lyrics

As I lie awake at night all clinched up with fright.
I sing I sing I do I do songbird of the afternoon.

As I wake up I think of all I got then I drown out all my thoughts.
I sing I sing I do I do songbird of the afternoon.

Tears fall down like raindrops try and drown out all my thoughts.
I sing I sing I do I do songbird of the afternoon.

This is such a subtle thing so few hear what I mean.
I sing I sing I do I do songbird of the afternoon.

(Instrumental)

Tears fall down like raindrops try and drown out all my thoughts.
I sing I sing I do I do songbird of the afternoon yeah.

As I lie to rest at night all clinched up with fright.
I sink I sink I do I do songbird of the afternoon.
