Bird, Andrew - Tin Foiled Lyrics




What is moving will be still
What has gathered will disperse
What's been built up will collapse
All of your dreams are fulfilled

Late New Years Eve paper hat on your head
It was hard to believe that you'd ever be dead
And that dream that you're falling you've had since you're five
Is a bird on your shoulder that whispers goodbye, goodbye

What is moving will be still
What has gathered will disperse
What has been built up will collapse
All of your dreams are fulfilled

And Liza Minnelli spent a month in her bed
She was certain that Skylab would fall on her head
Evil Knievel shot up from dead grass
And I loved him better each time that he crashed, that he crashed

What is moving will be still
What has gathered will disperse
What's been built up will collapse
All of your dreams are fulfilled

Last night I dreamed that I dug my own grave
And I climbed down inside there to patiently wait
And down in the ground while I breathed the cold air
The blackbirds came down there to nest in my hair

What's moving will be still
What has gathered will disperse
What has been built up will collapse
All of your dreams
All of your dreams are fulfilled
Are fulfilled
Are fulfilled
Are fulfilled
Are

  1. babette loos

    what a great and lovely song!

  2. Master Carbuncle

    This reminds me of when white 'rock' bands started diluting the blues. It's cute, but is lacks the heart and weight of the original. This whole album is AB photoshopping the shadows out of the HF's music, which kind of results in flat, reflective surfaces. HF songs without shadows is like... Blues without blues...

    In what way is the sadness missing in Andrew Bird's in this song? I'm curious. Is it the singing, the happy beat, his singing?

    What is moving will be still 
    What has gathered will disperse 
    What's been built up will collapse 

    All of your dreams are fulfilled

    Late New Years Eve paper hat on your head
    It was hard to believe that you'd ever be dead
    And that dream that you're falling you've had since you're five
    Is a bird on your shoulder that whispers goodbye, goodbye

    What is moving will be still
    What has gathered will disperse
    What has been built up will collapse
    All of your dreams are fulfilled

    And Liza Minnelli spent a month in her bed
    She was certain that Skylab would fall on her head
    Evil Knievel shot up from dead grass
    And I loved him better each time that he crashed, that he crashed

    What is moving will be still
    What has gathered will disperse
    What's been built up will collapse
    All of your dreams are fulfilled

    Last night I dreamed that I dug my own grave
    And I climbed down inside there to patiently wait
    And down in the ground while I breathed the cold air
    The blackbirds came down there to nest in my hair

    What's moving will be still
    What has gathered will disperse
    What has been built up will collapse
    All of your dreams
    All of your dreams are fulfilled
    Are fulfilled
    Are fulfilled
    Are fulfilled
    Are

    Amazing!!

  5. 玛轼亚瑟

    Can't stop listening. Fantastic!

  6. Josiah Shank

    Andrew Bird has good taste. These Handsome Family Band songs he chose to cover on this album are lyrical genius.
