Little Bird

Notes

The first song written and the first song on the album, Little Bird is an homage to our dog, Sarah, who has this funny little bird call she does when she wants to go out for a walk.  One morning, when I was shaving and singing the tune to the song, I heard her make that funny little noise and the words just came.

Rebecca and I performed this over at Steve Guile’s house for the songwriter showcase and it was a blast.  This song is all about the live performance.

Lyrics

Little Bird
I hear you singing through my window
I hear you singing out the song I’m feeling in my heart now
Sing it, Little Bird

Little Bird
You got a melody so sweet
You know you got me moving to the rhythm of the street now
Sing it, Little Bird

And it’s the same song speaking to the sinners
And the same song calling to the saints, so
Sing it, Little Bird

Everyone I meet
Seems to know that something’s changing
Seems to know there’s something moving deep inside my heart now
Sing it, Little Bird

Interlude

Every time I hear you singing
Hear you singing through my window
You know I gotta sing the song I’m feeling in my heart now
I’m singing, Little Bird

And it’s the same song speaking to the sinners
And the same song calling to the saints, so

So sing it, everybody
So sing it, everybody

So sing it, all you children
So sing it, you sinners
So sing it, all you people
