Bird, Andrew - Pulaski Lyrics




Half empty, half full
Cup runneth over
Horns of plenty, coffers full
We're starting over

I write you a story
But it loses its thread
And all of my witnesses
Keep turning up, turning up dead

I paint you a picture
Of Pulaski at night
Greetings from Chicago
City of, city of light
Come back to Chicago

(Oooh, starting over)
(Oooh, starting over)

I paint you a picture
But it never looks right
Cause I fill in the shadows
And block out the, block out the light

I send you this postcard
It says, "Pulaski at night"
Greetings from Chicago
City of, city of light
Come back to Chicago
City of, city of light
Come back to Chicago

(Oooh, starting over)
(Oooh, starting over)

Half empty, half full
Cup runneth over

Bird, Andrew Pulaski Comments
  1. Alexa F.

    If this song sounds familiar, but you don't know where you heard it before... A lot of vines used this song back in the day. I just remembered I heard this in a "One Direction as disney characters" vine, and I just heard it again on OITNB, so glad I finally know the name of this beautiful song. :')

  2. elmah

    Like this "Beirut" 😇

  3. Diane Stojentin

    I will never stop hearing this song. I first heard it on it's release, when it came out on WXRT. It's a real gem.

  4. Mariangela Volonnino

    Something brought me here... Call it what you will – fate, destiny, spotify …some good taste- but I'm glade of it

  5. Cryyptick

    I definitely found this song from Orange is the New Black, won't lie. However this song is so much more than "that song from OitNB", truly an underrated song.

    The reason this is so familiar to so many people is because it’s pretty much the same riff from “who’s afraid of the big bad wolf” in the old 3 little pigs Disney cartoon

    As a fiddler myself, I really appreciate the new ground Andrew is breaking with the violin in pop music. It is something new under the sun. And as someone who loves Chicago, I am glad he has given this gift of a song to a great city.
