Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Why, sparrow, why?
Won't you tell me why I'm sad?
Sing us both a melody, the best that you can
Fly, sparrow, fly
Won't you sit on my hand?
Sing it in that language we both can understand

[Chorus]
When you sit on that tree
Look in my eyes
I wonder what goes on in your mind

[Verse 2]
Speak, sparrow, speak
Please, won't you try?
Tell me why you'd walk if you knew that you could fly
Speak, sparrow, speak
Oh, please, won't you try?
Tell me all the answers to this meaningless life

[Chorus]
But you're up on that tree
And you look in my eyes
I wonder what goes on in your mind

[Verse 3]
Stay, sparrow, stay
Won't you stay in my window?
I've never been so close to anything so beautiful
Wait, sparrow, wait
Oh, please don't you go
I love the way our feathers move as the wind it blows

[Chorus]
But you're up on that tree
And you look in my eyes
I wonder what goes on in your mind

[Verse 4]
Sing, sparrow, sing
Sing away the pain
When you get to the bones of it, we are just the same
I said: sing, sparrow, sing
Sing away our pain
I'll never hear a melody as sweet as today

[Outro]
Cause you're up in that tree
And you look in my eyes
And I wonder how, but you're saying goodbye
