said she's as sober as a judge
and i wasn't feeling so bad
so i took her back home
thinking bout how lucky i am
another one of those nights
riding with the drunks on the path
when i got her back home
we stayed up all night and we laughed
and i played my guitar

she said did you hear
about the people that came out of the trees
they walked right out
looking for something to be
said those metal birds in the sky
are they riding on invisible roads
you see we came outside
cause we were hoping that somebody would know
where are they flying to


she got out of bed
and asked me if i knew how to pray
i told her the thing
is just knowing what you wanna say
walked her down to the train
and showed her which way to go
watched her walk down the stairs
and remembered it was time to go
home for mother's day
