Now when you wake up
Night's falling someone is by your side
Pull it together, darling you're not alone

But when you break up
Sky's falling no one is on your side
Spoon dirty laundry, darling you're all alone

And when you wake up, another sunrise
Another break up, this ship is capsized
And when you wake up, another sunrise
Another break up, this ship is capsized

Just keep your lamp on

Now he's a dyin' bed maker
He's a dyin' bed maker Jesus gonna make my...
It's a holy ghost, holy ghost religion
It's a holy ghost religion Jesus gonna make my...

And when you wake up, another sunrise
Another break up, this ship is capsized
And when you wake up, another sunrise
Another break up, this ship is capsized

And when you wake up
Night's falling someone is by your side
Pull it together, darling you're not alone

But when you break up
Sky's falling no one is on your side
Spoon dirty laundry, darling you're all alone
Spoon dirty laundry, darling you're all alone
Spoon dirty laundry, darling you're all alone

And when you wake up, another sunrise
Another break up, this ship is capsized

I cringe when I hear his other tunes, but this one almost gets to really rocking, and I like it... He ate at the bar at The Kitchen recently...

This song helped me put words on what I was feeling at some point in my life. Capsized indeed. If you can sing about it, you're halfway there ๐Ÿ˜Š. Thanks, Mr Bird. For what it's worth I really like his music. The same kind of feel to it as The Shins'. ๐Ÿ˜Š
 
nicely stated there, Egctheowโ€ฆ.I've got this sucker rated a 9, mostly due to the cool beat and maybe subconsciously I really dig the lyrics too....and I know the 'capsized' feeling too, gosh, that was back in 2015 and i'm sure glad I've gotten past that time....Long Live RP!!

How do you make a duck into a soul singer? Put him in the oven 'till it's Bill Withers. I'll get my coat...
It is a Mason thing.

Yeah, it was mentioned quite a few times here - cool tune.  Completely different chords and melody, by the way.
Super smooth and cool with a good rock'n roll attitude ! Just love it !

This tune has a nice swing to it.

So, I find the chorus/bridge a little monotonous, but goddamn are the drums, guitar and bass hitting all the right spots. It's a groover, for sure!
I find it amazing! :) good experience for my ears. 7 is fair. 
This grooves.
    Serious yes for practical purposes.
 The case with the capsize guess twice.
The Bird soars! This song has one sweet groove. {#Dancingbanana_2}

Recent addition?  Not a big Bird fan either, but this ain't half bad.

:squint: Nah, they're passing the bird from one person to another, you just kind of do that.

I quite like how this Bird sounds. :)
What a cool, funky vibe to this tune.  Very nice.
