lyrics

do you remember the time at mother's house
when you let the songbirds fly into the amber clouds
and as the sunlight pierced their feathered blue
you told me they'd rather die free than live caged in this dusty room

so how 'bout I'll be the song and you'll be the flight
and I'll be the lamp post and you'll be the nightingale
just don't fly away now

'cause I'll be strong and you'll be wild
and I'll be grown up and you'll be stoned out of your mind
just don't fight me now

and when I look back now there's something I can't pin down
but these memories of your crazy magic are all that I have now
sister you've got a spell on me that won't let go
how I wish I could understand what happened so long ago

do you remember the look on father's brow
when you punched him in the shoulder and ran out of the house
and as we watched you crying in the street
I said father why is it her instead of me

'cause I know I'll be the road and you'll be the winding
and I'll be the rope and you'll be the uncoiling
just don't run from me

and when I look back now there's something I can't pin down...

so I'll be the song and you'll be the flight
and I'll be the one who stays up all night
and I'll find a husband and I'll raise a family
and I'll be the house you knock down when you're angry
and I'll be the deep roots and you'll be the ragged shoes
and I'll be the one who stays caged in this dusty room

oh sister you've got a spell on me that won't let go
how I wish I could know, how I wish I could know
