Lonely Bird Blues

Psalm 102

A sad lament with a turn toward hope at the end.

 

                                                                                               

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm a lonely bird on a rooftop 
My days are burning away 
I'm a lonely bird on a rooftop 
My days are burning away. 
I'm a lonely bird waiting for mercy 

I'm a little owl in the wilderness 
My life is like an evening shadow 
I'm a little owl in the wilderness 
My life is like an evening shadow 
I'm a little owl crying out from the hole 

I'm a lonely bird 
I'm a lonely bird 
Don't you think its time? 

You broke my stride and you cut me down 
while you go on 
You broke my stride and you cut me down 
while you go on 
You broke my stride and I've been alone too long 

You're looking down from your holy sky 
You hear our prison groans 
You're looking down from your holy sky 
You hear our prison groans 
You love this lonely bird through these walls of stone
