Simon Joyner - Came A Yellow Bird lyrics

Came a yellow bird outside my window
Said bring me water and crusts of bread
Came a yellow bird outside my window
Said bring me water and crusts of break
For I'm injured and I'm haunted
By the storms in which I fled
I tried to fly to New Orleans
But I got lost in heavy rains
I tried to fly to New Orleans
But I got lost in heavy rains
I got many holes in my two wings
From arrows that you aimed
It wasn't I wounded you I didn't any arrows I could shoot
It wasn't I wounded you, any arrows I could shoot
I'm just a lonely man, I never left this room
Besides that I, how on earth could I
Hurt anything so frail as thee
Besides that I, how on earth could I
Hurt anything so frail as thee
When we've never met before this moment
When you called for help from me

Now yellow bird step down into my room
And she chose her words carefully
Yellow bird stepped down into my room
She chose her words carefully
She said you were aiming for the sun
And I was just in-between
And every time you wish to die
An arrow was released
Every time you wish to die
An arrow was released
And the only thing between dark and light
Was my breast or yellow wings
Well this can't be true I shook with fear
Though I knew she didn't lie
This can't be true I shook with fear
Though I knew she couldn't lie
I never wanted to harm anybody else
It's just I who wish to die
And then the tears came rolling down
And the floor fell underneath
And then the tears came rolling down
And the floor fell underneath
And the yellow bird folded her wings together
And I dragged her down with me
