lyrics

I'm shoveling coal
into a hole
in the furnace of my heart.
This engine of old
silent and cold
will fire to the light of your spark.

Blue birds they fly
in the sparkle of your eyes
(blink and they will flutter).
Girl don’t you cry
it's going be alright
(it’s a world of wonder).


You were three days old
I was feeling so bold
I held your little heart next to mine.
And when you would go
I’d hope that you'd know
the sound of that big drum of mine.

Blue birds they fly
in the sparkle of your eyes
(blink and they will flutter).
Girl don’t you cry
it's going be alright
(it’s a world of wonder).

It's going to be alright
