Seagulls

Written by Comfort Cat

When the first troubles of the day begin
make me think of things I never like to think
there are voices high
in the salty sky
that make me sigh
if I should die today, I
wish that I could say I
lived my life as they live everyday

like the road is wide as the mountains were made
before the first time it rained
like the world is ripe for the takin’
with french fries and bacon
and stale buns are bakin’
the early bird gets the worm

if I should die today, I
wish that I could say I
sang the song that they sing everyday

When I hear them cry,
I reach for the sky with my eyes
because I can’t fly
gettin high o’er the sea and the meadows
the buildings that I left behind,
the faces that got lost to time
the ones who had to set me free,
who might still be a part of me
the early bird gets the worm

if I should die today, I
wish that I could say I
lived my life as they live everyday

if I should die today, I
wish that I could say I
sang the song that they sing everyday

I wanna be like they are every day
I wanna scream like they scream every day
I wanna fly like they fly every day

(why can’t I live as they live everyday?)
