Got up early this morning
Took my coffee out under the tree
Let the quiet soothe me
Bird song flowing like music for free
Like music for free
Just like music for free
Bird song is flowing
Nothing but music for free

Don’t say my neighbors are sleeping
Don’t say they’re not mostly like me
Don’t say I know what’s coming
Out in the yard I breath in peace
I breath in peace
I breath in peace
Out in the yard
Is where I breath in peace
