FROM A YELLOW BIRD

Jack and Sheryl Tempchin

I wake in the morning alone in my bed
My heart still aching from the things we said
I drink my coffee and watch the dawn
And search for a reason to carry on

There's a yellow bird
Right outside my window
Just a voice I heard
Singing to the sun
Another lonely night has gone
I face another day
What's there to believe in now
That love has gone away
Just a song I heard
From a yellow bird

Now deep in my heart it's so cloudy and grey
And I know this rain ain't gonna go away
But out in the garden I can hear a song
About a beautiful world where nothing is wrong

It's just a yellow bird
Right outside my window
Just a voice I heard
Singing to the sun
Nothing takes away the pain
But lonely tears and time
Somehow you must believe
Someday the sun will shine
It's just a song I heard
From a yellow bird

Sometimes life don't seem worthwhile
You lose your laugh and you lose your smile
And you can't see up around the bend
To know if these dark times will end

There's a yellow bird
Right outside my window
Just a voice I heard
Singing to the sun
Another lonely night has gone
I face another day
What's there to believe in now
That love has gone away
Just a song I heard
From a yellow bird
