about

This is a stripped down, acoustic version of a song that will eventually be released as an alt-country track on Alrightx2's next EP, NEARBY. Written while on a hut trip in a remote region of the Rocky Mountains, this song evokes longing and nostalgia while celebrating resilience and strength in the midst of pain.

lyrics

V1
Everything I’ve ever know
Albeit, strange and broken
has become a stumbling stone
a cracked and crumbling foundation
Vanishing act lovers, the magicians
sawed the family in half, all the repercussions...
Decades of awkward photographs, graduations … fumbling down the aisle
CHORUS
But little girls get older
Little birds fly away, fly away
that other world grows colder
as we forge a brand new day
mama when you left me
didn’t think I’d ever find my way
the birds ate all the breadcrumbs
while the forest watched and prayed
V2
Sitting by the fire now
Laughter all around
I guess I survived obliteration; like a refugee I
Make my home most anywhere
When you left I was the field after the game, years of practice
suddenly obsolete
Funny, now I don’t wanna play anymore
and i won't take the blame
CHORUS 2
But little girls get older
Little birds fly away, fly away from the fray
another year of closure
underpinnings and scaffolding still stay
Lover when you left me
didn’t think i’d ever find my way
shadows still surround me
As I clear the cobs away
BRIDGE
What if nothing ever broke?
What if everything stayed the same?
Never learned how to change?
Even woods and waters rearrange,
Pictures fade in the frame
The familiar becomes strange
But little girls get older
But little girls get older
But little birds get older
Little girls fly away, fly away
I find myself grow bolder
finding solace amid decay
