The Birds Will Still Be Singing Lyrics

Summertime withers as the sun descends
He wants to kiss you, will you condescend?
Before you wake and find a chill within your bones
Under a fine canopy of lover's dust and humerus bones
Banish all dismay
Extinguish every sorrow
Eternity stinks, my darling that's no joke
Don't waste your precious time pretending you're heartbroken
There will be tears and candles, pretty words to say
Spare me lily-white lilies with the awful perfume of decay
Banish all dismay
Extinguish every sorrow
If I'm lost or I'm forgiven
The birds will still be singing

It's so hard to tear myself away
Even when you know it's over
It's too much to say
Banish all dismay
Extinguish every sorrow
If I'm lost or I'm forgiven
The birds will still be singing

Thoughts & Meanings

Break-ups are very difficult to navigate.......especially after many years together. I believe Elvis experienced the pain of tearing away from his Love, then sadly, deeply pleads with her to move on....cause the birds will still be singing.......whether she forgives him or not.
