lyrics

Like a bird with clipped wings
I sit, grounded, and sing
Of the times when we were together
And the days that we'd spend
The two of us, then
Weren't so much longer as better

But now I am thinking
Of when love was the thing
Was the glue that would keep us together
And the day's that we'd spend
The two of us, then
Weren't so much longer as better

But that's all gone now
And I'm telling you how
I'm not so much wiser as older
And the space in my heart
And the space in my bed
Aren't so much wider as colder

And my days, they pass by
With a tear and a sigh
Like a song that I never could sing
But I'll think of those times
Maybe write some sad lines
Of Those Days That Weren't Longer But Better
