Manchester Orchestra Lyrics
5. Play It Again, Sam! You Don't Have Any Feathers
You lift your skinny fists up in the sky Packed a change of clothes and left In the middle of July 2005 But when the glass, it hit the wall Mother cried and the cops were called The day you said goodbye Your father left his work by one or two To a crying telephone His wife was on the other side of you Really did it this time The boy looks down and begins to cry The day you said goodbye And I know you've been abandoned But don't abandon ship on me Just know like a winter white snow You've been forgiven, come back to me I know right now that don't mean anything Your skinny legs bounced up into the sky I tried to tell you to be careful not to jump that high With your fingers crossed, you fall against the ground I saw it all, the day you tried to fly When the red and blue lights made the scene Your eyes were glazed, and honestly Can you remember anything? But when the others ran away I prayed to God they wouldn't stay But sometimes He doesn't listen From a father to his daughter My prodigal child, come back to me From a sinner to his Maker Your prodigal son is on his knees Sweet God, please hold on to me Sweet God, hold her please, oh please The day she tries to fly Hold me, the day I try to fly
