As The Crow Flies

As the crow flies from its perch
You walk away from me
My fingers grip the glass
A tear falls down my cheek
Outside a snowy window
The garden’s dressed in white
You’re leaving just as fast
As the crow flies

As the crows flies even higher
I sink the lowest yet
My nerves are all on fire
And I will not forget
Forever you’ll be free now
But I know I never will
You’ll be out there flying
As the crow flies higher still

As the crow flies swift and silent
The noise inside my head
Will overtake the warfare
That’s waged within your bed
One million miles ago
I buried all your lies
But it’s just a mile or two
As the crow flies
