about

Inspired by a seagull eating a cigarette butt.

lyrics

I’m never lost for something to say
I’m bold as a gull and blue as a jay
A sky that turns from sun to gray
I’m bold as a gull and blue as a jay

And oh, can I take you home
Can I stay with you til the morning
And why oh why does this feeling die
And these lonesome blue some a-callin’

Well darling I’m not made of stone
Spent too many cold nights alone
I’m over before I begin
A soft heart with hard feelings

And oh, can I take you home
Can I stay with you til the morning
And why oh why does this feeling die
And these lonesome blue some a-callin’
