Lori McKenna - Two Birds Lyrics



One was a red dress, a wild one from out West
Didn’t waste a minute with her heart
The other was a bluebird, careful with her sweet words
Unless she let you hold her in the dark

They fell for him one at a time, for his silver-tongued pickup lines
So easily they flew into the cage

One got a diamond, one got a hotel room
One got a promise, one got to say, «I do»
Both up so high till they met one night
His name came up and they fell from the sky
Two birds, one stone

One sang a song so wild and free, the other sang at the kitchen sink
And he longed for the melody of both
He wasn’t cruel, he wasn’t mean, but he had a way of breaking things
His aim was truer than an arrow from a bow

One got a diamond, one got a hotel room
One got a promise, one got to say, «I do»
Both up so high till they met one night
His name came up and they fell from the sky
Two birds, one stone

He’ll roll along, we all know he will
Find another set of wings on some windowsill
Two birds, one stone
