LITTLE BIRD

Flashing blue lights
And sounds of sirens
A body of a women lying cold on the streets
The paramedics did everything to save her life
But she had reached the end of the line
She was raped four times and used
Her body was bloody broken and bruised
She was beaten and dragged into the woods
In her final moment her slit lips mumbled
She said "take my hand and don't let go
Cause out of this hell we'll climb"
In that moment of silence a little bird flew off the tree

Cold night and blistering wind
On his way home, coming from a drink
He find his door half shut, he didn't even bother to look for his keys
He walk in and sees the 3 dead bodies of his kids
The three dead bodies had their throats slit
Beside them was a little note
A note from his wife, in it she wrote
I did this cause you failed to provide for me and our kids
Good bye I'm better of living in the wind
At that moment he overhead an update from the news on TV
There was a women who was raped and left for dead at the scene
He looked closely to find it was his wife
With a tear in his eye he took his gun and ended his life
In his final words he said "take my hand and don't let go
Cause out of this hell we'll climb"
In the silence there was a sound the little bird flew off the tree

This little bird was me
And this is the pain I've come to see
My faint beating heart still bleeds
For I was there when she went to the streets
For I was there when he went to fill his greed
I saw it all what happened to her at the scene
I saw it all what she did to her kids
I saw it all when he went down on his knees
But I was just a little bird in a tree
A little bird who's words went unheard cause I couldn't speak
I tried to reach to him
I tried but couldn't help her on the street
So I'll take their hands and never let go
Cause out of this hell we'll
