lyrics

Wait, the thrill’s in the timing.
Hushed in a perfect evening, we’re ending.
And you dance, glittering, electric,
Pressed close in disrepair, we’re beaming.

And after all, the bluebirds still sing, but it doesn’t mean anything.
We’re dancing like it’s all we’ve ever known.

Darling, the thrill’s in the heartbreak.
Bursting with the promise of grace, we’re streaming.
And you believe, with a fondness for love,
Beneath this smoky white dawn, we’re everything.

And after all, the bluebirds still sing, but it doesn’t mean anything
We’re dancing like it’s all we’ve ever known.

And she says “This isn’t love.”
It’s just sleepless nights and worn out shoes.
A flightless bird with nothing to prove.
Some thunderstorms and a heavy rain.
A broken leg and those Dancehall Days.
It’s Ben E. King and it’s a tidal wave.
A shot of whiskey that kept us brave,
All those summers in the Ocean State.
Just another bluebird we tried to save.

And after all, the bluebirds still sing, but it doesn’t mean anything
We’re dancing like it’s all we’ve ever known.
And after all, the bluebirds still sing, but it doesn’t mean anything
We’re dancing like it’s all we’ve ever known.
