I had a dream about Avril Lavigne. She was singing this song. When I woke up, I wrote down the lyrics, and figured it out on my guitar.


{Stanza 1}
Wherever I go, whatever I say
I'm a lost bird
Whatever I do, leads far away
and I'm gone now
Come downtown fire of night
and I'll see you
Darkness breeds, restores my sight
I'm a lost bird

Hey, I'm a lost bird

{Stanza 2}
Your smile's fake, just like you
but I'm fine now
When you're gone, you haunt me
and I hate you
I wish I could bring this to an end
and destroy you
This sorrow breeds, this passion kills
I'm a lost bird

Come back now, and I'll see you
Come back now, and I'll touch you
Come back now, and I'll know you
Come back now, and I'll taste you

{Stanza 3}
Considering now, your friendly gaze
but can you warm me?
Will I run, or give love a chance?
I don't know yet
I pray that you make a certain end
to this sadness
Or give it a rest and leave me alone
with my madness
