C      Em      F
Oh, my talking bird
           C    G      F
Though you know so few words
           C   Em     F
They're on infinite repeat
          C                G            F
Like your brain can't keep up with your beak

         C          Em   F
And your kept in an open cage
          C       G        F
So you're free to leave or stay
        C         Em     F
And sometimes you get confused
                C        G              F
Like there is a hint I'm trying to give you


The longer you think
    G                     C
The less you know what to do

Em    F

C     G      F

-Verse 2-

          C       Em           F
Well it's hard to see your way out
         C         G          F
When you live in a house in a house
           C     Em  F
'Cause you don't realize
         C            G              F
That the windows were open the whole time

    C      Em      F
But oh, my talking bird
            C            G            F
Though your feathers are tattered and furled
  C        Em       F
I love you all your days
         C                  G        F
'Til the breath leaves your delicate frame

-Chorus / Outro-

It's all here for you
   G                     Am    G    F
As long as you choose to stay
It's all here for you
   G                       C
As long as you don't fly away
