Bird Stealing Bread Lyrics

Tell me, baby, tell me
Are you still on the stoop watching the windows close?
I've not seen you lately
On the street by the beach or places we used to go

I've a picture of you
On our favorite day by the seaside
There's a bird stealing bread
That I brought out from under my nose

Tell me, baby, tell me
Does his company make light of a rainy day?
How I've missed you lately
And the way you would speak and all that we wouldn't say

Do his hands in your hair
Feel a lot like a thing you believe in?
Or a bit like a bird
Stealing bread out from under your nose?

Tell me, baby, tell me
Do you carry the words around like a key or change?
I've been thinking lately
Of a night on the stoop and all that we wouldn't say

If I see you again
On the street by the beach in the evening
Will you fly like a bird
Stealing bread out from under my nose?
