Your heart sings like a kettle

And your words, they boil away like steam.

G B
Despite the queuing out your door.
B E G B
I am empty as a promise, no more.

I was salted by your hunger,
G B
Now you've gone and lost your appetite
B E G B
And a little bird is every bit as handy in a fight.

I am lonely as a memory

Aren't you every bird on every wire?
