Black and Bluebird (Lyrics)

dontburnthepig.org

If I could fly at the speed of light
I could get to Canis Major in 5,000 years
Butterflies and black and blue birds, I'll never be the same since I met you
Pennies thrown into a fountain
Make a wish, blow out the candles, take a breath
Not as troubling when you consider believers that would welcome the end of the world

Got a job and it pays me
I want love more than I deserve
I read the paper, makes me crazy
There's gotta be a way to make it work

Ashes, Stardust 
Look at us, crawling out the mud
Let's go, around the block
We'll make the most before the jig is up
Dreamers, the big top
We'll never know, I guess never stop
Ashes, stardust
Look at us, crawling out the mud

I know that dying is scary to us
But everybody do it, 1-2-3
On the sidewalk, the dandelion is reaching from a crack up to the sun
Words can be a wicked tool
For twisting truth
I wanna be true to you
Blood and bones, black holes and stones
All those things paved the way for you and me

Got a job and it pays me
I want love more than I deserve
I read the paper makes me crazy
There's gotta be a way to make it work
Ashes, stardust
Look at us crawling out the mud
Let's go around the block
We'll make the most before the jig is up
Campfires and high rises
You never know quite when to stop
Ashes, stardust
Look at me crawling out the mud

If I could fly at the speed of light
I could get to Betelgeuse in about 600 years
Butterflies and black and bluebirds
I'll never be the same since I met you
Maybe dying is scary too us, but everybody do it A-B-C
Not as troubling when I consider
Believers that would welcome the end of the world.

Got a job 'cause it pays me
I want love more than I deserve
I read the paper, makes me crazy
There's gotta be a way to make it work

Ashes, stardust
Look at us crawling out the mud
Let's go around the block
We'll make the most before the jig is up
Ashes, stardust
Look at us crawling out the mud
Ashes, stardust
Look at me crawling out the mud

Butterflies and black and blue birds
I'll never be the same since I met you
If I could fly at the speed of light
I'd get the Betelgeuse in about 600 years
Butterflies and black and blue birds
