If I were your little canary
A radiant heart bursting with love
Is the most beautiful thing in world
Now I have one because of you
So what can I say, I say thank you!
Know darling, you're my everything
And I cannot see my everything sad
So smile please, oh smile for me
And tell me if I were your little canary
Would you let me dance on your palm
I would strut across your outstretched arms
Digging into your bare white skin
My pink delicate harmless feet.
Tell me… in the stormy nights
Would you be my sole refuge?
In the pouring rain, in winds insane
Would you ever hear my beating wings
Against the shuttered, blackened glass
Or would you sleep while I bleed
Longing for one merciful glance.
Alas Love, Time spares nothin'
Even the love soaked hearts do fall still
You will know dear when you will see
A bird lying dead on your window sill.
