And Then The Birds Came

The Penny Collector (2017)

It was just a month ago
When my body failed me
My body failed me

Then I received a phone call
From my daddy
His body failed
What are we to do?

It was like the sky fell
All around us
All around us

And a billion stars
They lost their brightness
We lost our brightness

It was so dark
It was so

It was like the candle
It burned from both ends
I tried to stop it
It lit my chest up
I poured my heart out
I felt so much love

And then the birds came
They took my dad away
It was so quiet
The world just came alive
My mama came alive
My brother came alive

That’s how my daddy lived
The birds they wanted him
They knew he’d help them fly
