Flightless Bird, American Mouth

 
Iron & Wine Lyrics
Twilight Soundtrack Movie, 2008
CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

Flightless Bird, American Mouth I was a quick-wit boy, diving too deep for coins
All of your street light eyes wide on my plastic toys

Then when the cops closed the fair, I cut my long baby hair

Stole me a dog-eared map and called for you everywhere

Have I found you
Flightless bird, jealous, weeping or lost you, american mouth
Big pill looming

Now I'm a fat house cat
Nursing my sore blunt tongue
Watching the warm poison rats curl through the wide fence cracks
p**sing on magazine photos
Those fishing lures thrown in the cold
And clean blood of Christ mountain stream

Have I found you
Flightless bird, grounded, bleeding or lost you, american mouth
Big pill stuck going down
