Time

from American Jukebox Fables

I'm coming back tomorrow
And I'm gonna shake you off
I'm taking the streets you borrowed
when we were broken
when I was lost

The grapevine says you're married now
you've got a baby
House on a hill
but we're strangers somehow
can you blame me?

Time is a bird that can't be caged
It takes to the wind
and steals the days away
Isn't it time we called a truce?
Another year is all we lose
A year, a day,
a bird that can't be caged
