Lyrics

If I were a bird
I would be the smallest bird that I could be
As weightless as the air
I could change direction as a loose leaf

No baggage
No body full of bones
No bones full of sorrow and guilt
No bones of joy and love

No love, no pain no hate no gain
And I would just fly, fly away
Fly, fly away
Fly, fly, fly away

So, so beautiful and cruel
So cruel and beautiful
So beautiful and cruel
So cruel and beautiful

Bright colours and endless movement
Blue and green and iridescent and tangerine, tangerine
Life’s so pure
Life’s so free

And I would just fly, fly away
Fly, fly away
Fly, fly, fly away

So, so beautiful and cruel
So cruel and beautiful
So beautiful and cruel
So cruel and beautiful

If I were a bird
If I were a bird
I would fly away

If I were a bird
If I were a bird
Oh I would just fly, fly away
Fly, fly away
Fly, fly, fly away

So, so beautiful and cruel
So cruel and beautiful
So beautiful and cruel
So cruel and beautiful

So cruel, so cruel, so cruel and beautiful
So cruel, so cruel, so cruel and beautiful
