Lyrics

It's been a while

Since winter's seen the songbird

It's been a while

Since I could hear what you heard

And a smile

Spoken like a kind word

Could heal my broken heart

Could heal my broke heart

 

 

It's been a while

Since I was on my knees

It's been a while

Since I was bold to speak

But I'm on my knees again

I'm on my knees again

 

Take me to the desert

I'm lookin' for the songbird

I'll bring her back to winter

When the wind is cold and unforgiving

 

Take me to the desert

I'm waitin' on a kind word

I am on my knees again

And the winter wind is unforgiving

 

Peter wrote

Himself as a warning

And so it goes

That people stop believing

That there's a place

Where the sun is always shining

It'll heal the broken hearts

It'll heal the broken hearts

 

Take me to the desert

I'm lookin' for the songbird

I'll bring her back to winter

When the wind is cold and unforgiving

 

Take me to the desert

I'm waitin' on a kind word

I am on my knees again

And the winter wind is unforgiving
