Velvet Belly - Loneliness - Her Word lyrics

music  : Velvet Belly
lyrics : Robert Frost

One ought not have to care
So much as you and I
Care when the birds come round the house
To seem to say good-bye;

Or care so much when they come back
With whatever it is they sing;
The truth being we are as much
Too glad for the one thing

As we are too sad for the other here--
With birds that fill their breasts
But with each other and themselves
And their built or driven nests.
