Nightingale
 

I come into your room with
Flowers and pearls
You don’t seem to see them
Your mind is somewhere else
I’m electric, I’m on fire
You’re my nightingale
You don’t seem to see me
I’m just stuck here breathing

Can I be your guardian?
Can I be your mouth?
‘Cause I want to speak for you
Give me your soul as well
I wish I would have known you
When you were a girl
But now that you’re a woman
I can’t be someone else

There’s something wrong with this town
But I want us to stick around
We don’t know who we are strangers
We don’t know anybody else, no, no
We don’t know who we are strangers
We don’t know anybody else, no, no, no

Open your eyes for me
I only see their shell
God help me discern them
I wanna see the depth again
You were my loving steward
You were my nightingale
Now I’m thankful and I’m hoping
That you’ll turn around

There’s something wrong with this town
But I want us to stick around
Everything’s wrong with this town
But I need you to stick around

We don’t know who we are strangers
We don’t know anybody else, no, no, no
