Bird of Sorrow - Glen Hansard

Even if a day feels too long, if 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 better be ready then.

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
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 can borrow
You've bet your joy 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 made
And still for all our talk, we're both so afraid.
Will we leave this up to chance like we do everything?
Love is gonna find us again
Love is gonna find us, we've got to 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
And you bet your joys on all tomorrows, for the hope of some returning
While everything around you's burning.
Well I'm not leaving you here, I'm not leaving you here. I'm not leaving.

I'm hanging on
Hanging on, with the faithful.
