Boy & Bear Lyrics – Bird Of Paradise

Feels like I’m on holiday
Down on action
But up against some gentle shore
I always took this for granted

And now you try and take control
Stake out all your sand
I wished that I had not seen
This world I’d uncovered

I found it on a paper thin
Moment of sound faith
But I’d never really noticed
Till now that I need it

And as my dispositions mixing up
With the salt in the air
I wished that I had not seen
This world I’d uncovered

Cos if I could talk that fast I would
If I could fill my cup I’m good
Somebody take me back to that feeling
Know if I just knew that I would

And it descended the night entirely
It reached down on me
And in a long distance state of mind
I confide, in a bird of paradise

Could I float off like a dragon fly
Through the salt in the air
For learn to be ok with this world as it is

And if I could talk that fast I would
Somebody fill my cup I should
And if it hurts that much don’t fight it
Know if I just knew that

It was left outside some time ago
In the pouring rain a cardboard cutout of you
But in a desperate state of mind you’ll find
Time moves slow

Cos if I could talk that fast I would
And if I could fill my cup I’m good
Somebody take me back to that feeling
Know if I just knew that I would
