Song Description

Solo - just voice and guitar.

Story Behind the Song

Disappointment at the needless end of a friendship.

Lyrics

the birds are flying backwards in the wind
it's a day for it
it tears around this house like it would break it
it's a day for it

and it's a shame how nothing could prevent it
from the minute you hung up
from the minute you sent it

and rain is running rivers through the hall
it's a day for it
there's not enough cups to catch it all
there's no end to it

it's a shame how nothing could prevent it
from the minute you came
to the minute you meant it

they're wringing out their feathers in the rain
and when they fly they won't be back again

the trees bend down their backs to shelter from
the west wind
that rips out in the starling humming air
my best friend

it's a shame
