Fish And Bird

"Fish and Bird" by Tom Waits

 

They bought a round for the sailor

And they heard his tale

Of a world that was so far away

And a song that we'd never heard

A song of a little bird

That fell in love with a whale

 

He said, 'You cannot live in the ocean'

And she said to him

'You never can live in the sky'

But the ocean is filled with tears

And the sea turns into a mirror

There's a whale in the moon when it's clear

And a bird on the tide

 

Please don't cry

Let me dry your eyes

 

So tell me that you will wait for me

Hold me in your arms

I promise we never will part

I'll never sail back to the time

But I'll always pretend you're mine

Though I know that we both must part

You can live in my heart

 

Please don't cry

Let me dry your eyes

 

And tell me that you will wait for me

Hold me in your arms

I promise we never will part

I'll never sail back to the time

But I'll always pretend that you're mine

I know that we both must part

You can live in my heart
