lyrics

pretty feathers

oh mama mama mama won’t you take me down your street tonight
i want to ride this feeling like a ghost under the full moon light
outside the joker’s are wild and irony is still on fire
i wanna say something so serious even the hipsters in brooklyn will be scared to deny

oh hope your pretty feathers
are brushing against us
oh we’ll get better
come on mama come and take me home

i know you’re scared mama everyone’s scared these are dangerous times feels like the world’s getting dim, feels like everybody’s going blind
there are bells in the sky and i’m telling you the clouds are ringing
there’s a child in my life and i swear to you he’ll never stop singing

hope your pretty feathers
are brushing against us
oh we’ll get better
come on mama come and take me home

you’re the chorus you’re the bridge
you’re the music inside of everything
i’m the writer you’re the song
you’re the verses i never could write
i want to sing you every night

oh hope your pretty feathers
are brushing against us
oh we’ll get better

oh hope your pretty feathers
are brushing against us
oh we’ll get better

come on mama come and take me
come on mama come and take me
come on mama come and take me
come on mama come and take me home
