Charlotte Gainsbourg – Songbird in a Cage Lyrics

Songbird in a Cage by Charlotte Gainsbourg
Released : 2017


Flying through the sky
All our senses reeling
Now you sit and cry
At the shadows on the ceiling

Songbird in a cage
Wings that never flutter
Once I saw a bird
Pecking in the gutter

Flying through the sky
All our senses reeling
Now you sit and cry
At the shadows on the ceiling

Songbird in a cage
Someone that takes pity
Opens up the door
Fly above the city

Someone still may come
Someone who takes pity
And through an open door
You may fly above the city

Songbird in a cage
Stars will still be shining
Through the bars of steel
Picture how ti was

Flying through the sky
All our senses reeling
Now you sit and cry
At the shadows on the ceiling

Flying through the sky
All our senses reeling
Now you sit and cry
At the shadows on the ceiling

○ Listen to “Charlotte Gainsbourg” Songs

● “The Songs That We Sing”

[ Quotable ]
I saw a little girl
I stopped and smiled at her
She screamed and ran away

● “Heaven Can Wait”

[ Quotable ]
Heaven can wait
And hell’s too far ago
Somewhere between
What you need and what you know

● “Hey Joe”

[ Quotable ]
I’m goin’ down to shoot my old lady
You know I caught her messin’ ’round with another man
And that ain’t too cool
