lyrics

Your kindred spirit always brightened my day
Wouldn’t be no guitar man without your inspiring way
Strange the earth still turns even though you’re gone

Songbird, sing

The smile of eternity in old photos breaks me down
Recipes of classics you taught the smells they’ll forever haunt
I drown in the emails of you tellin’ me don’t give in

Songbird, sing

So at night when I’m lonely in my way
Wave where you sit in the sky while your body lays in your grave
I’ll care for the keys you left, your white baby grand

Songbird, sing

What I owe can never be repaid
What I owe can never be repaid
I’ve never felt no debt like this
Never once in my life
But I’m gonna pay my due

You’d drop a melody like a sunset guaranteed
To hear your jazz right now lord it’d set me right free
You’d exalt the musician in everyone

Songbird, sing
Of course your final words weren’t even words
Well it was a three note melody
You were singing through a tired wasted body
I don’t know what was sung, only you were singin’

Songbird, sing
