“Bird of Sorrow” by Glen Hansard

Even if a day feels too long,
and you feel like you can’t wait another one
and you’re slowly giving up on everything,
love is gonna find you again
Love is gonna find you, you’d better be ready then.

Well you’ve been kneeling in the dark for far too long,
You’ve been waiting for that spark, but it hasn’t come,
Well I’m calling to you please, get off the floor
Love is gonna find you again.
love is gonna find you, you’d better be ready then.

Tethered to a bird of sorrow, a voice that’s buried in the hollow
you’ve given over to self deceiving, you’re prostrate bowed but not believing
you’ve squandered more than you could borrow
you’ve bet your joys on all tomorrows, for the hope of some returning
while everything around you is burning.

Come on, we gotta get out, get out of this mess we’ve made
and still for all our talk, we’re both so afraid.
And will we leave this up to chance, like we do with everything?
A good heart will find you again
A good heart will find you, just be ready then.

Tethered to a bird of sorrow, a voice that’s buried in the hollow
you’ve given over to self deceiving, you’re prostrate bowed but not believing
you’ve squandered more than you could borrow
you’ve bet your joys on all tomorrows, for the hope of some returning
while everything around you is burning
but I’m not leaving you here, I’m not leaving you here,
I’m not leaving

I’m not leaving you here, I’m not leaving
I’m not leaving you here

I’m hanging on,
oh I’m hanging on,
for what’s gonna come
I’m hanging on, I’m hanging on
Hanging on, hanging on, hanging on, hanging on
hanging on,
with the faithful, with the faithful
I’m hanging on,
for what’s gonna come,
for what’s gonna come
I’m hanging on, I’m hanging on, with the faithful
