

I had my mind on survival when I heard
The message of your arrival confirmed
