BLUEBIRD TATTOOS

 

Bluebird tattoos on the back of her arms

He could see them as she flew away.

Bluebird tattoos on the back of her arms

Now she doesn’t even have to wave.

 

He waits so patiently to see if she’ll be his wife.

Her only answer is blue tattoos for life.

He aches for love to be so much more more than win or lose.

If only love could last as long as blue tattoos.

 

Bluebird tattoos on the back of her arms

He could see them as she flew away.

Bluebird tattoos on the back of her arms

She doesn’t even have to wave.

 

How long can love fly on when the wax is done?

Is this the price for flying too close to the sun?

Who’ll mend this raggedy broken wing back to flight?

Who'll light the scarlet heart and watch it burn all night?

 

He makes these castaway footprints there in the sand?

He shakes his head as if he didn't really understand   

 

These Blue bird tattoos on the back of her arms

So he would see them as she flew away.

Blue bird tattoos on the back of her arms

Now she doesn’t even have to wave.
