lyrics

i got a vulture in my heart
feeds on pain she feeds on scars
tries to make me think we're one & the same
but i am not i am not i am not i am not you
i am not i am not i am not i am not

oh mother, the sky is calling me
what else could i do?
oh father, i held on long as i could
but the choking loyalty
i had to let it go too

i learned it before i had words to say no
i learned it slipping under my skin in the summer
& i built myself around the paradox
but i am not i am not i am not i am not you
i am not i am not i am not i am not

oh mother, i'm sorry
i don't know what to give you
oh father, i'm trying anyway
'cause i learned that from you
but i had to let it go too

what do these words mean to you, what do these words mean:
a bridge & a bird & a diamond at its throat
& the glittering stone keeps it close to the boat
& the sun goes down every day around 3
& it rains & it storms & it pours
& the bird don't ever break free
though it is not held by a leash
& the grey wrapping up your mind
i do not intend to make mine

oh mother, the sky is calling me
what else could i do?
oh father, it's waiting there for me
& i can only do
what i can do

about

rorie kelly New York

rorie kelly is on a quest to bring her songs to ears around the world through the cunning use of the internet and a small blue Toyota with over 200,000 miles on it.

rorie writes songs that are melodic and catchy but more thoughtful and introspective than the average pop tune. Her vocals are bigger than you would expect out of her small body and her guitar playing is powerful and percussive.
