man, the lyrics on this are great. each verse stands on its own with great memorable imagery and it all connects into a larger story.... the drums on this sound so great and loose. bass lines keep it swinging and moving along. great vocals, as usual.
i've been listening to this tune a lot. (i downloaded this a long time ago but didn't have a chance to comment, sorry for the late feedback.)

One song I almost forgot to rate due to my vacation that deserves all the stars it is reaching for. It combines lightnes with a deep and personal view I love in music. It brings back so many great music to my memory. Excellent in the execution. I love this

Cool and uplifting. Reminds me of Badly Drawn Boy mixed with Sloan. Good length.

fkn awsome, glad to hear you back, love how you turn such poetic lyrics into a groovy gem, almost sounds like you collaborated with Posthumous Music.

Tries hard to be entertaining, but the material just isn't so much.
Birdie Says Goodbye

she whispers to friendly mirrors
her feathers conceal the secret she breathes
I think I've discovered a ticket to free
the cage door sticks up high
ducks below it and off she flies

the bird on the telephone wire
she likes how the talk can tickle her feet
she doesn't stay long cause her balance is weak
and once the talking ends
she's alone on the wire again

the wing can travel anywhere
as straight as a crow flies
it only needs somewhere to go
the birdie says goodbye goodbye
the birdie says goodbye

the bird on the chimney's quiet
there's not much to say when the weather's this cold
she welcomes the heat from the furnace below
and wonders why she stayed
when everyone flew away

bumper stickers calling from the motor home display
someone in the mirror's hoping you'll be back one day

but the wing can travel anywhere
as straight as a crow flies
it only needs somewhere to go
the birdie says goodbye goodbye
the birdie says goodbye
