Lyrics
The tell us "Autumn's a comin' and soon everything around us will die
Only a fool believe that he is different from the birds in the sky
All those birds go chasin' some better sunny days
You can't hear them singing 'cause they've all gone away"

But this one bird didn't leave you
It stayed through the wintertime
Toy can't hear it sing but you can hear it as it flies
So don't you believe them?
They'll destroy you with their lies
They only see the obvious
They see the sun go down buy they don't see it rise

This one bird didn't leave you
You can hear it as it flies
It's not very loud but you can hear it if you try
So don't you believe them?
Yes it's true someday everything dies
We won't let that defeat us
We can't hear them singing
But we can hear it as it flies
