Miranda

Miranda.jpg“Miranda”
Lyrics and Music by Joanne Davis

Miranda meows on the porch in the Morning. She sounds just like a Crying Bird.
She has Wings, but they’re inside her. She knows she can’t Fly, but she doesn’t know why.

Miranda meows on the porch in the Evening. She sounds just like a Crying Bird.
Fluttery Wings beat inside her. She knows she can’t Fly because She Tried.

Miranda, they told a lie. They told us all the Birds were in the Sky.
But we’ve watched them gather at the window sil,
They DASH against the pain, They always will.

Miranda meows on the porch at Midnight. She sounds just like a crying Bird.
Captured Birds are locked inside her. They sing and cry because she can’t Fly.

Miranda, they told a lie. They told us all the Birds were in the Sky.
But, we’ve watched them gather at the window sil,
They DASH against the pain, They Always Will!
