There Is A Hurt Bird In My Back Yard
There Is A Hurt Bird In My Backyard
There is a hurt bird in my back yard,
perhaps in all of us
I can tell it has had a rough life.
Struggling every day to get a bit of food
So little help from me or you,
He feels like life had let him down
and now he says look how I ended up.
Attacked every where he goes,
Afraid from so many foes.
Hey little bird stay by my house away from the struggles of life
I will provide a bit of shelter what is that to me?
A few bits of bread and a sip of water,
I think I can spare that but not others
He remembers his mother and how she nursed him,
He remembers his father and how he defended them.
Oh little bird you were tossed out of your nest it was for your own good,
but it did not feel very good
We cannot go back only forward
Let me cuddle you,
I will keep you warm its time you had a home to go to.
