A mellow crossover jazz song about a man’s bittersweet reminiscence about a love that has left him

Lyrics

Saw a white bird by the roadside, wading near the riverbed
The sunlight fading, turning skies to darker shades of red
And somewhere in a daydream is where you'll find my head
Ever time I see reminders of you dear

The ice cream stand where we first kissed now overgrown with weeds
The dampness of the morning mist brings stiffness to my knees
And stares within the mirror fill my mind with disbelief
Of how long has gone by without you here

But every time this heart of mine just lights up when a when a white bird still appears

A stranger in a new town far away from what we shared
I try to keep my mind upon the work that I must bear
And even though the money's good, I simply just don't care
To nothing in my life do I endear

Your chortled laugh now mingles with the barroom's late night sounds
Our favorite song begins to play so I have another round
And right here in this whiskey glass is where I'll choose to drown
Another day or week or month or year

But every time this heart of mine just lights up when that White Bird fills my ears

'Cause even though I know your love for me has died
And there's no hope for your return to me
Those memories of times we shared still make me smile
My White Bird I set free to fly

There's a white bird by the roadside, wading near the riverbed
The sunlight fading, turning skies to darker shades of red
Forever in a daydream is where you'll find my head
'Cause all I see's reminders of you dear

And every time this heart of mine just lights up when that white bird reappears
Yes, every time this heart of mine just lights up when that white bird reappears
