lyrics

I wish you'd stop talking about that bluebird in your heart/ I can clearly see him perched on your arm / whistling a sweet, soft tune / but i don't weep and you do /

You're not supposed to show the bartender / You've got to hide him from the grocery clerk / Only take him out at night / Once you've drawn the blinds / and the whores and the paperboys are fast at work/

You can drink your whiskey / Chain smoke your cigarettes, but / those won't make you clever, no / Why can't you get that through your head/

I wish you'd stop talking about that bluebird in your heart / His cage door didn't shut from the start / Can't fool the boys or the full moon / but you don't know and I do /

Last call says the bartender / and still your phone sleeps like it's out of work / Your sleeve is bleeding all the time / Thin woes in cheap disguise / turning helpful smiles into smirks /

You can drink your whiskey / Chain smoke your cigarettes and / those might make you clever, but / you won't remember what was said / sympathetic times will come and go / So tonight, throw a sheet over the cage and end the show /
