Painted Birds

Cho - I sit here in this quiet room
I draw the shades against the sun
If memories were painted birds
I’d line them up and get my gun.

1 - There are times when I think you will walk
through the door
Of the house that you lived in and smile when
you see me
There are times when I think I don’t care
But they don’t last long and they don’t fool me.

Cho - Repeat

2 - You drink your anger like a cup of wine
To stop you from shaking and make you feel
But do you feel unsteady by the light of day
When you half remember that something’s

Cho - Repeat

3 - You’ve made a weapon of your heart
I tried to stop it with my own
But all I got was torn apart
And all you got was more alone.

Cho - Repeat
