The Fratellis - The Last Songbird Lyrics


The sun went down like a vision on a hill
She knows she never knew him and she knows she never will
And the band played where’s your lost love gone on and on
There was nothing too good for this English rose
Knew she had a heart but where God only knows
So we let her know we’re bound

Listen to the sound
Of one hand clap in the pale of the moonlight
All those years frozen in the spotlight
Knowing now maybe somehow
They just burn too bright
Even when they want
They always lost themselves to the sideways glances
Prayed to the saints of doomed romances
Tell their tale, love is not for sale
It’s a word you heard
The last songbird

They walked for miles in the dead heat sun
From those memories they can never outrun
And the band played where did our love go
Who could know
He would grow himself out of fit and plead
Give me everything, I want nothing that I need
But to you I’m always bound

Listen to the sound
Of one hand clap in the pale of the moonlight
All those years frozen in the spotlight
Knowing now maybe somehow
They just burn too bright
Even when they want
They always lost themselves to the sideways glances
Prayed to the saints of doomed romances
Tell their tale, love is not for sale
It’s a word you heard
The last songbird

Under this crooked spell how can anybody resist
He keeps her under lock and key she keeps him on the to do list
Porcelain nights and skin tight moves
They live between the comedy and comedown blues
In love and war all is lost and found
Is it just the case of the last shakedown
While the world spins every way around and around
All is simple on the upside down

Listen to the sound of
One hand clap in the pale of the moonlight
All those years frozen in the spotlight
Knowing now maybe somehow
They just burn too bright
Even when they want
They always lost themselves to the sideways glances
Prayed to the saints of doomed romances
Tell their tale, love is not for sale
It’s a word you heard
The last songbird
