A Bird Can Only Sing

They say it’s gonna’ rain but it ain’t raining yet
They say it’s gonna’ rain but it ain’t raining yet
She told me she was leaving but she came back with cigarettes

A man cannot outrun what’s always on his mind
A man cannot outrun what’s always on his mind
I drove it to the border on a quarter tank of wine

A bird can only sing until it’s in the ground
A bird can only sing until it’s in the ground
I made it to the ocean but that woman tracked me down

It only costs a couple to catch a little buzz
It only costs a couple to catch a little buzz
Forget my lungs and liver, that woman’s in my blood

A heart is made for breaking but laws are made to bend
A heart is made for breaking but laws are made to bend
She told me it was over but I’m under her again
