Live performance of “Little Bird” by Trevor Petrie

Little Bird is an original song that I wrote back in 2010 when I was working in Melbourne during the week and returning home to Bendigo each weekend.

The song is based on the fleeting visits my fiance (now wife) would make to my apartment. They were never long enough and I always missed her terribly.

Lyrics:

Come to me, sing to me, play with me, stay with me.
I’d like to be your friend.
Walk with me, talk to me, fly up so high with me.
I’d like to be your friend.

But don’t think about tomorrow.
Just let it slip from your mind.
And don’t think about tomorrow.
So we can enjoy our time.
Little bird.

Build your nest near me so I can see you clearly.
Your eyes bring a smile to my face.
Build your nest carefully, with love so tenderly.
I like having you by my side.

But don’t think about tomorrow.
Just let it slip from your mind.
And don’t think about tomorrow.
So we can enjoy our time.
Little bird.

Come to me, sing to me, play with me, stay with me.
Walk with me, talk to me, fly up so high with me.

But don’t think about tomorrow.
Just let it slip from your mind.
And don’t think about tomorrow.
So we can enjoy our time.
Little bird.
