lyrics

LYRICS:

magnetic attraction
mutual satisfaction
first sight, love at eye contact
i love it that our passion is such a high contrast
to the possessiveness that limited our loveships in the past


chorus 1:

i'm a bird who sings in the springtime
she's a girl who smiles like the sunrise
though i love the days when she's all mine
i don't try to bottle her sunshine

loving, crushing-she sees me staring
baby maybe loving is sharing
feel the wind of love on the sky
i'm a bird that can't help but fly


i can't fit inside monogamy's philosophies
of one and only constantly
stopping me from boundlessly
expressing what is possibly

the greatest force in all of me
my heart cannot be property
ownership is opposite
of all that love has taught to me

the infinite capacity
of each of us to happily
surrender to the majesty
of learning love's true mastery

each one of us a tapestry
anatomy like galaxies
it’s fallacy i’d need someone
complete the other half of me

reality is many souls
reflect my whole totality
complexity, vitality
my sensual mentality

rather than analogies
of draining like a battery
the more and more i practice love
the more my love grows naturally

i know a few interpreters
think jealousy is flattery
I avidly promote we try
to rise up from the agony
try out a brand new strategy
flip envy into ecstasy
amplified through alchemy


chorus 2:

i'm a bird who sings in the springtime
she's a girl who smiles like the sunrise
though i love the days when she's all mine
i don't try to bottle her sunshine

got a feeling girl go express it
love is never love when possessive
feel the wind of love on the sky
she's a bird that can't help but fly


if a girl ask you to dance-then dance with the girl
if it feels right, then you should hold hands with the girl
cuz i believe that god is love and love she keeps telling me
to step back, relax and deconstruct your jealousy

cuz jealousy is fear-some days i'm scared of losing you
but you and i are free to leave if we choose to
i'm taking down the bricks of this invisible wall
and when the wind of love blows, now we both can feel it all cuz

you love to hear me sing, even if you didn't write the note
i love to hear you laugh, even if i didn't tell the joke
you know i love to cuddle, love to pull your body close
and i love it when you're happy even if i have to let you go

cuz if you need your space then baby you can let me know
i'll you from afar you my star in a telescope
i'm not a god, i'm not a fool but I would be both
to think that love was something i could control


chorus 3:

i'm a bird who sings in the springtime
she's a girl who smiles like the sunrise
though i love the days when she's all mine
i don't try to bottle her sunshine

trusting, loving, true understanding
universe of us is expanding
feel the wind of love on the sky
we are a birds that can't help but fly


i love how your empathy
finds joy inside my intimacy
with someone else that's into me
love is limitless, infinity

i love it how my loyalty
dissolves your insecurity
our love it blooms concurrently
you know that's my priority

i'm soaring through an odyssey
deep in the realms of honesty
with conscious choreography
consensual autonomy

equality, responsibly
i feel our trust it waters me
a love like this is selflessly
fulfilling like a prophecy

cuz there's no better way to love me than thru honesty and trusting it's
not indiscriminate fucking, it's indiscriminate loving
its rizing up to realize that love's your greatest gift to me
it's lifting me above the narrow space of normativity
now we are one and i am free and you can take the sky with me
cuz love is phoenix flying rise up above to feel the breeze
some days will be a struggle and some will fly by with ease but i
would love it if you trust to claim this journey with me


chorus 4:

i'm a bird who sings in the springtime
she's a girl who smiles like the sunrise
though i love the days when she's all mine
i don't try to bottle her sunshine

got a feeling girl go express it
love is never love when possessive
feel the wind of love on the sky
she's a bird that can't help but fly


look right at me baby
let’s make eye contact
you trust in me, i trust in you
there’s no doubt bout that
our hearts have grown vast
I know our love’s gon last
cause soul to soul we touching
through this eye contact
