There’s a new song coming
I can feel it in the air
And the robin sings along
She’s singing like she just doesn’t care
But I’ve been hurt before,
I’ve tried to cover my wounds with words
And I am scared to go
The way of the hummingbird

Got me some fire and ice
Now I’m left with lukewarm water
And I am made of some woman’s son
And some daddy’s daughter
They’ll put a blanket over me
And I will gaze at the night-time sky
Ah yeah, when all the chips are down
There’ll still be starfish dancing way up high

Although I move around a lot,
I never quite seem to break from the past
And yeah I know that I lost you
For the life of me, I can’t remember
When I had you last
I try to picture what I want
But the images are so blurred
So now it’s time for me to go
The way of the hummingbird

I’m gonna travel back in time
I’m gonna pick up right where it ended
Gonna see it to the other side
Till all the parts are newly blended
And there’ll be beauty all around
All the answers will come first, second, third
And I’ll be glad that I went
The way of the hummingbird

Da da da da da da da da da da da da da daaaaa
Da da da da da da da da da da da da da da da daaaaa
